Title: The Body in the Bed
Author: Jerold Last
The Body in the Bed is a suspenseful whodunit mystery set in exotic Montevideo, Uruguay. Murder and espionage are seamlessly mixed with the political and cultural aspects of modern day life in Uruguay. The protagonists include Los Angeles-based private detective Roger Bowman, his wife, Biochemist Suzanne Foster, and Paraguayan policeman and international spy, Eduardo Gomez. And, of course, the body in the bed, who we meet very early in the novel. Who killed him and why?
The reader will not only enjoy a good mystery, but will smell and taste (at least virtually) the local foods and wines of Uruguay, visit the local attractions of Montevideo, and learn a little history of a small corner of South America half a world away from the United States. The plot is carefully researched and based on real events occurring in today's news.
The Body in the Bed is part of the author's South American mystery series, all e-books available on-line from Amazon's Kindle Store. Each book in the series can be read on its own, in any order. The series does feature recurring characters, so you can revisit the series to find out more about what happens to the characters, at least the ones who survive to the end of this thriller!
Title: Looking for La La
Author: Ellie Campbell
Looking for La La is a chicklit mystery - a funny, entertaining rollercoaster ride about a North London wife and mother who finds herself involved in murderous goings on, while surmounting marital crises, career crises, friendship crises and everyday parental challenges.
Cathy, a bored stay at home, totally disorganized mother of two, investigates a lipstick-covered love postcard sent to her husband, Decaln. Together with best friend Raz she seeks to discover the identity of the mysterious La La as a diversion from the mounting pressures to return to work.
After that it all turns into a crazy romp - life gets increasingly complicated with all Cathy's friends and fellow mothers apparently hiding secrets, a sexy admirer igniting long-forgotten sparks, and the malicious scheming of Declan's new assistant. As things deteriorate in her marriage, Cathy quickly suspects that she is being stalked and that possibly her life is in danger.
The novel has elements of humor, romance and mystery and maybe the most interesting fact is that it was based on a true-life event.
