Hey, it’s Rey . . . offering the first promotional post re Forever Poi, the fourth mystery in our Triple Threat Investigation Agency series. Today through December 13th you can get the book for $0.99 (I’d say that’s a major bargain, and I love those!)
This one has us pretty private eyes—Cousin Jilly (JJ), my BFF Linda, and me—solving a double-arson and murder. We have to discover who torched two Chinatown art galleries and left two charred bodies in the rubble. Not an easy task, for sure!
Are the torch and killer the same person? We tend to think so. The day before the fire, Carlos Kawena, one of the arson victims, had a real nasty break-up with his partner, James-Henri Ossature. There were financial issues, too. Maybe James-Henri did the dastardly deed to collect insurance and be rid of his lover. The second victim, Mary-Louise Crabtree, was a former queenpin. Given that woman’s dicey past, maybe someone she riled in past could have flown over to have revenge. If so, it’s possible Carlos was collateral damage.
We’re hired by insurance adjuster Xavier Shillingford—a real cutie, I might add—to assist in the investigation and it soon becomes pretty obvious that professional arsonists had nothing to do with this fatal fire. We quiz a lot of curious characters as we determine who’s who, and it seems that any one of them could be our culprit.
Interestingly enough, Mary-Louise had changed her name (again) and become an artist manager. Her new life seemed on the up-and-up, but not long after she bites the bullet, a promising new client, Bizz Waxx, also ends up murdered. Why? Did he learn something about her—like maybe she was involved in something illegal? There’s also James-Henri’s beautiful—and mysterious—half-sister, Cholla Poniard, who also has ties to the art world. As an FYI, two of her “celebrity” divorces ended with ugly consequences for the exes—and both affirm that multi-talented Cholla is a dangerous woman who has her way, at any cost.
