Title: Ensconced
Author: M. E. May
Published: 2013, M&B Literary Publications
No. of Pages: 225
Cover Price: $14.95 Paperback; 2.99 Kindle US



Ensconced, the third novel of the Circle City Mystery Series by M.E. May, tells the story of Detectives Tyrone Mayhew and his partner, Ben Jacobs, who work in the Missing Persons Department, and are faced with solving a 10 year old cold case murder when the victim’s submerged car is discovered by two fishermen. Shortly afterward a psychic tells the police where to find the body. The victim’s husband insists that the victim, Wendy Masterson, ran off with a lover, and two of his sons collaborate his story, as well as their alibis on the night of the murder. His third son, Jared, has experienced horrible nightmares over the entire 10 years, and can’t remember anything that happened the night his mother disappeared. His father and brothers have been brainwashing him to make sure he won’t remember.

As the investigation progresses, Jared becomes convinced that he must find a way to break through his suppressed memory to find the key to what really happened to his mother. He cooperates with Tyrone and Ben to help solve the murder, but his father and brothers, who know what actually happened, try to prevent the police from investigating. Although Tyrone was involved in the original investigation as a rookie and trusted what his experienced partner deemed important, he discovers that several leads were not followed, the crime scene wasn’t processed, and evidence was ignored. As Tyrone and Ben get closer to solving the crime, their lives and the lives of their loved ones, as well as professionals helping on the case, are in grave danger. As clues are uncovered, the suspense builds, and there are twists and turns that keep readers on the edge of their seats. Although some parts of the plot are fairly predictable, there are enough surprises throughout to definitely keep a reader’s interest.

While Ensconced is a short, quick read, the characters are well-developed, and the story is well-written. The characters are down-to-earth, and believable. The events in the personal lives of the detectives outside of the Department make them seem real. Although there is the implication of violence, it is not graphic, so this novel is a good choice for suspense readers of all ages. For those looking for an easy suspense novel, Ensconced is recommended.
