“Murder on the Mountain” is available for pre-order!

Murder on the Mountain400x600Coming August 22nd!

When Jesse Morales, a recent college grad who aspires to be a mystery writer, volunteers to work on the summit of Mt. Washington for a week, he expects to work hard. What he doesn’t expect is to find a corpse in the fog, lying among the rocks, his head crushed. The dead man turns out to be a young tourist named Stuart Warren, who strayed from his friends while visiting the mountain.

Kyle Dubois, a widowed state police detective, is called to the scene in the middle of the night, along with his partner, Wesley Roberts. Kyle and Jesse are instantly drawn to one another, except Jesse’s fascination with murder mysteries makes it difficult for Kyle to take the young man seriously. But Jesse finds a way to make himself invaluable to the detective by checking into the hotel where the victim’s friends and family are staying and infiltrating their circle. Soon, he is learning things that could very well solve the case—or get him killed.

This is my first “traditional” murder mystery.  Murderous Requiem had murders in it, but they didn’t occur at the beginning, and the main characters weren’t directly trying to solve the crime—they had other things on their minds.  But Murder on the Mountain is a “who-dunnit,” in which a body is discovered and the suspects are all gathered in a hotel for a week while Kyle and Jesse try to solve the mystery.

It was a very challenging story to write, and I spent forever going over the nit-picky details in the novel.  It was a lot of fun, though, and I hope people love it, because I have a burning desire to set Kyle and Jesse off on a new case soon!

  1. Hooray! Congrats on the upcoming release. I look forward to it.

    Murderous Requiem is my favorite of the three books of yours I’ve read (Billy’s Bones and Screwups were also 5 star reads for me, but Murderous Requiem was my favorite because of the music and the magick).

    I’ve exceeded my book budget for the month but will order it next month, most likely. it’s not on Goodreads yet but I’m sure it will be soon.

    Reblogged this on F.E. Feeley Jr. and commented:
    This dude is a hell of a writer. I had the good fortune to beta this book. A hell of a story, twisted characters, plot twists, craziness, romance, and Redrum…..REDRUM…if whodunits is your schtick or if you just like good literature, this is the book for you!

  3. Where’s mine? 😉 It looks great,
    Jamie!
