The antics of seven inheritance recipients during a week-long stay at a haunted Connecticut estate are detailed by Jill Jocasta Fonne. The will of a deceased relative, wacky Aunt Mat, stipulates that if anyone leaves early, his or her share will be divided among those remaining. As it happens, one does leave-permanently-when he dies hours after arrival. Disappearing corpses, hidden passageways, and ghoulish pranks have Jill and best friends, Rey and Linda, seeking clues as to the person responsible for the mysterious goings-on. Others soon join in the sleuthing, and the bumbling and stumbling-and mayhem-begin.

About the Author
Tyler Colins is a writer of fiction and blog posts, and a sometimes editor and proofreader of books, manuals, and film/television scripts. Fact-checking and researching, organizing and coordinating are skills and joys (she likes playing detective and developing structure). She aims to provide readers with smiles and chuckles like the ever-talented Janet Evanovich and the sadly passed and missed Lawrence Sanders, the "coziness" of Jessica Fletcher, and a few diversions and distractions as only long-time pros Jonathan Kellerman and Kathy Reichs can craft.

My first thought when reading THE CONNECTICUT CORPSE CAPER is that it was a cross between the movies, Clue and House on Haunted Hill. You know, rambling, haunted mansion, weird, creepy butler, a cast of characters very different from each other all there to get a piece of a fortune. As I continued to read, the Clue description is the one that stuck closer to the story. Author Tyler Collins inserts a lot of humor and more than one body into this tale, and her style of writing makes for a fast read. Before I knew it, I was at the end of this whodunit, and surprised with who had done it. I think you’ll find this a fun read. Along with the two movies I mentioned above, THE CONNECTICUT CORPSE CAPER also takes on a Charlie’s Angels feel that will certainly be the set up for the future books in the Triple Threat Mysteries.
