Take a trip to Sea Pine Island this summer where the wealthy get wacky and someone always gets killed. WHACK JOB, Kendel Lynn’s anticipated follow-up to the Agatha-nominated BOARD STIFF, is a page-turning puzzler with punchy characters and a snappy wit. Slap on your best bucket hat because Elliott Lisbon’s latest adventure hits shelves May 13, 2014.
When Elliott Lisbon blends her directorship of the Ballantyne Foundation with her PI-in-Training status by planning parties and performing discreet inquiries for charitable patrons. But when the annual Wonderland Tea Party makes everyone go mad as a hatter, Elli gets pulled into a shooting, a swindle, and the hung for a Faberge egg.
From seedy pawn parlors to creepy antique shops, Sea Pine Island’s other half prove to be as wacky as the wealthy. As Elli falls farther down the rabbit hole, she finds a scheming salesman, a possessive paramour, a dead donor–in fact, the only thing missing is a bottle labeled “Drink Me.” As events evolve from curious to crazy, Elli gets lost in the maze and finds herself trapped in a house of cards with a killer.
