A Dead Red Alibi by R. P. Dahlia



A successful, but reclusive young artist with a secret life.
A wannabe lawman and his dotty gun-toting granddad
An abandoned mine pit
A curious dad and a very dead police chief

When Lalla and her dad take a trip to Arizona to inspect her new property, Dad disappears. Thankfully, Lalla enlists the help of a local tracker and finds him unharmed, but in the bottom of a mine pit. Unfortunately, he’s got company–a local police chief, and it looks like he’s been murdered. Then too, a young woman artist living nearby has also been murdered. What’re the chances that these two murders are going to be related? Well, if you’re Lalla Bains, you don’t guess, you start looking for the killer!


My dad huffed out an exasperated sigh. “Someone has to take his side.”
Caleb Stone was always meant to be my dad’s son, if not by birth, then by proxy—all he had to do was marry me. But now even that seemed to be slipping away.
Aunt Mae put her arm around me. “My girl, I only loved two men in my life. The rest came in as poor seconds. It’s a rare thing you know, men like your Caleb.”
“He’s a rare one alright. Did they all get cold feet before the wedding?”
She snorted. “The first one did. I had to hunt him down, sober him up, and we were late for our own wedding, but after that we lasted almost twenty years.”
“The aero-ag business is sold and I really can’t see myself sticking around just to hear his excuses, can you?”
“Well, married or not,” she said pulling an envelope out of her purse. “I think this might be just what you need.”



Author Bio:

I sort of fell into the job of running a crop-dusting business when my dad decided he’d rather go on a cruise than take another season of lazy pilots, missing flaggers, testy farmers and horrific hours. After two years at the helm, I handed him back the keys and fled to a city without any of the above. And no, I was never a crop-duster.

My Lalla Bains series is about a tall, blond and beautiful ex-model turned crop-duster who, to quote Lalla Bains, has “been married so many times they oughta revoke my license.” Lalla is no Danielle Steele character & she’s not afraid of chipping her manicure. Scratch that, the girl doesn’t have time for a manicure what with herding a bunch of recalcitrant pilots and juggling work orders just to keep her father’s flagging business alive.
