NEW SERIES: Five strangers compete to solve an Impossible Mystery. There're millions at stake and two weeks to do it.
Police say the case is open-and-shut. The heir to a massive fortune, Heath Burlington, slaughters his parents, calls and confesses to the crimes, then turns the gun on himself. Heath's grandfather says, "Not so fast." With the case now closed, the wealthy mogul assembles his own crack team of detectives—five amateur sleuths with a nose for mystery and a need to prove themselves—then pits them against each other to solve it.
THE IMPOSSIBLE MISSION: "Prove Heath's innocence and you get $1 million each. The sleuth who makes the biggest breakthrough scores a bonus million. The sleuth who does the least gets nothing." They have just two weeks.
INTRODUCING: THE SLEUTHS OF LAST RESORT
Cluedo champ Merry (she can read a crime scene like no other);
Reckless PI Kila (his rule-breaking is just what this case requires);
Bestselling crime author Martin (he wrote the book on Locked Room Mysteries);
Dinosaur ex-detective Earle (he crosses his Ts but has the contacts);
Fearless crime reporter Frankie (she knows the case inside out. Or thought she did…)
AND SO THE ADVENTURE BEGINS… As the story twists from Sydney’s clifftop mega-mansions to the shadowy Snowy Mountains and back, the sleuths must learn to work together—and to their skill-set—to solve the mystery and face their own demons before their time runs out.
From the best-selling author comes an exciting new series for fans of fun, fast-paced whodunnits.

About the Author
Christina (C.A.) Larmer tried writing a romance at the age of 13 but pretty soon she'd slaughtered the hero and planted it on the heroine. It was the beginning of a beautiful love affair that has now resulted in four crime series, including the Murder Mystery Book Club, the Sleuths of Last Resort, the Ghostwriter mysteries, the Posthumous Mystery series, a domestic suspense novel, and a stand-alone mystery masquerading as a family saga (she's fooling nobody).
Born and bred in Papua New Guinea, Christina has lived and worked around the world from New York and Los Angeles to London and Sydney. A journalist, editor, teacher and mentor, she now runs an indie publishing business from the east coast of Australia, where she lives with her musician husband, two sons, a devilish 'Bluey' and countless koalas and snakes, none of which come close to the villains in her books. Well, maybe just the Bluey...
