Cryptic demises of two accountants who are related to each other hound a small town and send two of its residents into the pursuit of the truth behind the killings.
Jack McCormac mixes humour and mystery in Fetching Fiona and the Sketching Detective Solve the Crisscross Murders, ditching old creepy-enigmatic formula usually fused in the genre. Set in the town of Bonnie Glen, in time for Halloween, married couple Jack and Fiona MacKay are inadvertently tasked to investigate on the deaths of two prominent locals, banking on their knack for observation and analysis.
The couple struggle to figure out pieces of the truth as they encounter all sorts of persons positioned to have the slightest connection to the murders, and while doing so, discover more about their marriage and why their tandem works.
Twist after twist, McCormac’s writing does not fail to entertain his readers as each chapter turns out to be full of detailed innuendos and charming repartees.
