Death Can Delight: A Trio of Mysteries
Joseph Amiel, author
3 murderous mysteries! 3 mystifying murders! These short stories contain the wit, drama, complexity, and surprises that characterize author Joseph Amiel's novels. In "The Girl Who Spoke Ventriloquism", a U.S. army vet intent on killing a man who committed a vicious crime meets an enchanting violinist performing in a Killarney pub. She can't speak but, oh, does he get an earful from her talkative friends! Next stop for both of them: Ireland's Charlie Chaplin Comedy Film Festival. "Judgement Day" centers on Kyra and P.B., teenage girls raised by lesbian moms who have been a couple all the girls' lives—until P.B.'s mom walks out with her to marry a man! And not just any man, the one everyone in town would kill if they could. But some things should be kept in the family. In "Deadline Divorce" a billionaire divorces his wife just before the expiration of their pre-nuptial agreement, cutting her off without a cent. When he dies without a will and she is no longer entitled to inherit his estate, her hustling lawyer swings into action. He hasn't got a clue.
