Sweet Smell of Sucrets

4

From the author of This Doesn't Happen In The Movies, a Readers' Favorite Finalist in Mystery, join Reed Ferguson on another harrowing crime caper!

In a nightmarish turn of events, Reed finds himself the prime suspect in the murder of Denver private investigator Noel Farrell.  Wrongly accused but unable to provide a convincing alibi, Reed has to work overtime to clear his own name.  As Reed untangles a complex trail of clues, he learns that Farrell had discovered something much more disturbing than the usual, run-of-the-mill PI case and had attempted to contact Reed for help.  Unfortunately, whoever murdered Farrell wants Reed dead, too.  But can Reed find the killers before they get to him?

Filled with the usual dose of film noir and humor, the eighth book in this acclaimed mystery series brings back all of Reed’s cohorts, including girlfriend Willie, Cal, and the Goofball Brothers.


Praise for the acclaimed first novel in the Reed Ferguson mystery series, THIS DOESN'T HAPPEN IN THE MOVIES:

Kirkus Reviews:
The promising kickoff to Pawlish's comic mystery series, starring far-from-perfect PI Reed Ferguson. Pawlish earns high marks for plot construction, with twists and turns naturally unfolding as Ferguson, inexperienced but not incapable, feels his way through the case. A good-humored mystery series worth following.

Readers' Favorite:
This is one witty, hilarious private detective story that will keep the reader glued to the pages until the very end.

5 Star Review
There is little doubt that Renée Pawlish is a promising new voice to the comic murder mystery genre. Quite noticeable...is Pawlish's adept development of the plot coupled with her ability to contrive clear, concise and playful prose with almost perfect pacing.
