Internationally Best-Selling Author of Murder Mystery Novels

Crimes Past


"Crimes Past is an excellent murder mystery novel from start to finish that leaves you on the edge of your seat. .. I loved how just when you think you know who the murder suspect may be, a new twist is added that leaves you questioning everything you already know. I literally could not put this book down, I had to read it in one go, it was that good. It was well planned out and developed with such intensity that you did not want to part with it. It is a definite must read from this talented writer! " Review by Working Mommy Journal

 "I'm always amazed at how Carr keeps all the different plot threads straight and then brings it all together in the end. I did guess who one of the killers was and I enjoyed trying to figure it all out. There were also some laugh-out-loud moments for me. If you like murder mysteries with an entertaining cast, I suggest you pick up one of Lauren Carr's mystery books. They are all stand-alone novels but are addictive so that you will want to read the next book, and the next, and the next after that... " Review by Laura Fabiani, Library of Clean Reads

"First I loved it and another 5 stars for Lauren Carr. " Review by My Reading Journeys

"The pace is quick and the tension is palpable."  Review by Christa Reads and Writes


It’s a bittersweet reunion for Mac Faraday when members of his former homicide squad arrive at the Spencer Inn. While it is sweet to attend the wedding of a late colleague’s daughter, it is a bitter reminder that the mother of the bride had been the victim of a double homicide.

The brutal slaying weighing heavy on his mind, Mac is anxious to explore every avenue for a break in the cold case—even a suggestion from disgraced former detective Louis Gannon that one of their former friends is the killer.

When the investigator is brutally slain, Mac Faraday rips open the cold case with a ruthless determination to reveal which of his friends is a cold-blooded murderer.
