LILLY'S RANSOM by Ensley Williams

Aventine Press
1023 4th Avenue #204
San Diego, CA 92101
Genre: Fiction/Mystery
Rating: Good
ISBN: 1593303580, $12.95, 168 pp.

Quoting from the back cover: "The year is 1921. The Great War is over, the Jazz Age has begun, and Lilly Harrison’s husband has fled to New Orleans, leaving her to face the dangerous bootleggers and narcotics dealers of Tampa. With the help of her best friend and her courtly and kind father, Lilly begins to rebuild her life, but she has a decision to make–and an enormous price to pay."

Lilly’s Ransom is a good little mystery and well written. It’s believable and carries the reader right along. I can’t say that the writing is anything exceptional, but it does work and that’s what is important.

I certainly can recommend this little novel to mystery readers, particularly those who like stories that take place in different eras.
