Making Murder and Mayhem, Mystery Style.
Arlene Kay's book Intrusion has protagonist Elisabeth Buckley out to find the killer of her good friend, even though she's still smarting over the loss of her husband. She's caught up in Boston's biotech industry and there are plenty of suspects, including a man who is either the killer or the second love of her life, or both. Arlene keeps you guessing right to the end.
J.E. Seymour wrote Lead Poisoning, an exciting twist on crime novels. Or maybe it's a twist on family novels (if there is such a thing) since this is about a hit man who is living a simple family life in New Hampshire while retired. Well, not so simple, since he's on the lamb for a hit he didn't make. Life is mighty complicated and the mob has a lousy retirement plan.
Both writers are from New England and both books are published by Mainly Murder Press. Try 'em, you'll like 'em.
