Pack your designer luggage, we're heading to Europe for the fifth, fast-paced adventure in the popular Ghostwriter Mystery Series, WORDS CAN KILL!
This time we're on a missing person's case, and it ain't no holiday. Hunky photographer Max Farrell has vanished into thin air, last seen in the arms of a blonde floozy at a Swiss mountain resort, and his best mate, Roxy Parker, is feigning nonchalance. But when Max's flatmate shows up murdered, followed soon after by the floozy, Roxy realises Max’s life is hanging in the balance, and she is his only hope.
Where is Max? Who killed his Berlin flatmate? And what the hell was he doing with that blonde floozy in the first place?!
In the latest Ghostwriter Mystery (each one a stand-alone story in itself), Roxy heads to Europe with Max's self-absorbed sister, Caroline. Together, they follow a series of tantalising clues that take them from the heights of Mt Pilatus to the azure Mediterranean Sea encountering brash German police, secretive Swiss soldiers, and an Italian Lothario with evil in his heart.
Move over Sue Grafton, C.A. Larmer's latest mystery proves yet again why she is one of the most exciting cozy mystery authors writing for contemporary women today.
