About Donna Huston Murray

Donna Huston Murray writes character-driven mystery and suspense novels from the perspective of a woman who doesn’t take herself too seriously. While male counterparts tackle plots with the brain and brawn of an NFL linebacker, Murray’s heroines use their own life experience and an instinctive understanding of human nature. An interviewer once remarked that he read a Murray mystery, “to find out how a woman thinks.” She wished him good luck with that.

The book introduces us to a new gutsy, independent female role model, who takes life's lemons and makes really sour lemonade. Yet she triumphs in this breezy, curl up in a big chair with a cup of tea, thriller. I look forward to more exciting adventures with Lauren Beck.

Lauren Beck, a young ex-cop newly hired as a special investigator for a large insurance company in Landis, Pennsylvania, has recently survived a major battle with cancer. After Beck helps a dear friend, Corinne, cope with the same illness, Corinne dies and Beck is accused of her murder. Beck finds herself the target of a vicious and deviously clever enemy who deprives her of her resources (including her home and all her money) in a way calculated to frame her for Corinne’s murder.
If you enjoy Sue Grafton’s Kinsey Millhone, you will love Lauren Beck--a strong-minded, intelligent, and gutsy heroine with the enlightened life-focus of someone who has narrowly escaped death. Beck is a genuine and complex character with just enough humor and vulnerability to make her immediately likeable. This is an intriguing mystery with no drag in pace or suspense. Beck faces one obstacle after another, and just as one seems to be overcome, another takes its place. But she perseveres until she uncovers a crime so heinous that it shocks even her jaded sensibilities.
CURED is a wonderful start to a new series by Donna Huston Murray. I am already hooked on Lauren Beck and cannot wait for the next installment.
