Here it is! The gorgeous cover of The Silence of Memory, number three in the Roger and Bess mysteries! Ashley Lopez has done it again, with her beautiful cover design, so evocative of the village of Old Harbor and its craggy relationship with the sea. If all goes well, the publication date is Tuesday, September 29th. I will keep you posted!
I am already drafting book four, with Bess at the center, Roger and his team not far behind. Thank you for telling your friends about the books, reading and reviewing them and most of all, for your amazing support and kindness! I wish you a joyful, relaxing Labor Day weekend. xoxo ML
The Silence of Memory
Once again the quiet, seaside village of Old Harbor is shaken by a series of murders. Someone is killing members of a women’s mystery book club and all clues lead back to lothario, Dennis Harrison, who appears to have slept with half the women within a ten-mile radius. When a child goes missing and a woman’s body is found in the woods zipped into a golf bag belonging to Harrison, Roger Demaris, head of RHD, an elite regional homicide team, is yanked from his honeymoon to investigate.
As newlyweds Roger and Bess move into their new house and anticipate the arrival of his children for a visit, RHD races to find a killer before he or she strikes again. Then, another member of the book club is killed, a third viciously attacked, and two villagers vanish. Will Roger, Pete, Greta and Brendan find them in time or has a stealthy predator slipped the noose again?
Join Demaris, Bess, and the gang as this third Roger and Bess Mystery speeds towards its breathless conclusion!
