Blind man’s bluff With business going stale at Zydeco Cakes, Rita Lucero has plenty to worry about. But when the blind trumpet player Old Dog Leg Magee asks for a favor, she can’t say no. His brother Monroe disappeared forty years ago, and now someone has shown up claiming to be him. Old Dog Leg needs Rita to be his eyes—and see if it’s really his brother. The Twisted Palms Bed and Breakfast is full of unsavory characters, Monroe included. Posing as newlyweds, Rita and her friend Gabriel check in, only to discover that Monroe’s true identity isn’t the only mystery they’ll have to solve. When another guest at the Twisted Palms turns up dead, it seems the mysterious man might also be a murderer...
In the still of the night… Halloween is approaching, and the co-owners of Zydeco Cakes, Rita Lucero and her former mother-in-law, Miss Frankie, have scored a sweet treat—a fantastic catering opportunity that could lead to a rich future for their bakery. But their good news is quickly rattled by a bump in the night when Miss Frankie’s neighbor, Bernice, barrels into her kitchen toting a Bible and a gun, and serves up a story about a ghost at her window. Bernice swears she just saw the ghost of her moonshiner uncle who disappeared in the swamp fifteen years ago. And when her cousin soon goes missing in the same swamp, Bernice is certain someone’s playing a nasty trick, and convinces Rita and Miss Frankie to help her investigate. They’ll just need to watch their steps, as these ladies are liable to get mired in a very swampy mystery… INCLUDES DELICIOUS RECIPES
In the fresh new Piece of Cake Mystery from the national bestselling author of Rebel Without a Cake, a pastry chef becomes embroiled in a suspicious death as a mysterious curse casts a pall over an annual New Orleans ball. Rita Lucero, co-owner of New Orleans’s Zydeco Cakes, is thrilled to be catering an annual ball held at the Monte Cristo Hotel. Designing the high-end desserts is her priority—until she stumbles upon a mystery long-buried at her shop. It’s an ornate ruby necklace, hidden underneath her staircase and rumored to be cursed. After the gem’s appraiser suddenly drops dead and Rita herself is targeted by a menacing stranger, she’s no longer laughing at local superstition. Now with five cakes on order and an investigation into the necklace’s past revealing layers of unsettling clues, Rita has reason to keep looking over her shoulder while she’s frosting. Because any way you slice it, the next victim of the legendary curse could be her.
Um einen Mordversuch an seinem getreuen Helfer, Inspektor Janvier, aufzuklären, mietet sich Maigret in der Pension der dicken, fröhlichen Mademoiselle Clément ein. Tatsächlich entdeckt er dort an einem höchst überraschenden Ort den Verdächtigen. Aber der Fall ist damit ganz und gar nicht abgeschlossen, denn im Haus gegenüber wohnt eine rätselhafte gelähmte Frau, die in die Sache verwickelt zu sein scheint...
Die Machenschaften eines dubiosen Auftraggebers zwingen Leonid McGill in das dunkle Herz Manhattans hinab. Dabei müßte der Privatdetektiv erst einmal darüber hinwegkommen, daß seine Geliebte einen Neuen hat, und verhindern, daß seine Söhne kriminell werden. Als er bei seinen Ermittlungen durch Zufall in einen Mord verwickelt wird, hat er dann aber doch ganz andere Sorgen ... Leonid McGills Familie ist alles andere als harmonisch: Seine Frau Kathrina liebt er nicht, zwei von drei Kindern sind nicht von ihm, und sein einziger leiblicher Sohn haßt ihn. Doch Harmonie ist ohnehin Leonids Sache nicht. Dafür hat er sich früher zu oft und zu lange mit den falschen Leuten eingelassen. Einer von ihnen ist Alphonse Rinaldo, der Mann, der in New York die Strippen zieht. Und auch wenn man besser vermeiden sollte, einen Auftrag von Rinaldo anzunehmen, ist es genauso wenig ratsam, einen solchen auszuschlagen. Leonid macht sich also auf die Suche nach der Frau, die dem Strippenzieher Sorgen bereitet. Und prompt findet er sich als Hauptverdächtiger in einem Mordfall wieder.
