Why read the The Gumboot & Gumshoe Series?
Because everyone needs a laugh!
If you love satire and black comedies or are fans of Fargo, Twin Peaks, Murder She Wrote or Miss Marple, then The Gumboot & Gumshoe Series is for you. What started with Gumboots, Gumshoes, & Murder, is followed up by The Dastardly Mr. Deeds and Murder Most Fowl in this delightful trio of cozy mysteries with a distinctly west coast twist.
Gumboots, Gumshoes & Murder – A cop, a pig, & a serial killer walk into a bar.
The Dastardly Mr. Deeds – A cop, a pig, & an undertaker know something is a foot.
Murder Most Fowl - A cop, a pig, & a farmer know something smells fowl.
Seal Island is home to a moonshine making billionaire, a pot growing fisherman, a celebrity flower child, a handsome romance writer, a sex addicted realtor, a womanizing pub owner, a cop, a pot-bellied pig…and a serial killer.
The island is serene and remote. It is only accessible by boat. The residents like it that way, until those with the deepest and darkest of secrets start dying in the most bizarre of ways.
Upon discovering widow, Eliza Bone, floating bottoms-up in her Oscar fish tank, the one clue that the crime solving duo of Sergeant Betty Bruce and her pot-bellied pig, Gertrude, have is a set of muddy gumboot tracks left at the scene. Their problem: everyone on Seal Island wears gumboots.
As two more people die and secrets begin to unravel, Betty and Gertrude soon find themselves in the cross-hairs of a serial killer.
In the end, only Gertrude may be left standing!
