Demise of a Devious Suspect

By Elaine L. Orr

Crime & mystery | Paperback, eBook


Life for Melanie seems to have returned to normal. She works as a gardener with friend Stooper, eats at Mason's Diner, and sits on her farmhouse porch with friends Syl and Sandi. Her biggest challenge is helping Mr. Tibbs get used to the still-unnamed black cat that sauntered into the household. And then she finds a body in the coat closet at the Farm Bureau dinner. The local grain operator had angered farmers with increased prices, but who kills for an extra few cents per bushel of corn? Tired of fingers pointing toward her and curious about why someone burned some of her late father's files, Mel does some poking on her own. The kidnapping of a local woman raises the stakes. With pets who have a nose for trouble, Melanie seeks a devious suspect. And, it seems, the suspect wants her to stop the hunt.



Elaine L. Orr authors three mystery series, including the eleven-book Jolie Gentil cozy mystery series, set at the Jersey shore. Behind the Walls was a finalist for the 2014 Chanticleer Mystery and Mayhem Awards. The first book in Elaine's three-book River’s Edge cozy mystery series, From Newsprint to Footprints, debuted in late fall 2015, followed by Demise of a Devious Neighbor (a Chanticleer finalist in 2017). Tip a Hat to Murder was the first in the Logland mystery series. Set in small-town Illinois, it retains a cozy feel but the protagonist is a police chief rather than an amateur sleuth. The second book, Final Cycle, will be out in late 2018.
