About J. A. Menzies

While I’d hate to stumble on a real body under any circumstances, I have a thing about noticing the “perfect” locations for finding mythical bodies. In order not to waste this fascinating (and hopefully, unusual) skill, I decided to write mysteries.

I’m a member of various writers’ organizations, including Sisters in Crime and Crime Writers of Canada. I also teach workshops for writers. I especially enjoy sharing some of my secrets on developing plots. (One of my favorite reviews, from Library Journal, called me a “master of plotting.”)

First rate story, although it is over 300 pages (which I like unless it is awful) it kept me turning pages far into the night. Excellent book. I would definitely recommend it to my friends.

First chance to write a review on this book.

Excellent story line and kept me wondering "who dun it|. very reminiscent of Agatha Christie and other great mystery writers. The detailing of the players makes you really feel part of the story. The 'prying" into the lives of the players involved in the case, as well as the lives of the police makes for an interesting insight into the way the case evolves.. will definitely read again
