It’s been two years since her fiance’s death. Amy Abel needs to start over. What better way for a shy, risk-averse woman to start than to sink all her savings into a travel agency specializing in adventure? Her first project is a mystery road rally through the European countryside.
At the starting line in Monte Carlo, Amy finds herself attracted to Marcus Alvarez, the most mysterious of her two dozen game-loving clients. But the rally gets off to a rocky start when an eccentric writer, the only person who knows the game’s solution, is himself murdered back in New York.
Who would kill a harmless mystery geek, and why are weird accidents beginning to happen along the way? To her horror, Amy discovers that this fictional mystery was based on a real, unsolved case, one that Marcus knows too much about. Now she has no choice but to join forces with Fanny, her domineering mother, and solve this on her own, before the killer strikes again.
This book is different then your typical mystery. Amy Abel is running a mystery road tour, where the clients sign up to figure out who committed murder. What screws this one up is when the owner Otto winds up dead and only two people on the tour know that Amy Abel and Otto’s assistant Marcus.
Add to that someone is messing up the road rally by adding false clues into the mix. This was a great book trying to figure who among the tour had an axe to grind with Georgina and wanted her dead.
Can’t wait to read more by Hy Conrad his story telling ability was awesome and I was able to read this book minus a few interruptions in 2 days! What a fun journey!
Definitely a great author, and on a side note I am a fan of both shows he’s been part of Monk, and White Collar!
