Trouble Down Mexico Way
Trouble has a way of finding Blanche Murninghan...
When Blanche “Bang” Murninghan visits an exhibit of ancient Mayan ruins in Mexico City, she sees that all is not ancient. One of the mummies has a pink hair clip embedded in its haylike do, and the texture of the skin is not quite right.
Blanche, a part-time journalist, starts to dig for answers and gets tangled in the mystery of the mummy at the Palacio Nacional.Her cousin and traveling companion, Haasi Hakla, aids and abets and puts the reins on Blanche. All the while, the two eat and drink their way across the city, following one hunch after another with a cast of colorful characters that include a prescient elderly chilanga, an amiable overworked detective, and a stunning doctor of shady deeds.
The cousins are willing to risk kidnapping and attempted murder to get at the truth, but first, Blanche stops for another excellent beer and Haasi delights in one more taco al pastor.
Trouble Down Mexico Way is the second book in the Blanche Murninghan cozy mystery series. Each of the books can be read as a stand-alone. Foreword Reviews is in love with the "spunky heroine" and Kirkus Reviews says, "There's a reason Blanche Murninghan's cousin Jack calls her 'Bang.' When she gets mad, it's an event to rival a Santa Maria Island sunset and it happens about as often."
Fans of Jana Deleon's Miss Fortune Mystery series and Tonya Kappes A Camper and Criminals Cozy series will fall hard for the colorful characters and exciting misadventures in the Blanche Murningnan Mysteries.
