Mystery Amateur Sleuth
Agatha Award-winning author G. M. Malliet has charmed
mystery lovers, cozy fans, and Agatha Christie devotees with
her critically acclaimed mysteries featuring handsome
spy-turned-cleric Max Tudor.
In The Haunted Season, Max’s former life as an MI5
agent caught up with him, threatening his newfound happiness
with Awena and baby son Owen. Realizing there is no escape
from his past, Max, with his bishop’s tacit permission, has
offered his services to MI5 on an as-needed basis.
And in Devil’s Breath, it’s time for Max to follow
through. The body of glamorous film star Margot Browne has
washed ashore from a luxury yacht and Max’s former colleague
Patrice Logan wants his help to find the murderer.
It’s a perfect “closed circle” murder since victim Margot
must have been killed by one of the actors, stylists,
screenwriters, or second-tier royalty aboard. Patrice
suspects the yacht’s owner, a playboy film director she’s
been keeping tabs on for smuggling, but Max isn’t so sure.
Max and DCI Cotton interview the suspects as they loll about
one of the luxury hotels dotting the waterfront. The
investigation into Margot’s lurid past uncovers a host of
motives—it seems she was not the only person on board with a
secret they’d kill to keep.
