Mystery Historical

Fans of Rhys Bowen will be abuzz over Amanda Allenís second installment in her bold Santa Fe Revival mysteries.

The on-set murder of a famous Jazz Age film director unearths a hornetís nest of passion, duplicity, naked ambition, and bitter revenge.

The golden age of cinema is dawning, and Santa Fe is in the grip of movie fever when director Luther Bishop arrives for the filming of his new cowboy flick. Maddie Vaughn-Alwinís cousin Gwen Astor is in town with a bit part in the movieóbut Gwen finds herself caught in a whirlwind of mischief before shooting even begins. But the plot only thickens when the detestable director is found hanging in his office.

When it comes to light that Gwen was having a torrid affair with Luther, she gets pegged as the prime suspect, much to Maddieís dismay. But Maddie, quick on her feet with ever the keen eye knows that Luther had his fair share of enemies, and thereís no shortage of contenders. Lutherís widowed wife Bridget finally assumes her late husbandís most-coveted directorís chair, head of wardrobe Lorelei Fontaine is bitterly denied a role by Luther she was once promised, and original leading man Harry Kelly was summarily fired by Luther just upon arriving at Santa Fe.

Desperate to prove Gwenís innocence, Maddie begins an investigation, but every clue reveals another motiveóand could point to another murderóin A Moment in Crime, the second engaging whodunit in Amanda Allenís enchanting Santa Fe Revival mysteries.
