SIX WRITERS. FIVE DETECTIVES. FOUR DAYS. THREE WEAPONS. TWO MURDERS. ONE TRAIN . . .

When the Australian Mystery Writers’ Society invited me to their crime-writing festival aboard the Ghan, the famous train between Darwin and Adelaide, I was hoping for some inspiration for my second book. Fiction, this time: I needed a break from real people killing each other. Obviously, that didn’t pan out.

The program is a who’s who of crime writing royalty:

the debut writer (me!)
the forensic science writer
the blockbuster writer
the legal thriller writer
the literary writer
the psychological suspense writer.

But when one of us is murdered, six authors quickly turn into five detectives. Together, we should know how to solve a crime.

Or commit one . . .

But how do you catch a killer, when all your suspects know how to get away with murder?

And this novel in “The Maid” series…

DO NOT DISTURB. WHODUNNIT IN PROGRESS …

Molly the maid sees everything at The Regency Grand Hotel.

So when a renowned guest drops very dead on the tearoom floor, sullying the hotel’s five-star reputation, it falls to Molly to sweep up the clues.

An unfortunate accident? Or a murderous mess?

The answers to the mystery lie behind one guest’s door – and only Molly the maid holds the key…
