Whitewash in the Berkshires


This is to announce my latest novel in the Double V Mysteries series - WHITEWASH IN THE BERKSHIRES.

Juliet Van Allen and Elmer Vartanian, the Hartford, Connecticut-based amateur sleuths are off in the fourth adventure in the series.  This time they shuttle between Hartford and the Berkshires of western Massachusetts in the bleak midwinter of 1951:

  An incident from Juliet's past puts her on a blacklist.  A priceless work of art brings her to a secret bunker.  A kidnapping and a threat to her life result in a desperate chase.  How does all this fit in with the unidentified corpse?  Elmer has no idea, but he's right behind her.  The partnership of the wealthy heiress and the ex-con continues in this fourth book in the Double V Mysteries series.
The cover art was done by Casey Koester, who also writes the blog: Noir Girl - Adventures of a '40s Girl in a Modern World.

Casey has done the first three covers in this series for me in a unique style that is whimsical, playful, and I think somewhat haunting.  I'm a great admirer of her work. 
The book will launch Friday, February 5th, but is available now on pre-order for Amazon.  It will be out in eBook and print.
