About the Carolyn Neville Mysteries

Carolyn’s a lovably acerbic Manhattan book editor. She and her colleague Stephen Ames face danger as they try to preserve Western civilization one adverb at a time. If you enjoy Horace Rumpole, Monk, and Stephanie Plum, you’ll like this unique blend of suspense and humor.

Book One: Murder Most Annoying

Carolyn and Stephen investigate charges that their top self-help author’s bestselling memoir is a fake. They find themselves on the suspect list, dodging more bullets than most people in their profession encounter in a lifetime.

Book Two: Murder Most Irritating

Trying to squeeze a book out of a whistleblowing researcher, Carolyn and Stephen face a shady drug company, a vindictive police chief, the county jail, and a mysterious figure who’s on their trail.

Book Three: Murder Most Maddening

When Carolyn’s old friend and mentor Marvin Ainsley Pitts, true-crime author, is assaulted and left in a coma, she and Stephen investigate. A small mountain mining town is the setting as they encounter an unsolved murder case, hostile locals, and a literal trial by fire.
