(The eighth book in the Penelope Banks Murder Mystery series)
A novel by

A very merry mission ends in a very un-merry murder…on 34th Street.

New York 1925

The holidays are here and spirits are bright. Penelope “Pen” Banks and Cousin Cordelia have decided to go to Herald Square to watch the second annual “Macy’s Christmas Parade” ending at 34th Street.

But an even bigger event awaits her the next day. Pen is finally meeting Detective Richard Prescott’s family, and is hosting them all for Thanksgiving dinner. As such, she has decided to get a present for Richard’s young nephew.

After the parade, the quaint toy store across the street from the city’s largest department store catches her eye. While there, she manages to get her hands on what she’s been told is the most desired toy of the season for young boys.

Unfortunately, a body is found in the back room of the toy store soon after she makes her purchase. While the police are satisfied they’ve caught their suspect, Pen isn’t so sure. Still, she wisely follows Richard’s advice to let it go…until she realizes the crime has followed her home.

Nothing brings a family together during the holidays like a good mystery. Now, much to both Richard’s and Penelope’s surprise, both sides of the family have decided the holiday dinner is the perfect time to join in on playing detective with the couple.

At least until the festivities become potentially fatal…

A Murder on 34th Street is the eighth book in the Penelope Banks Mystery series set in 1920s New York. The very merry holiday enjoyment of a cozy historical mystery combined with the excitement and daring of New York during Prohibition and the Jazz Age.
