High Seas Murder
A Lindy Haggerty Mystery #2
August 2001 paperback
August 2000 hard cover
It sounds like a dream gig for a tired, holiday-starved rehearsal director like Lindy--a ten-day tropical cruise where several fine arts companies mingle with super-rich patrons. All Lindy has to do is stage a performance, then meet and greet with some of the biggest names in the arts--stars from the worlds of rock-and-roll, opera, dance, even Las Vegas cabaret. But the party's over when Lindy discovers that one of the guest's hidden talents might include a flair for murder.
The curtain rises on the body of one Enoch Grayson, the most feared and despised music critic ever to wield a poison pen. What secret was he about to expose that could have someone resort to cold-blooded murder? That's Lindy's cue to uncover who's moonlighting in the deadly arts.
Of course, every great first act deserves a second. After a brief intermission, another murder leads Lindy to a startling conclusion about the lies and secrets that hide behind some of the world's most dazzling smiles. Finding a killer among such seasoned performers will take some pretty fancy footwork. But there's a very dangerous star in the house--one who knows all of Lindy's moves, and is set on staying one step ahead of her . . .
