A Staged Murder by Jo A. Hiestand | Blog Tour with Exclusive Excerpt and Giveaway

The Blurb

Bonfire Night! The four hundred-year-old tradition of burning the straw effigy is beginning in Upper Kingsleigh, England. The torch extends… But it’s no mock figure at the end of the rope; it’s the body of a man, an American tourist. Brenna Taylor, Derbyshire C.I.D., is assigned to the case on a team of detectives under Detective-Chief Inspector Geoffrey Graham. It is the chance Brenna has been waiting for, and she is anxious to impress him.

Most villagers suspect an outsider as the killer. But when the frost-covered body of a resident is discovered, apprehension shifts and suspects multiply. Among them are the American's brother-in-law, still angry over his sister's death; the husband, who fears his wife will desert him for the American; the inebriated, penniless uncle, who clings to his nephew's fortune tighter than a cork in a wine bottle. Then Brenna becomes the target of a series of frightening pranks — the work of a harassing male colleague, or a deadly warning to leave the case? Her hunt is personal now.

A Staged Murder is the newly rewritten/edited edition of Death of an Ordinary Guy
(A Taylor & Graham Mystery #1), first published in 2004.
