In the latest from the national bestselling author of Scandal at Six, Lois Meade is back to prove that when it comes to crime, appearances may be deceiving…
After a woman is discovered in the Mill House Hotel, strangled with a silver necklace beside a bag filled with faux gems, jeweler Donald Black seems like the obvious suspect. But Lois knows Donald’s wife and can’t believe her husband is a killer. Plus, Donald has an airtight alibi.
Nevertheless, Donald is no angel. He’s running a pyramid scheme, and Lois’s mother is getting sucked in. Could the murder have anything to do with his unscrupulous business?
As Inspector Cowgill and Lois hope the bling may shine a light on the killer, the discovery of a second body in the hotel may prove the key to solving the murder—if they can catch the culprit before someone else checks out.
