Sum It Up! Mary Barton weaves an interesting mystery full of twist and turns.


In death, they are purified. Holding his victims under water, he washes away their sins as they struggle for their last breath. Then he stakes their bodies to the ground, exposing them for what they really are. Witches, sent to tempt and to corrupt.

No one knows about defense attorney Charlotte Wellington's murdered sister, or about her childhood spent with the carnival that's just arrived in town. For Charlotte, what's past is past.

But others don't agree. And as a madman's body count rises, she and Detective Daniel Rokov are drawn into a mission that's become terrifyingly personal. (Goodreads)
Hiding her secret past allowed Charlotte Wellington to become a well-known defense attorney. However, secrets have a way of coming out when one least expects it. Charlotte grew up, with her sister, in a carnival doing readings for customers. When her sister is brutally murdered, Charlotte leaves the carnival and her secret life behind.  Her two worlds come crashing down when her stepfather, Grady, arrives in town with the carnival asking for Charlotte’s help.
Detective Daniel Rokov and his colleagues are working a case that shocks the most harden detectives. The brutality of this serial killer has links, unknown to Daniel at the time, to Charlotte’s sister.  His tenacity to find the truth leads him to the carnival and his on again off again relationship with Charlotte.  Daniel must make a hard decision, delve into the past of the woman he loves to find the serial killer or trust her to tell him the truth.
Mary Barton weaves an interesting mystery full of twist and turns. Although some of the twist were a bit contrived and rushed, the back-story on Charlotte is enough to keep the reader interested. The story is a page-turner; yet, the characters seem to run together leaving the reader wondering which character Burton was referring.  Overall, Before She Dies is a worthwhile read, which mystery fans can enjoy.
