Killer Twist (A Ghostwriter Mystery Book 1)

More cutting edge than your average 'cozy', more contemporary than the likes of Sue Grafton, KILLER TWIST is the first mystery featuring amateur sleuth Roxy Parker.

With her witty one-liners and penchant for cheap plonk, Roxy Parker is a hip new detective, except she’s not strictly a detective. She's a ghostwriter with a taste for the morbid—and this time her little sideline has got her in way over her head…

In the first of six stand-alone mysteries, Roxy is hired to ghostwrite the life story of department store heiress Beatrice Musgrave. Beattie has promised Roxy a secret worth writing about, but before she gets the chance to 'tell all', the socialite is found ripped to shreds at the bottom of a cliff. The police suspect suicide but Roxy knows better—there's far too many people looking far too relieved. Besides, Beattie would never destroy a perfectly good twinset and pearls!

So what was the heiress really hiding beneath her cashmere cardi…?

From the posh suburbs of Sydney to remote outback Australia, Roxy finds herself lured into a web of deceit where time has healed no wounds and the bandages are unravelling fast. With a menacing stranger at her heels and a handsome friend hiding a secret of his own, Roxy knows she has to act fast, if only to stop her mother from driving her ballistic.

A thoroughly modern murder mystery, Killer Twist is a humorous, light read with a killer twist at the end.

From the author of the Amazon best-selling Agatha Christie Book Club and Murder on The Orient (SS).

A WARNING FROM C.A. LARMER: "This book is set in Australia so it contains some adult language and Australian slang—both part of the richness of the Aussie lexicon. No offence is intended."
