Unusual Suspects

Uniquely Troubling Grift of Elizabeth Holmes and Theranos

Hi mystery fans! Before I get to muuuuurder I thought you might like to know that there’s a new podcast, Kidlit These Days, hosted by New York Times bestselling author Karina Glaser and children’s librarian Matthew Winner. Yay!

Design on Murder cover imageWhen Amanda decides to lease a space in historic Abingdon, Virginia’s Shops On Main, she’s surprised to learn that she has a resident ghost. But soon Maxine “Max”, a young woman who died in 1930, isn’t the only dead person at the retail complex. Mark, a web designer who rented space at Shops On Main, is shot in his office. Amanda is afraid that one of her new “friends” is a killer, and Max is encouraging her to solve Mark’s murder a la Nancy Drew. Easy for Max to want to investigate–she can’t end up the killer’s next victim!
