Death in the Abstract: A Katherine Sullivan Mystery Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
Retired police chief Katherine Sullivan moved away from Edina, Minnesota, to feed her artistic soul in New Mexico. But when she receives an urgent call, her serenity is shattered. Nathan Walker, her best friend and former colleague from her days on the police force, is missing and his crew of security experts hasn't seen him in days. Now it's up to Katherine to fly home and track him down.
Meanwhile, Edina is reeling from the murder of a local woman, which looks more and more like it could have a connection to Nathan's disappearance. And as Katherine digs deeper into the investigation, locating Nathan's abandoned car and compiling a list of potential kidnappers, another body is found - and Katherine fears time is running out for her friend.
Finding herself reluctantly pulled into a new case, Katherine must set aside her artistic pursuits and tear herself away from her darling grandchildren in order to save her best friend in Death in the Abstract, the compelling sequel to Emily Barnes' The Fine Art of Murder.

Katherine is the former chief of police for Edina and the current chief is a little jealous and a lot insecure when she is around. He is also busy trying to solve the murder of a family friend which is consuming his attention. He almost doesn't have time to pay attention to another body that seems like the victim of a hit-and-run.
Katherine and Nathan's employees begin by backtracking the appointments he kept on the last day anyone saw him. Katherine meets a number of quirky, or suspicious, characters as she looks for her friend. Among them are Mr. and Mrs. Larkin who are living in the middle of a construction zone and interested in more security for their home. She also meets Ashley Knight who is a person of interest because she connects with the Larkins and Nathan.
While Katherine worries and searches for her friend, she is also spending time with her grandchildren and her daughter's ex-husband. I like her relationship with her grandchildren and like that she is coming to better terms with her daughter's ex-husband.
This was an entertaining cozy with a nicely complex plot and some really quirky characters.
It was Rosie, one of Nathan's employees, on the other end. They were calling Katherine to tell her Nathan was missing !! The last time they spoke to their boss was on Friday.....3 days ago. They needed help anad they knew Katherine would be there as soon as possible to help find him.
Interesting tidbit of information....Nathan owned a security and survelliance business since leaving the force.
As soon as Katherine got into town, her focus was on finding Nathan. She even had to play nice with the current Chief of Police who wasn't a fan of her's. A missing person was not a priority to him when they had a murder and a killer to catch. Katherine worked with Nathan's crew going through files and re-visiting the appointments he had on Friday.
After meeting with Nathan's appointments, Katherine isn't left with much to go on. One residence from that day doesn't feel right so she returns with one of the crew. When they find the door ajar, they venture inside just in time to see someone running out the back door. They also hear banging coming from upstairs. When they investigate they find Nathan gagged and tied up !!!
Unfortunately that isn't the end !! As they continue to investigate why Nathan was kidnapped in the first place, another person is killed. Does that have anything to do with Nathan's kidnapping or the other death ?
Emily Barnes introduces the reader to an assortment of characters and storylines that twist and turn and possibly all end up at the same place. In Death in the Abstract you will find yourself drawn into the story and your heart rate may speed up at times....but its all good. Trust me you'll see !!!
