Murder moves into the neighborhood in this witty and suspenseful crossword mystery featuring husband-and-wife sleuth team Belle Graham and Rosco Polycrates
Belle Graham and her canine bodyguards, Kit and Gabby, are enjoying their daily outing in the local dog park with new friends Karen Tacete, her daughter Lily, and their dog Bear. But Karen’s picture-perfect life shatters when her husband, Dan, fails to return home. He’s barely been declared officially missing when Karen receives a ransom note that includes a dire warning: If she contacts the police or the FBI, Dan dies.
Who would kidnap the popular dentist against whom no one ever had a cross word? That’s what Belle and her husband, PI Rosco Polycrates, need to find out. When the Tacete abduction escalates to murder, Belle and Rosco realize the solution may lie in the baffling nursery rhyme–themed crosswords Belle has been receiving. As they dig into the life of Newcastle’s most charitable DDS, they soon find themselves up to their eyeteeth in danger, racing to fill in the blanks of a plan orchestrated by someone out to make a killing.
