Killing Krause: A novel
Rachel Black, a divorced literary agent, accompanies an eccentric, best-selling mystery writer, Ann Charlotte, to a literary awards dinner given on a cruise ship. Surrounded by self-serving characters, humorously recognizable in the publishing industry as editors, writers, and their agents, Rachel soon finds herself trying to unravel another murder mystery, although this one's not a plot from a client's manuscript. A renowned mystery writer, and Anne Charlotte's long-time nemesis, is murdered on the night of the awards.
Rachel suddenly finds use for her previous experiences as a homicide detective and, with the help of the ship's handsome security chief, tries to solve the puzzle-only each clue serves to expose yet another passenger's hidden skeletons of love, greed, and desire for fame.
Funny and wonderfully crafted, Killing Krause will keep you guessing till the end.
