The Corpse with the Ruby Lips
A new book from Bony Blithe award-winning mystery author Cathy Ace where her sleuth Cait Morgan investigates a chilling cold case from a university in Budapest.
A gig as guest lecturer at the university in Budapest should have been a dream job for a travelling criminologist and food lover. But wherever Cait Morgan goes, murder seems to follow. One of Cait's new students pleads with her to solve the mystery of her grandmother's brutal slaying. She agrees, but when she is repeatedly hassled by a weird colleague, and as bizarre details about the student's family members come to light, Cait is beset by uncertainty.
As she gets closer to the truth, Cait's investigation puts the powers-that-be on high alert, and her instincts tell her she's in grave danger. Bud races to Budapest to come to Cait's aid, but will it be too late?
