Someone’s trying to write characters out of the script in this suspenseful crossword puzzler featuring PI Rosco Polycrates and crossword editor Belle Graham
Belle Graham is mired in New England’s snowy, late-January gloom when Hollywood comes calling. Seduced by visions of relaxing poolside in sunny Los Angeles, she heads to Hollywood to create a puzzle for a TV movie based on a crime she and her husband, Rosco Polycrates, recently cracked. The hook is that the show is interactive—viewers get to solve the crime on air with Belle.
The trouble starts when Belle discovers that someone has replaced her crossword with a brand-new set of clues. Then a series of suspicious accidents culminates in murder. In a case in which everyone’s under suspicion—and all are harboring secrets—the backstage backstabbing is heating up to a fever pitch. Now Rosco’s jetting out to La-La Land to help Belle sort out the clues while the truth is still in development and a killer could make this show a done deal.
This ebook includes six crossword puzzles that contain clues to solving the mystery and can be downloaded as PDFs, with answers in the back of the book.
