My mystery novel The Marinara Murders is live in the Kindle store for just $2.99! You can read it on your Kindle, iPad, iPhone, Android, or desktop computer.

Mary designed a great cover for it:


This is the basic story:

A grown man living in his mother’s basement, disgraced detective Arthur Beautyman knows his life has fallen off a cliff. But that doesn’t mean he has to be happy about his mother’s solution to his woes: volunteering him to solve a case for her favorite bridge partner. Oh, and to make matters worse, she wants to be his partner on the case as well …

It’s set in Minneapolis in the week before Thanksgiving. Tacoma readers will find a lot to appreciate, too, as the inspiration for the book was drawn from the real world of Tacoma in 2002, when the City purchased Bimbo’s of Tacoma to make way for a new convention center.

For those who read The Saints Go Dying, this book is set four months later, but in no way do you have to have read that book to get what’s going on in The Marinara Murders.

I will confess to being particularly proud of this book. I think it turned out closer to my original vision for it than a lot of past projects, and that’s a very happy thing for an author.

I hope you will check it out!
