At Annie Laurance’s Death on Demand bookstore on Broward’s Rock Island, South Carolina, murder is no longer confined to the well-stocked shelves. Author Elliot Morgan’s abrupt demise during a weekly gathering of “Sunday Night Regulars,” a club of famous mystery writers, is proof that a bloody sword is sometimes mightier than a brilliant pen. With Annie in the unenviable position of primary police suspect, the pretty young mystery maven and her wealthy paramour, Max Darling, embark on an investigation of their own. Failing to unmask a brutal and ingenious killer could mean prison for Ms. Laurance. Success could mean her death.

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Warren Bull | 2/11/2014

    " Even though this is the first in the series and the author improves her efforts on later books, I still found this to be charming and innovative introduction to the series and the characters. I found she pulled me in immediately and held my attention throughout. She opened with a list of items, which sounds dull but was so well written that if captivated me. Her use of painting to reflect mysteries was original ( to me at least) and her knowledge of the field of mystery writing was impresive. "

    " Cozy mystery series. Two amateur sleuths, one of which lives in a tree house on a tiny island off the coast of South Carolina. Charming setting. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Debbie | 12/8/2013

    " It was a good book but a little too easy to figure out who the murderer was. I had it figured out within the first few chapters which kind of takes the suspense out of the book. But overall I enjoyed it. "
