When acclaimed ethnomusicologist, Dr. Archibald Finley Dawson arrives at Twombly College for the Midwest Anthropological Studies Society conference, he's swaggering over his recent bestseller; "The Devil's Music: Murder and Mayhem in Western Folk Music". He is the star of the conference, but jealousy taints the air.
Emory Crawford and her husband, chemistry professor and forensic scientist Dr. Jebbin Crawford, join their friend Archibald to entertain the attendees with bluegrass murder ballads following the opening banquet. But their good mood changes when Emory and Jebbin are strolling home and come across Dawson's body.
He has been strangled with his own fiddle strings.
Jebbin, with his colleague Dr. Nibodh "Chatty" Chatterjee, work night and day on the forensics while Emory wonders about graduate student Naomi's relationship to the murdered man and what caused the friction between Dr. Dawson and Dr. Timothy Law?
When Timothy is found murdered, the pressure rises, and Emory's 'Miss Marple' like ways are put to the test to figure out what is going on before the killer strikes again.

About the Author

Slightly quirky, always creative, Pearl R. Meaker has been an artist, singer and craftsperson her whole life. Although she's always had stories in her head, they didn't come out to play with others until the advent of home computers with their ease of making corrections and moving bits around.

After several years of writing fanfiction in the world of Tolkien's Middle-Earth, she took a couple of writing courses and dove into writing original works of fiction, and The Can Be Mysteries were born.

When not playing with story ideas, you can find Pearl playing with yarn - either knitting or crocheting, doing other arts and crafts, bird watching and photographing nature, playing bluegrass fiddle (her husband plays banjo), or relaxing with her hubby on the sofa watching mystery shows on Netflix.

Oh - and reading all sorts of books, but especially cozy and other types of mysteries!

The books in The Can Be Mysteries Series are reminiscent of Agatha Christie's Miss Marple mysteries, which is why Pearl has chosen to characterize her stories as "Murder Genteel."
