Publisher's Summary

What's an eight-letter word for killjoy? Find out in this devilishly clever crossword mystery featuring husband-and-wife sleuth team Belle Graham and Rosco Polycrates.

Belle Graham hears it first from the gossip columnist for the Evening Crier, where Belle is resident crossword editor. Fire has destroyed one of the stables at King Wenstarin Farms - the multimillion-dollar corporation owned by the notorious Collins clan - and the barn manager lies in a coma. Did someone torch the place? That's what Belle's PI husband Rosco Polycrates has been hired to find out.

Former Prohibition - era bootleggers, the Collinses live in a mansion that is more Newport, Rhode Island, than Newcastle, Massachusetts. Todd Collins, the 74-year-old patriarch, is currently married to much-younger wife number three, his three children's horsey stepmom from hell. But the family's infamous infighting is about to morph into a nasty case of murder.

With a media circus heating up, a second homicide rocks the New England town. Now Belle has to solve some cryptic brainteasers before she becomes the next victim of a killer ready to ride off into the sunset... after burying Belle six feet down - and three across.

This audiobook includes six crossword puzzles that can be downloaded as PDFs, with answers in the back of the book.
