New to You Book: Comic Mystery – Evil Genius and a PRIZE!

March 7, 2014

Welcome to Patricia Rice, author of Evil Genius, today’s New to You Book pick!

What is your book about? Evil Genius, comic mystery

Call her a petite princess or a paranoid neurotic, either way, Anastasia Devlin has the instincts of a chameleon. She can disappear into the woodwork, share tea with a queen, or flatten a thug with one swift kick, but what she really wants is to provide her dysfunctional younger siblings with the security of the home she’s been denied. Instead, she discovers her grandfather has died without the family being notified, his mansion has been usurped by a stranger who never leaves the third floor, and her grandfather’s executor has absconded to the Caribbean with the proceeds of their inheritance. If murder hasn’t already been committed, she might perpetrate one herself—starting with the annoying spy in the attic. To avoid murder, she makes a pact with the devil who apparently now owns the home she is determined to win back.  While she searches for the absconding lawyer and the real murderer of the senator’s aide, she will help their landlord locate a mysterious Cambodian—until oddly, the threads of all three mysteries begin to twine together, and someone is intent on cutting the cord before Ana comes too close to finding the answers

    It should be fun to see how she gets the third floor interloper out. I love the idea of a “comic mystery”.
