Read an Excerpt

On the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, in a jewelry television studio on Long Island, New York a young woman has been found beaten to death. Detective Angelo Zenoni and his partner, Nolan Wildow, have been called in to investigate the murder. It soon becomes clear that this will not be an open and shut case. A tense work situation, a troubled family member, an obsessive ex-boyfriend, a problematic graduate school incident, and annoyed neighbors are just a few of the suspects and scenarios involved in the murder of Tiffany Kehl.

On top of the complicated case is Angelo's home life. Christmas is soon coming, and he is being pushed by his wife to decorate the house while dealing with his wayward nineteen-year-old nephew who cannot stay out of trouble. Detective Angelo Zenoni has got his hands full!

A murder in the midst of the holiday season isn¿t exactly what Detective Angelo Zenoni has in mind when he and his partner, Wildow are lead investigators in a bludgeoning death of Tiffany Kehl, gem seller `genius¿ for the television station. Most people are shocked, but very few truly saddened by her death and more people with motive than not! It seems the only people who believe Tiffany to be kind at all are her devastated parents.Zenoni and Wildow have their work cut out for them because the mix of people to be investigated include her coworkers, protesters, neighbors, random men and even her sister! Tiffany¿s attitude and confrontational nature did nothing to endear her to the people around her and she wasn¿t shy about telling them how she felt. They have to look into arguments with her boss, her neighbor, someone egging her car and a mysterious boyfriend who may better be characterized as a stalker.While Zenoni is investigating the murder, he also has his personal life to contend with. His wife wants the Christmas decorations so she can decorate the house, now! His nephew can¿t seem to stay out of trouble. All this has to be put to the back of his mind while he tries to figure out who murdered Tiffany.This is a well written, engrossing mystery. You will be hooked from the start!Reviewed by Ashley Wintters for Suspense Magazine
