Up to Noir Good

Author: Jan Fields Narrator: Ann Richardson Release Date: August 2019

A heat wave grips Cape Cod, but the attendees of the So Noir literary retreat don't allow the hot weather to dampen their enthusiasm. They roam the halls of Castleton Manor in Lighthouse Bay, Massachusetts, wearing trench coats and fedoras, just like their favorite fictional private eyes. Librarian Faith Newberry gets herself in a jam when she agrees to deliver a lecture about the detective code. It's not exactly duck soup to grab the audience's attention, but Watson, her devoted feline companion, listens attentively. He realizes that he's the quintessential hard-boiled detective because he's smart and tough and always saving hapless humans. When Oscar North, chef and local restaurant owner, falls from the balcony and dies, Watson gets his first case. Oscar's death is rumored to be a homicide, and chaos breaks out at Castleton. The joint's lousy with wannabe gumshoes, and they launch their own investigation into who bumped off the chef. Meanwhile, Oscar's widow knocks Faith for a loop by begging her to find her husband's killer. As Watson sniffs out clues, Faith presses the suspects for information. But they clam up, and it's difficult to discern who's on the square. Then Faith becomes a target, and it's noir or never to solve this case. Will the two sleuths drop a dime on the crook before the murderer can scram?

Untimely Death: A Shakespeare in the Catskills Mystery

Author: Elizabeth J. Duncan Narrator: Sarah Nichols, Sarah Nicholson Release Date: November 2015

This witty and wise work is the first in Elizabeth J. Duncan’s charming new mystery series. A Catskills resort’s production of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet takes a wickedly ironic turn when the leading lady, Lauren Richmond, is first poisoned and then stabbed. Who would extinguish the life of such a beautiful young thespian? It seems like just about everyone had a motive to pull the ropes on her final curtain call. At the center of this Shakespearean tragedy is Charlotte Fairfax, formerly the costume mistress of the Royal Shakespeare Company. Upstate New York is a long way from the royal stage, but Charlotte is always the queen of her domain. As this small production’s costume designer, she has stitched her way into everyone’s lives, learning more than anyone could possibly imagine about the rise and fall of Lauren Richmond. “In a departure from Wales and her Penny Brannigan series, Duncan introduces a charming new sleuth and plenty of quirky characters sure to appeal to her base and to cozy fans in general.”—Kirkus Reviews
