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 McMahan Grimes. When her newly crowned half-brother is missing and the turns up dead, Theresa concludes that her new family ties can be nothing but family lies. When these family ties are indeed uncovered as family lies, our gumshoe is now in fear of her own life and she realizes just how serious this matter is. Xetuem 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 involved in the mystery. Who dunnit? Who killed Theresa's half-brother? Was it Theresa's mom? The man next door? The butler? When Theresa realizes this case is destroying her marriage, she decides that her days as a gumshoe must cease, but not without solving this case, and uncovering the truth about her father, and the corpse; only blood will tell. Grimes writes a tale that will surely put Theresa Galloway among the great female sleuths. Grimes offers to the African- American mystery lovers the chance to see a heroine as one of their owti. One of the first novels in the Theresa Galloway series. Grimes is destined to take her place beside her alter- ego and let the world know there is a place for African- American mysteries.
