A South Carolina bookseller falls victim to a murder plot in the Agatha and Anthony Award-winning author’s smalltown mystery.
Solving puzzles comes naturally to mystery bookstore owner Annie Darling. But it doesn’t take a genius to realize she needs help around the shop. Between book club members, fussy authors, and curious readers, Death on Demand is one of the busiest storefronts on the island of Broward’s Rock.
Former legal secretary Pat Merridew proves more than capable. When she doesn’t show up for work one day, she has an excellent excuse—she’s dead. While the police rule it a suicide, Annie smells foul play. But as Annie and her husband Max dig into their latest true crime, someone is planning a killer sequel.
