Salacious, silly, sad, and sanguine, In Santa Fe, Salacious takes Cinnamon, a female sleuth, and her pal Burro into the underside of Santa Fe, New Mexico, the city different. In this salacious mystery, a man dies of a blow to the head in St. Francis Cathedral, and a cast of sexually confused characters vie for the role of lead suspect. This crime story continues the tradition of quirky characters that define this top mystery series. Who killed the hairdresser Marco as he prayed quietly in a chapel in downtown Santa Fe?
Eiffel Tower Lowe “burned herself up” in the pink room — or that’s what Daddy told me. The pink room was right down the hall from my childhood bedroom, and there was a fireplace at the end of the bed. The gruesome mystery of Tower Lowe haunted me all my life, so I stole her name for my mystery stories.
Cinnamon is the woman sleuth and Burro is her assistant in my current indie series. The series starts with the unexplained beating death of a middle school boy in Dulce, New Mexico (In Dulce, Disturbed). The investigators travel around the state, meeting quirky characters and solving criimes using Burro’s hallucinations to provide clues. Cinnamon pursues her long lost “Momma,” who abandoned her at the tender age of 6. In every story she finds another clue to Momma, and Cinnaman is determined to find her. At the end of 10 stories, 10 crimes are solved and Cinnamon knows what happened to Momma.
