About this ebook

From USA Today bestselling author Leslie Langtry comes a killer summer camping trip!

In her career as a spy, Merry Wrath had her share of camping trips—from glamping in a yurt at Oktoberfest with drug lord Carlos the Armadillo to an awkward team building campout in the backyard of a Yakuza mob boss who thought “trust falls” should have lethal consequences. So when the former CIA turned Girl Scout troop leader has the opportunity to take six girls from her troop into a vast, private nature preserve in search of an abandoned scout camp, she jumps at it. The fact that she can secretly use this as a chance to meet up with another spy who has asked for her help just seems to be an added bonus.

Of course she doesn't expect to find a guy named Chad in a shallow grave. He’s still alive, at least for the moment, and he insists on accompanying them further into the woods. Merry’s contact is a no-show, but another, more dangerous colleague surprises them on the trail. And just when she thinks she might be able to handle things, the group find themselves confronted by a hostile group of senior citizen hermits.

From the strange noises in the night, to vampire ticks, and the constant fear of being invaded by Communists, everything in Merry’s world appears to be dangerously off kilter. When she’s accosted by a 200lb snapping turtle named Old Eisenhower, Merry realizes that not everything is what it appears to be. Can Merry figure out who is behind the strange occurrences before the camping trip ends up with a body count?

Mosquito Bite Murder is another zany adventure with Merry and the scouts. How does Ms. Langtry come up with these hilarious, over the top stories? I clear my schedule every time a new book releases. I know I will be laughing out loud while spending an enjoyable evening in this fascinating world. I thoroughly enjoyed my time at camp and Betty's ideas for some new badges. If you have never read one of the Merry Wrath mysteries, do so now. I am sure you will end up hooked on them just as I am!
