The Gold Deadline

(The second book in the Alexander Gold series)
A novel by

'A gem: sparkling dialogue, a neat lock room puzzle... Read this!' Ellery Queen's Mystery Magazine

The clock is ticking...

A lovely night at the Boguslav Ballet was supposed to be a relaxing evening out for Norma Gold and her brilliant, if somewhat eccentric husband, Alexander...

Instead the evening was pure murder.

It was the kind of case only Gold's genius could solve.

In the next box, the notoriously nasty impresario Viktor Boguslav, the ballet's owner, was viciously stabbed during the show.

The box's door was locked, the seats could be seen by hundreds of spectators, and Boguslav never uttered a sound.

The only other person in the box was billionaire Max Baron's son, Jeffrey.

Desperate to protect his son, Max promises Alexander Gold one million dollars if he can clear Jeffrey of the murder in thirty-six hours, before the ballet troupe leaves town.

But can Gold pull off the seemingly impossible and solve the murder in such a short space of time?

The Gold Deadline is an engaging murder mystery full of twists and turns to keep you guessing until the very end.

Praise for Herbert Resnicow

'A true original, unique, artful and very witty, with sharp, tart, delicious characters. First time a mystery made me laugh in decades' - Harold Q. Masur, author of The Broker
