What could be the possible motive of a murderer when he killed his best friend and partner, and set the wife up to be the prime suspect of the killing? Murder-mystery novel enthusiasts can begin their search for the answer in author Lydia Smith’s new book, Creede. This book perfectly combines the right elements—terrific characters, interesting backdrop and fast-paced action—to make an engrossing read that will surely leave readers at the edge of their seats.

Melvin Miller has been murdered and his wife, Cassie, is the prime suspect of the heinous crime. Cassie barely escapes the clutches of the two Dallas detectives that have come to arrest her. She has no choice but to call her two best friends, Gillian and Lori, to help her find the real murderer and prove her innocence. Soon she finds herself not only running from the law, but running for her life. The murderer has followed them to Creede, Colorado where he kidnaps Cassie as well as Gillian’s children. Will Cassie and the children be able to escape and pin the true murderer to the claws of justice?

In Creede, Smith has skillfully written a stunning narrative that not only offers absolute entertainment, but also serves as a reminder to the readers of the value of friendship and family as it tells about the ups and downs of everyday life and being able to depend on family and friends when they are needed most.
