Oliver Twisted

(The third book in the Ivy Meadows Mystery series)
A novel by


"It is not easy to combine humor and murder, but Cindy Brown does it effortlessly."
Rhys Bowen


"Brown mixes laugh out loud observations about the acting life with a witty and intriguing mystery. Consider yourself warned. Oliver Twisted is a fast-paced addictive read impossible to put down until Ivy has caught the killer." - D.E. Ireland, Agatha Award-Nominated Author of Move Your Blooming Corpse

"A fun and rollicking mystery at sea with a delightfully twisty plot and a heartfelt heroine who is as entertaining as she is soulful. I highly recommend this series. More please!" - John Clement, Author of the Dixie Hemingway Mysteries

"This gut-splitting mystery is a hilarious riff on an avant-garde production of 'the Scottish play'...Combining humor and pathos can be risky in a whodunit, but gifted author Brown makes it work." - Mystery Scene Magazine (on Macdeath)

"A definite delight... sit back, wait for the curtain to rise on this one, and then have a whole lot of fun figuring out whodunit." - Suspense Magazine (on The Sound of Murder)

"Ivy is a delight! She's sweet, smart, and a little zany. You'll find yourself laughing out loud as you race through the pages." - April Henry, New York Times Bestselling Author of Lethal Beauty (on The Sound of Murder)

Orphans. Thieves. Murder. And an All-You-Can-Eat Buffet!

When Ivy Meadows lands a gig with the book-themed cruise line Get Lit!, she thinks she's died and gone to Broadway. Not only has she snagged a starring role in a musical production of Oliver Twist, she's making bank helping her PI uncle investigate a string of onboard thefts, all while sailing to Hawaii on the S.S. David Copperfield.

But Ivy is cruising for disaster. Her acting contract somehow skipped the part about aerial dancing forty feet above the stage, her uncle Bob is seriously sidetracked by a suspicious blonde, and - oh yeah - there's a corpse in her closet.

Forget catching crooks. Ivy's going to have a Dickens of a time just surviving.
