Cozy Mystery 5th in Series
Publisher: Henery Press (May 23, 2017)
Paperback: 234 pages
ISBN-13: 978-1635112115

Ellison Russell wanted a decorator, not a corpse. Too bad she finds Mrs. White in the study killed with a revolver. Things go from bad to worse when she finds Mr. White in the dining room killed with a candlestick. With so many bodies, is it any wonder Detective Anarchy Jones’ new partner considers Ellison a suspect?
With the country club gossips talking a mile a minute, an unexpected cocktail party, a visit from Aunt Sis, and a romantic decision, Ellison hardly has time to think about murder. Unfortunately, the killer has plenty of time to think about her.

Character Guest Post
Sally Markum crossed her ankles and donned a smile that invited secrets.
The man across from her sipped his coffee, seemingly more interested in the activity in the studio than her.
“We’re on in five.” The call came from the darkness.
Four, three, two…
Sally adjusted her posture and turned up the wattage of her smile. “I’m Sally Markum and this is Kansas City Tonight. We’re on with Detective Anarchy Jones of the Kansas City Police Department. Detective Jones, your first name is somewhat unusual. How did your parents come to select such a unique moniker?”
The man across from her leaned back in his chair. “My father is a politics professor at UC Berkley. My mother is an artist.” He smiled. “I’m just glad they didn’t name me Hemp.”
That smile. Sally resisted the urge to fan herself. “A politics professor at Berkley? How does he feel about your chosen profession?”
“We don’t discuss it.”
The sudden chill in the room had nothing to do with the temperature.
Sally shifted in her seat and smoothed the skirt stretched across her lap.
“I thought you had questions about the Michaels case.” Detective Jones’ killer smile was fifty degrees cooler now.
Don’t discuss family. She got the message. Loud and clear.
“Of course. Please—” she nodded to the main camera “—tell our viewers about the Laurie Michaels murder. How can they help catch a killer?”
“Anyone with information is urged to call the police department.”
Sally swallowed. “A confidential source tells me that local socialite Ellison Russell is embroiled in the investigation. Can you confirm that for our viewers?”
Icicles formed on the camera equipment. “No comment.”
“My source says that—”
Anarchy’s eyes narrowed. “No comment.”
The detective wanted to discuss Ellison Russell even less than he wanted to talk about his father. Message received. “Do you have a suspect?”
“The police department is actively pursuing all leads.”
Sally shifted in her chair. When she’d seen the detective, she’d formulated a plan. A plan that included a chummy interview, drinks after the cameras quit rolling, and then…The plan wasn’t working. There was nothing chummy about their exchange and Detective Jones seemed oblivious to the deep vee of her blouse and the length of her toned legs. “What else can you tell our viewers, Detective Jones?”
“Avoid getting locked in freezers.” He sounded deadly serious.
Sally squeaked. Squeaked. They’d have to edit that out. “Excellent advice.”
