About this product
- DescriptionMiss Cora Felton, the eccentric amateur detective better kwn as the Puzzle Lady, likes thing better than to solve a good mystery-and this time she's got a killer on her hands. What isn't puzzling is why critics agree that Cora is emerging as a lovable and unique sleuth ( Chicago Sun-Times ) in a fun series for mystery fans and cruciverbalists ( USA Today ). Bakerhaven, Connecticut, seems like the ideal place to host a charity crossword-puzzle tournament-after all, the town is home to Cora Felton, the beloved puzzle columnist kwn as the Puzzle Lady. A slew of celebrity contestants are on the way. And the locals have been invited to challenge the veteran puzzlers head-on. But soon the town's attention is fixated on something far more controversial than crosswords...when the body of the town tart is discovered lying dead on her kitchen floor. Before anyone can stop her, Cora is hot on the trail of the truth, interviewing sy neighbors, digging up dirt, and drawing out a lonely recluse who just may hold the key to cracking the crime. But will she solve the case before the contest comes to a deadly end? Cora once again proves that sleuthing spells S-U-S-P-E-N-S-E-up, across, and down!
