In this latest Mac Faraday Mystery from best-selling mystery author Lauren Carr, readers will embark on a rollercoaster adventure with old friends (including the Lovers in Crime team of Prosecutor Joshua Thornton and Homicide Detective Cameron Gates), but also meet new ones as Mac Faraday’s daughter Jessica Faraday and Joshua Thornton’s son Murphy Thornton join the team in the race to get the love birds to the altar!

With three days left to the year, Deep Creek Lake is hopping with holiday vacationers and wedding guests pouring into the Spencer Inn for Mac Faraday and Archie Monday’s huge wedding ceremony which is being touted as the social event of the year.

But droopy flowers and guests who failed to RSVP are the least of Mac’s and Archie’s problems when a professional hit squad hits Spencer Manor to send the groom, Joshua Thornton, Archie’s mother, and Gnarly running for their lives.

With time running out to the big day, Mac Faraday and Spencer’s small police force have to sort through the clues to figure out not only who has been targeted for assassination, but also who is determined to stop everything … FOREVER!

A Ray Schiller Novel

Author: Marjorie Doering

Price: FREE

GET DEAL at Amazon

A body is seated at the head of a conference table in the ACC boardroom in Minneapolis. A pearl-handled revolver is still clutched in the executive’s left hand—an entry wound in his left temple. The Board of Directors insists the company’s new president committed suicide.

Paul Davis? Suicide?

Detective Ray Schiller isn’t buying it. After twenty years of waiting to take over his late father-in-law’s company, why would Davis kill himself within twenty-four hours of succeeding? Ray knew the man from a recent case. He didn’t like Davis then or now, but he plans to see justice done all the same.

The Board and Davis’s successor are quick to answer Ray and his partner Dick Waverly’s questions, but their actions suggest they’re hiding something. Unfortunately, they’re not the only ones keeping secrets—not by a long shot.

Ray’s case and personal life both fall victim to complications, and what originally seemed to be a relatively straightforward case takes a turn that puts Ray and Waverly’s lives in serious jeopardy.
