Say Goodbye to Archie

(2013)
(A book in the Rex Graves Mysteries series)
A Novella by

 
 
A BRITISH MYSTERY FOR CAT LOVERS AND COZY FANS
Scottish barrister Rex Graves investigates the murder, not of a person, but of a pet! And not just any pet. This is Archie, the cat belonging to famous author Patricia Forsyth and the inspiration for her popular children's stories. Who in the idyllic village of Woodley could have curtailed the life of her feline muse and beloved companion?
Events turn downright nasty as neighbour turns on neighbour, family members feud, and Patricia's closest collaborators fall under bitter suspicion. Rex undertakes to find out "whodunit" in this most unconventional case and let the proverbial cat out of the bag.

Novella (20,000 words).

By #1 Kindle bestselling author of Christmas Is Murder, published by Midnight Ink.

**STARRED** Review: "The first installment in this new mystery series is a winner... At times, it seems we are playing Clue or perhaps enjoying a contemporary retelling of a classic Agatha Christie tale (And Then There Were None, or At Bertram's Hotel) with a charming new sleuth. A must for cozy fans."
~Booklist (American Library Association)

"C.S. Challinor's CHRISTMAS IS MURDER dishes up an English manor house mystery with the traditional elements: a murder, a small contingent of suspects thrown together, and an engaging and witty sleuth... Challinor will keep most readers guessing as she cleverly spreads suspicion and clues that point in one direction, then another."
~Alfred Hitchcock Mystery Magazine

"A disparate group of guests snowed in at an English hotel await Christmas and death. Rex Graves, QC, uses his prosecutorial expertise to work his way through method and motive until he announces the murderer in a denouement in the classic style. Challinor's debut is a pleasant modern knockoff of Christie."
~Kirkus Reviews
