This suspenseful thriller with an historical subplot is a perfect read for lovers of maritime cozy mysteries with a twist. The charming, quiet coastal setting of a quaint maritime village on Lake Ontario makes a perfect backdrop and counterpoint for the shocking murder that occurs right under the nose of the criminal consultant who is hired by the police to solve this crime.
Read this thrilling tale of murder and deceit and join Ed and his wife, Annie, as they discover a map dated 1785 in the basement of the local museum. The discovery leads them to Toronto, Canada and a manuscript found at an archaeological dig, written post-Revolutionary War. The pieces of the puzzle are coming together, and the clues to whodunit are everywhere. But will they find them?
While this clean fiction novel contains no graphic violence, explicit intimate scenes, or cursing, there's plenty of action, adventure, and a surprise ending.
Annie enjoys cooking, and the book also offers gourmet recipes she prepares for friends and family as the hunt goes on to discover hidden secrets rooted in history that help the couple discover who committed this shocking murder.
Stay tuned for more Ed and Annie adventures as they investigate the death of Ed's childhood friend in Murder in the Cemetery
BIOGRAPHY I entered the world of fiction writing late in life; in fact my first book of the Edmund DeCleryk Mystery series wasn't published until I was 71. Prior to that I worked as a non-profit executive, editor, publicist, journalist and teacher. I also spent many years as a volunteer-leader with non-profit organizations.
