A DEAD RED CADILLAC (1st in the Dead Red Mystery Series)
When her vintage Cadillac is found tail-fins up in a nearby lake, the police ask Lalla Bains why an elderly widowed piano teacher, who couldn’t possibly see beyond the hood ornament, is found strapped in the driver’s seat.
A DEAD RED HEART (2nd in the Dead Red Mystery Series) When a troubled, homeless veteran covers her vintage Cadillac with paper snowflakes, Lalla decides a showdown is needed, but that doesn’t mean she wants the man to drop dead at her feet—with a pair of blue handled scissors sticking out of his chest.
A DEAD RED OLEANDER: (3rd in the Dead Red Mystery Series):Her beloved great aunt wants to barbecue dad’s side-kick, Bruce the goat, her man-hungry cousin has her sights set on her top pilot, and her new hire is really a CPA hiding from a vicious Las Vegas hitman. Then things really start to get messy.

***See What Readers are saying:
A Dead Red Cadillac: “This book was an amazing fast paced read and had me hooked from chapter one! Lalla Bains, Ex Model and now Ag Pilot for her dad’s company is realistic, likable, strong, wise-cracking sleuth!” Holly Newhouse Guidry “LovesBooks”
A Dead Red Heart: “As suspect by suspect convinces you one way and then the other this highly intense mystery killing will keep you on the edge of your seat…Author R.P. Dahlke will skillfully toss you around like a rag doll with evidence hitting you on every turn.” Valerie Caraotta (TOP 1000 REVIEWER)
A Dead Red Oleander: “Janet Evanovich meets aero-ag pilots.” The Kindle Book Review
A Dangerous Harbor: “If you love the sea and pirates you will absolutely enjoy this tale. I read it in two days and it was full off seafaring adventure.” Meredith Stanfield
Hurricane Hole: “I’ve read every novel published by R.P. Dahlke. Although I have loved each one, I find “Hurricane Hole” to be the best one yet. I love the way the author made me feel like I was actually south of the border myself, living on a well-appointed sailboat. The details about the sailing world were engaging without being boring. The characters come to life, and not always the life you expect them to live. There was just enough romance to appeal to the softie in me, without over-shadowing the exciting – and intriguing – murder/suspense/thriller storyline: Gail M. Hall

I write humorous mysteries about an annoyingly tenacious tall, blonde and beautiful, ex-model turned crop-duster who, to quote Lalla Bains, says: “I’ve been married so many times they oughta revoke my license.” I wanted to give readers a peek at a not so-perfect -life of a woman who is not afraid of chipping her manicure because she 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.
Beginning with A Dead Red Alibi, Lalla and her family will reside in South East Arizona where she will divide her time between a fledgling P.I. business with cousin, Pearlie Bains, and volunteering as a team member with Cochise County Search and Rescue.
Biography for A Hurricane Hole and A Dangerous Harbor
These books are the result of my years sailing in Mexico with my husband aboard our cutter rigged Hylas 47 sailboat. Mexico is a culture that was, and still is, struggling to gain a foothold in the 21st Century. Starting with A Dangerous Harbor, and continuing with Hurricane Hole, these books are about Americans who’re here because they can’t seem to outrun the problems they so desperately want to leave behind.
