When young attorney Becky Balwin hires Cora Felton to accompany her to New York City to meet a new client in his penthouse apartment, the Puzzle Lady jumps at the chance. Cora is just coming off a bad breakup, and finding out that Chief Harper testified at a parole hearing for a killer she helped put away has her feeling old. But when she and Becky arrive at the apartment, they find the man is dead. There's a puzzle on his chest, and a prowler is searching the bedroom. Cora pulls her gun and gets off a shot as the intruder ducks out the window. The NYPD now think Cora is the murderer. Getting her off should be a breeze for Becky, but when the fatal bullet is too badly damaged to identify, Cora is lucky to get out on bail.

Meanwhile, a diabolical killer is leaving puzzle clues. If only they were just sudoku puzzles-Cora can't solve the crosswords without the help of her niece, Sherry, who's back in Bakerhaven taking care of her toddler. In order to clear her name, Cora must match wits with a gruff NYPD homicide sergeant who is quite attractive, except for the fact that he suspects her of murder.

NYPD Puzzle is a clever mystery, boasting madcap hijinks as well as fun puzzles. Mystery readers will thoroughly enjoy this latest from acclaimed author Parnell Hall.

Charlie Davies is not really qualified to solve a murder. She’s not really qualified to do anything, unless it involves publicly embarrassing herself. She’s great at that.

Now you can catch up on her mystery-solving antics in one value-packed, binge-worthy boxset! 

“Delightful unpredictable mystery…that makes you laugh out loud.” - Cassidy Salem, mystery author

Losing Your Head:

When Charlie's high-school nemesis, James McKenzie, is accused of his uncle's murder, he jokingly offers Charlie twenty thousand dollars and a house if she can clear his name. Charlie (like one of life's true winners) still lives with her parents, and decides to take him up on the deal. What's the worst that could happen, right? 

Oh yes, she actually thought that. 

Unfinished Sentence:

Charlie's boss, the less-than-friendly Adam Baxter, has information that a local club owner is actually an escaped foreign criminal. Adam wouldn't normally ask Charlie to help him (she's not exactly his star employee), but she happens to have an 'in' - her friend is dating the man in question. 

Graceless:

When a little girl goes missing, Charlie is convinced that both the police and her boss are looking in the wrong place. She joins off-duty cop James McKenzie in a secret investigation into the clues everyone else seems to be overlooking: a threatening balloon, pink flowers and a lost piglet. As if that wasn’t enough, Charlie finds herself wondering about McKenzie’s real motives for spending time with her. And when more details of her brother’s disappearance come to light, she’s not sure whose side James is on…

What other readers are saying…

“Australian Veronica Mars”

"Great stories, lots of action, and a fun heroine."

“a perfect snark to sweet ratio"

“Loved the characters and the story line kept me turning the pages but not wanting the book to end.”

"Charlie is so spunky and just gets the job done no matter what. You can't help but cheer her on, even during her clumsy moments. And the boys? Well let me put it this way, I'd love to be in her shoes…"
