Angelica Gospel Hall Member Murdered, Local P.I. Suspected in Fallen Angels, a Historical Cozy Mystery from Alice Duncan
--1926, Los Angeles, CA--
Mercy Allcutt has had exciting times as secretary to private investigator, Ernie Templeton. While it’s true she’s been in what she considers a wee bit of trouble--Ernie considers out-and-out danger--a time or two, she’s determined to continue learning the ways of the “real” world.
However, when she sets out to find her wandering boss, Ernie, one hot September afternoon, she not only discovers a corpse, she also finds Ernie, bound and gagged. Even worse, when the police arrive to investigate the crime, they peg Ernie as the killer.
Mercy isn’t about to let the police get away with that, no matter how many times Ernie tells her to butt out of the case. The only question is whether she’ll survive her investigatory efforts before she becomes one more “Fallen Angel.”

Another exciting adventure in the life of Mercy Allcut PI assistant/secretary. When Mercy sets out to find her wayward boss Ernie she instead finds the dead body of the client he was meeting and Ernie trussed up. When the police seem laser focused on blaming Ernie and Ernie seems to have given up Mercy is determined to find out who the real killer is.
A wonderful and well written mystery. Lots of twists and turns. Definitely enjoyed this latest installment and am eagerly awaiting the next.
