“Death in the Gilded Cage” Cover Reveal

My new Jake Curtis / Vanessa Malone Mystery “Death in the Gilded Cage” is days away from being published. The final cover is shown below.

“Death in the Gilded Cage” is the story of ruthless greed and the determination by a solitary woman and her unknown partner to achieve their prize. No deed is too outrageous for them to use in the pursuit of their goal.

The story is told from the viewpoint of the killer through her diary entries and our illustrious private investigator and his lawyer wife.

Death in the Gilded Cage is paved to keep, you the reader, on the edge of your seat.

As a reminder, the best way to thank an author after reading their works is to leave a nice review and mention the work to your friends.

WITH A CLEARED MIND, “DEATH IN THE EMBASSY” HAS BEEN PUBLISHED

 

How do you prove that something did not happen? How do you prove a negative? This monumental task faced Jake Curtis and Vanessa Malone as they try to prove their beautiful client didn’t poison her ex-husband who dropped dead at her feet at a gala in the Italian Embassy in Washington, D.C. If the ex-wife didn’t do it, then who did? Was it his daughter who stood to inherit his wealth? Was it one of his two mistresses he was engaged to marry? The ex-husband is not the only person murdered in this love rectangle.

The private investigator Isabella hired to look into the possibility of Alberto’s unfaithfulness found out Alberto had not only one mistress, but that he had two mistresses, both of whom claim to be his fiancee. When the PI told Isabella about Alberto’s cheating on her, she blocked him her mind and heart as she went to Reno, Nevada to obtain her divorce and returned back to DC three weeks before ex-husband Alberto’s death.

Through interviews with Isabella’s daughter and Isabella’s closest friends, Jake and Vanessa determined Isabella didn’t have the opportunity to administer the poison to Alberto during the day. It was Isabella’s nights that proved to be more of a problem.

Isabella’s Jewish mother suggested that if Jake and Vanessa couldn’t prove Isabella didn’t meet Alberto at night, then prove Alberto didn’t meet Isabella during the night. Jake and Vanessa confronted Alberto’s two mistresses.

Jake and Vanessa’s investigation led them to a pair of biker bars, a shootout, subterfuge by a waitress, culminating in the chase of an escaped murderer through a busy detective squad room.
