Product Description

Fruitcakes never die…but people do!

As Christmas 1946 draws near, thirty-something marine
officer-turned-homicide detective Lane Walker has his hands full.
Three men with seemingly no relationship to each other have been
murdered, including the powerful District Attorney. The only connection
between the crimes? The weapons: twenty-year-old unopened fruitcake tins
manufactured by a company that is no longer in business.

While some foods may be to die for, fruitcake isn't one of them! This
heaping helping of murder will be no easy task for Walker, and he
certainly doesn't need the determined and feisty Tiffany Clayton, the
political reporter for The Chicago Star, getting in the way.

Employing witty dialogue and historical accuracy, The Fruitcake Murders offers equal parts murder, mystery, and mayhem in a perplexing whodunit set in the days just after World War II.

Fruitcakes never die…but people do!

It’s December 1946 and The Chicago Star political reporter, Tiffany Clayton, is looking for a scoop on the murders of three men. The District Attorney was one of the victims which makes the murders big news, especially since each man was killed with the same weapon: twenty-year-old unopened fruitcake tins manufactured by a company that is no longer in business. Tiffany is determined to get to the bottom of this sensational story.

A feisty reporter is the last thing ex-Marine officer and Homicide Detective Lane Walker needs. He’s got his hands full trying to crack the case with so little to go on. There’s got to be something the murders have in common besides the wacky murder weapon. Some foods are to die for, but fruitcake isn’t one of them. Employing witty dialogue, historical accuracy, and characters with spiritual sensibilities, The Fruitcake Murders offers equal parts murder, mystery, and mayhem in a perplexing whodunit set in the days just after World War II.
