REVIEWS 

Ms. Henson used to be a realtor, a marketer for a construction company, so what
else would you expect to find in her debut novel? She weaves in business with a mystery
and holds out to very end to spring a few surprises.
It’s an intricate mystery with suspense in every chapter as the heroine uncovers a
lot of dirty secrets.
Realtor Toni Matthews does not believe her fiancé Scott, killed himself at his construction site.
The police won’t listen, Scott’s brother is contesting the will, and Toni soon finds herself in mortal
danger when she starts discovering clues that point in a different direction than suicide. Who killed
Scott and who’s trying to kill her? The brother? Scott’s supposed girlfriend? A construction worker
who disappeared after Scott died? Scott’s partner? Toni must use her intelligence to stay one step
ahead, even to the point of playing dead. It was too late for her fiancé and the damaging information
he discovered and left for her. Who can Tony trust before she finds it’s too late for her?
“Deed to Death” is a fine first novel with short chapters to keep the action moving. Mystery
aficionados will recognize the red herrings, but may not deduce all the clues. This reader was
pleasantly surprised by the strategy used by Matthews during her investigation as well as the
climactic revelations
