Dying Brand - A Review

Dying Brand

Wendy Tyson

A Review

Wendy Tyson has another winner.  Allison Campbell, image consultant, and her collection of dysfunctional friends are destined to involve themselves in another series of murders ranging from Southeastern Pennsylvania to Florida to Maine.  And, as in her previous books, Allison's life is on the line.

Corporate corruption is at the center of the current crime spree.  The question is, "Who is corrupting and who are the victims?"  The answers are not always as clear as the average person might like - but then real life is sometimes like that.  

Though I was disappointed in some of the more explicit relationship details given in the book, the plot, characters, and setting did hold my attention.  Having spent some time in Southeastern PA, I found myself at home as Allison and her comrades toured the countryside.  As in her earlier books, the story wraps itself around multiple mysteries - some of which coalesce and some of which have their own story line.  But put together, we meet people who both struggle with fictional problems that most of us will never see and real problems that most of us will face at some point in our lives. Together they make an interesting tale that pulls the reader along and makes for some great late night reading.

Interestingly, though the book is scheduled for a Spring release (after a very cold winter), the story is a Fall thriller that allows the reader to enjoy all the beauty of that wonderful season.

This review is based on a free electronic copy provided by the publisher for the purpose of creating this review.  The opinions expressed are my own.
