A Little Murder by Cindy Davis

The first in a brand new mystery series set at Lake Winnipesaukee, NH!

When a fishing trip hooks more than a few trout, ER nurse Angie Deacon and her husband find themselves unexpected suspects in a murder investigation. Who amongst the other five aboard Little One could have had a vendetta against the boat's owner—especially one strong enough to see Nolan Little dead? Will Angie live to regret her decision to aid Nolan's aggrieved wife once she learns the woman harbors secrets of her own? Untruths aren't the only cause for alarm as the lethal pieces of the puzzle start to fall into place, leaving Angie wondering just exactly how her husband fit into the deadly equation…and if she is next on the killer's list.

A Little Murder received high accolades from award winning Sisters in Crime members:

    Action packed… engaging… will keep your light on deep into the night.
              --Nancy Means Wright, Agatha Award 2006 Best Children's/YA Novel

              --Gary Braver, award-winning author of Skin Deep.

    …bad checks, blackmail, kidnapping, murder… a complex plot and a shifty cast of characters make this a memorable read.

    Fine writing and a strong sense of place make A Little Murder a most satisfying read.
              --Kate Flora, Edgar-nominated author of Finding Amy: A True Story of Murder in Maine.
...and other readers:
    A Little Murder, by Cindy Davis was a fantastic read! I loved the plot of the murder and couldn't wait to keep reading. It was the best book I've read in a long time. Ms. Davis really has a knack for analogies! Her choice of words is very clever and I love the way she switched back and forth from the different characters. There was never a dull moment in this book. I can't wait to read more of her books!
              --Rebecca George, Fourth Grade Teacher

    Davis takes what looks to be a simple murder mystery and adds enough twists and turns to produce a real whodunit readers will be challenged to figure out. Characters are solidly developed and dimensional, the plot fast-paced and peppered with suspense.
              --Christy Tillery French

Book Two, Play with Fire, is slated for a November release.
