It's been a bad week for successful writers. A science-fiction author has been found dead, violently slashed with an ‘X’, a gardening guru bludgeoned with his own shears, and an erotic novelist poisoned by a juicy, red apple. All the evidence is pointing firmly at Oliver Horowitz, Roxy Parker's beloved agent, but the ghostwriter believes he's being framed.
With the help of alluring newcomer, investigative reporter David Lone, Roxy sets off on a quest to prove Oliver's innocence and track down the killer before another author meets their final sentence...
The third book in the best-selling Ghostwriter Mystery series sees the return of Roxy’s quirky friends and family including brooding photographer Max Farrell (how will he handle Roxy’s new love interest?), meddling mother, Lorraine, Scottish softie Lockie, and supercop Gilda Maltin. We also meet Max's cool sister Caroline and join Roxy on a nail-biting road trip up the north coast of Australia, the killer hot on her trail!
In C.A. Larmer's fifth book, and the third in the popular Ghostwriter Mystery series, we see yet again why Larmer is fast becoming Australia's number one cozy crime writer. There's suspense, humor, fashion and fun, not to mention a plot that will keep you on the edge of your manicured toes!
