If mysteries were coffee, I’d offer everything from light to dark roast and even a specialty blend (my action-adventure series). This month is a perfect demonstration of this as you’ll find cozies, police procedurals, and an FBI thriller.
So pick out the perfect “cup” for you and settle into your favorite reading chair, savor and enjoy.
Light Roast ☕
Sean and Sara can’t turn their backs on their benefactor’s last wish that they investigate a murder. But it’s not going to be that straightforward. They no longer have their detective badges, and the police have already closed the case as a suicide. Of course, their benefactor never agreed with the finding, and they owe it to him to find the truth—and they will—because this murder-solving duo has never backed down from a challenge.
The media is fascinated by Sean and Sara’s story, and it seems the secret is out that they solve murders on the sly. The fact that they retired their badges doesn’t seem to bother the mayor when his daughter goes missing. He seems to think Sean and Sara will get answers faster than the local police, but this is going to take some finesse if they don’t want to step on the toes of their friends in the Albany PD, including their former sergeant.
Sean and Sara’s first case as private investigators takes them to Virginia, where they find themselves going undercover at a coffee company with a robust plot to expose a killer who may be poisoning the beans.
Medium Roast ☕
Madison Knight is one hard-boiled female detective, so when a case she’s working turns into a hunt for a serial killer, nothing’s going to stop her, not even mounting pressure from her superiors or a distracted partner. She’ll go it alone if she has to.
Her fellow officer has made the ultimate sacrifice, and Detective Madison Knight may have to lay it all on the line to bring his killer to justice. But with leads pointing in several directions, she has to narrow them down—and quickly—if she’s going to solve the case before anyone else gets hurt, including herself.
Dark Roast ☕
FBI agent and profiler Brandon Fisher and his team are called to Savannah, Georgia, when body parts belonging to three separate victims are recovered from the Little Ogeechee River. As the case takes one dark turn after another, Brandon finds himself embroiled in a creepy psychological nightmare.
