Book Tour: A Dead Red Alibi by R P Dahlke

First let me introduce you to the author:

I sort of fell into the job of running a crop-dusting business when my dad decided he'd rather go on a cruise than take another season of lazy pilots, missing flaggers, testy farmers and horrific hours. After two years at the helm, I handed him back the keys and fled to a city without any of the above. And no, I was never a crop-duster.

My Lalla Bains series is about a tall, blond and beautiful ex-model turned crop-duster who, to quote Lalla Bains, has "been married so many times they oughta revoke my license." Lalla is no Danielle Steele character & she's not afraid of chipping her manicure. Scratch that, the girl doesn't have time for a manicure what with herding a bunch of recalcitrant pilots and juggling work orders just to keep her father's flagging business alive.

New Release and #4 in the Dead Red Mystery Series on

 Now for the back cover blurb for this fabulous book:

A successful, but reclusive young artist with a secret life.
A wannabe lawman and his dotty gun-toting granddad
An abandoned mine pit
A curious dad and a very dead police chief

When Lalla and her dad take a trip to Arizona to inspect her new property, Dad disappears. Thankfully, Lalla enlists the help of a local tracker and finds him unharmed, but in the bottom of a mine pit. Unfortunately, he's got company--a local police chief, and it looks like he's been murdered. Then too, a young woman artist living nearby has also been murdered. What're the chances that these two murders are going to be related? Well, if you're Lalla Bains, you don't guess, you start looking for the killer!


Instead of going into witness protection, the newlyweds had eagerly accepted management positions at Aunt Mae's ranch. And, in a generous moment, Pearlie had offered to familiarize Nancy and Jim with their new jobs. She could return to California and get to work on her private investigator's license—without me.
Pearlie looked up at the ceiling as if weighing the possibility that nowheresville Arizona might just be a lot more fun than Texas.
"How long do you think you'll stay out there?"
"A few days, maybe a week."
"A week? That'll work. I'll fly Gran home. Nancy and Jim can hang out with the help till I get back. You can come pick me up at the nearest airport."
Pearlie was sure she might be missing something important. Jeez, didn't she have enough excitement in the last couple of weeks?
Guess not, because the last thing she said to me before she climbed into her granny's Cessna was, "… and don't get into any trouble until I get there."

Pearlie had a really screwy idea of what was fun.
