Ellison Wolford Russell takes a swim early every morning at the country club before sunrise, but this particular morning she is not alone because there is a dead body in the pool with her who happens to be Madeline Harper, someone she has known for a long time and one of her husband’s dominatrix mistresses. All Ellison can think about is how her overpowering mother will react to the news that she has found a body floating in the country club pool and whether Henry is involved.
Everyone knows all the dirt on every member of the exclusive country club and believes Ellison may be responsible for Madeline’s demise. As Ellison is questioned by the police, she believes that Henry had nothing to do with the murder and sets out on her own to find the killer while placing her life in danger.
Ellison begins her investigation and discovers letters in Henry’s home safe that contain comprising photographs of country club members including that of her father. Now the tables are turning in the direction of Henry as a blackmailing suspect who has disappeared since Madeline’s murder. How will Ellison overcome the overbearing mother and demeaning husband while searching for the killer in a mysterious murder?
The Deep End is an enjoyable murder mystery for anyone who loves crime drama mysteries with a little comical wit. I am looking forward to the next installment in The Country Club Murders series hoping it will be just as good as the first.
