LET'S GET COZY! FINAL SAIL: A PREVIEW AND GIVEAWAY

GIVEAWAY ENDED 
FINAL SAIL
A Dead-End Job Mystery
BY ELAINE VIETS
ABOUT THE BOOK:
Husband and wife PI team Helen Hawthorne and Phil Sagemont each have their hands full, but only Helen has to carry drink trays—as part of her latest undercover assignment....

To catch a jewel smuggler on a luxury yacht, Helen is posing as the ship’s new stewardess. But between serving drinks and scrubbing floors, she’s starting to miss dry land almost as much as she misses Phil.

Meanwhile, Phil is trying to catch a sexy gold digger who may have killed her elderly husband. Good thing Phil is a master of disguise, playing it cool as everything from an air-conditioning repairman to a Rastafarian. Helen and Phil help each other out whenever possible, but when Helen’s on her own on the high seas, she needs to watch her step—or she may wind up going from undercover to overboard....

AN EXCERPT FROM FINAL SAIL:
“That woman is murdering my father,” Violet Zerling said. “We’re sitting here while he’s dying. And you – you’re letting her get away with it.”

Violet Zerling jabbed an accusing finger at attorney Nancie Hays. Violet was no delicate flower. She was twice the size of the slender lawyer and obviously upset.

Nancie wasn’t intimidated by the large woman. The lawyer was barely five feet tall, a hundred pounds, and thirty years old, but tough and adept at handling difficult people. She had faced down – and successfully sued – a slipshod homicide detective and the small South Florida city that employed him. She’d fought to keep an innocent woman out of jail. Now she didn’t back away from Violet.

Nancie was all business, and so was her office.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Elaine Viets, the author of four acclaimed mysteries for Dell and several works of nonfiction, is a board member of Mystery Writers of America and former president of the Florida chapter. She is also a board member of Sisters In Crime. A St. Louis native, Viets was a popular syndicated columnist for the St. Louis Post Dispatch and won several Emmys for her local "Viets Beat" TV show. She now lives with her husband of thirty-one years in Hollywood, Florida, where she collects speeding tickets and writes full time. She is also currently slaving away at Barnes & Noble for $6.75 an hour as research for her next Dead-End Job Mystery.

For her short stories this year (2009), she's had "Death of a Condo Commando" published in Alfred Hitchcock in May and "The Bedroom Door" was selected by blind judging for the Charlaine Harris MWA anthology, "CRIMES BY MOONLIGHT," out in April 2010.
