Murder of a Pink Elephant
Scumble River Series, No 6
By Denise Swanson

     Denise Swanson has done it again! She has continued to entertain this particular reader with her next mystery starring the infamous school psychologist, Skye Denison. In Murder of a Pink Elephant, Skye is forced to deal with a murder mystery on a much closer level. Her brother, Vince, has formed a band, Pink Elephant, and things start going a little haywire, especially with a groupie and the murder of a band member. Can Skye save her brother from being thrown in jail?

    Ms. Swanson continues to develop a strong character in Skye Denison. Skye's problems, with the school life and now the addition of the mystery of her brother's band mate, continue to show that Denise Swanson has some knowledge of the subjects that she writes about. For example, the musical knowledge demonstrated in the book shows that Ms. Swanson has done some research in the area. She, in fact, acknowledges her cousin for the help.

     This reader continues to encourage Ms. Swanson to continue on with the series starring Skye Denison. Ms. Swanson is a great contributor to the mystery genre.
