SMFS list member S. A. Stolinsky’s new mystery is Woe in Weyburn. Published by Artemis Publishing Company, the read is available in print and eBook from Amazon.
Introducing the newest series by the creator of the hugely successful Counterfeit Lottery books. A sympathetic, but seemingly dependent protagonist; a dead American Indian actor who turns out to be Italian; a small-town rife with corruption; and a set of characters, all looking guilty—what could go wrong? Don't miss the first of the three novels featuring crime photographer Meggie Monahan, by award-winning author S. A. Stolinsky. Everyone thinks crime photographer Meggie Monahan is back home in Weyburn, Massachusetts to rebuild her father’s playhouse—until the dead body of an American Indian crashes through the playhouse’s door in the middle of winter. Then the tables turn: Could she really be the link between hundreds of dead undocumented sex-slave workers and the local mob, hoping to help her husband take over the action? After a deadly fire that demolishes the playhouse, the kidnapping of her sister, and the passionate love of an ex-police detective, no one is sure of anything except that Meggie is uncovering way too much, way too fast. The fatalities are inexplicable—no motives, a knife as a murder weapon, and no suspects. Could one person really be responsible for all these unthinkable crimes? Meggie intends to find out—if she lives to tell the tale.
