Take One Leggy Police Detective, Mix in a Puzzling Murder Investigation, Blend with Warm Florida Keys Waters for a Delicious Treat

Charlie Hudson, avid scuba diver and military veteran, brings her easy style and quick dialogue to create an intriguing story of death, power and a search for answers among people who prefer to paint the truth in shades other than black and white.

Homestead, FL, November 01, 2005 --(PR.com)-- Think John D. McDonald crossed with Sue Grafton and you have Charlie Hudson’s new novel, Shades of Truth. Police Detective Bev Henderson, a second generation cop, surfaces from diving among Florida’s underwater joys back onto land with dead bodies, sex, lies and a mother who nags her about her unmarried state. A man who would seem the least likely of assailants is dead, a young woman is missing and charismatic State Senator Warren Randall appears to have more involvement than he’s willing to admit. While a fast track politician with a secret to hide isn’t exactly unique in mysteries, the characters portrayed are realistic – they could be your neighbors, friends or enemies. Shades of Truth rings with plausibility and the twist at the end is worth waiting for.

With 22 years as an Army officer, to include serving in Desert Storm and Operation Uphold Democracy in Haiti, Charlie Hudson knows how to portray an independent woman in a predominantly male world. “I love to write and to dive,” she says. “What can be better than combining the two?”

Hudson’s career in the Army Ordnance Corps took her around the United States, to Germany, Italy, and Hawaii as well as to the Persian Gulf and Haiti. She and her husband, also an Army Officer, recently left Puerto Rico to settle in South Florida. Her previous novels and her non-fiction, The Parent’s Guide to Business Travel, are posted on her website, http://charliehudson.net.
