QUICK WALK TO MURDER The Second Jessie Murphy Mystery by jd daniels / Released Dec 2015
Brace yourself for an “electrifying and page-turning” read where zany, Thrift Store Fashion Queen Jessie Murphy once again proves that artists can master the art of deductive reasoning. She may trip. She may skip. She may even get lip from an inanimate object. But, in the end, she nips the killer.
Gifted college student, Tomas Moore, is the son of a crusty Pine Island crab fisherman and a Mexican homemaker who often seeks psychic guidance. When the young man is found murdered, his parents and the locals fear the law will not place a high priority on solving his death.
It is up to Jessie Murphy to find the killer. Is it another crabber? A rejected lover? His rich girlfriend? Her brother? Two cagey fisherman? Or, his college roommate?
Ties that bind. Rivalries of the heart. Threat of collapse to an island’s livelihood. As Jessie tries to unravel the mystery of this promising young islander’s murder she finds herself in a heart-stopping race against time in which honesty and love are tested, greed is rampant, and no one – including Jessie – is safe.
