And Darrell James discusses his mystery
In Scot and Soda, Scottish-born California transplant Lexy Campbell sails again when a body is found during her houseboat Halloween party. The smart choice is to leave it up to the cops to identify the body and catch the killer. Lexy and company make a different choice, and they're on the case before you could say "Tam O'Shanter," delving deep into the roots of this mystifying crime.
NPR says, “Catriona McPherson hooks you with her eccentric amateur sleuth, reinvigorating the exhausted conventions of the cozy- style mystery.”
