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!
