Croaked: an Edgar Rowdey Cape Cod Mystery

Boom-Books

"Everything I want in a mystery...a plot that keeps you turning pages, terrific dialog.... I enjoyed every minute of it."

Cape Cod! To Lydia Vivaldi, the quaint seaside village of Quansett looks like sanctuary -- until she learns her one friend here is dead. How could an expert Fix-It Chick fall off a ladder at a film shoot? When Lydia lands a soup-chef job at Leo's Back End, she starts asking questions. Gossip and recollections from the locals -- a hippie bookstore clerk, an ex-police photographer, a Wampanoag pastry chef, a pair of Broadway musical composers -- reveal some dark secrets behind those white picket fences. Still Lydia's stonewalled by the flirtatious filmmaker and warned off by the police. Only Edgar Rowdey, famous artist-author of creepy little storybooks, shares her doubts about the "accident." Can this unlikely pair of detectives find out what really happened before it happens again?
