Grimes offers mystery lovers
By Kenya Samuels
What would you do if a
sU'anger claiming to be your
father's love child showed up on
How would you feel if she/he
ended up a corpse one week
later? That is what Theresa
Galloway, pseudo-private eye
encountered in "Blood Will Tell"
(242 pages, Signet, $5.50), a
page-turning mystery by
African-American writer Terris
When her newly crowned
half-brother is missing and the
turns up dead, Theresa concludes
that her new family ties can be

Theresa is a hardworking
mother and wife in Sacramento,
Clalifomia. While trying to
juggle her personal life with that
of her alter-ego, Theresa loses
perspective, and it almost costs
her marriage. It is only after a
stranger manipulates his way
into the heart and home of her
mother that she becomes so

of their owti. One of the first
novels in the Theresa Galloway
series. Grimes is destined to
take her place beside her alter-
