LET'S GET COZY: SKETCH A FALLING STAR - A PREVIEW AND GIVEAWAY

 
 GIVEAWAY ENDED 
SKETCH A FALLING STAR
A Portrait of Crime Mystery
BY SHARON PAPE

ABOUT THE BOOK: 
When the “Way Off Broadway Players” get swept up in a flash flood while sightseeing in Arizona, Rory McCain’s aunt Helene and her fellow amateur thespians survive—with the exception of Preston Wright.

The victim was actually a womanizing scam-artist who duped nearly everyone in the troupe, as well as an ex-con who operated under various aliases. While Preston’s death was deemed to be an “act of nature,” Rory can’t discount the possibility that human nature may have contributed to his drowning.

But even as she investigates the cast of characters to find out which one played the villain, Rory is finally on the verge of solving a cold case -- the murder of her ghost partner, Zeke.


ABOUT THE AUTHOR:                       
My first novel, GHOSTFIRE, was condensed in Redbook magazine (the first paperback original the magazine had ever condensed.) Then came THE GOD CHILDREN and THE PORTAL. Redbook also published my first short story, which was subsequently sold to several foreign magazines. "A Portrait of Murder" is my new mystery series for Berkley Prime Crime. The second book in the series, TO SKETCH A THIEF, is in stores now. I hope you enjoy reading about sketch artist Rory McCain and federal marshal Zeke Drummond. I'm having a great time telling their story.

With an off broadway group, I am assuming that the cast will be more theatrical than regular people and that may mean that some interesting characters for this book.

P.S. The buzz is that this one is a page turner.
