This never-before-published police procedural by celebrated author Elizabeth Linington contains one of the most ingenious plots ever.
Mystery writer Brendan Monroe is in torment -- he's afraid that his flamboyant fictional detective P.I. Roy Barron has come to life!
It began, Monroe explains to Sergeant Dan Valentine of the Santa Monica police, when different items belonging to Barron -- his gray monogrammed homburg, a pack of Pall Malls, his Colt .357 -- mysteriously started to appear. Worse yet, Monroe is finding corrections penciled onto his latest manuscript . . . in Barron's looping scrawl. Is the author losing his mind -- or is someone attempting to make it seem that way?
When Barron is found dead, Valentine focuses his investigation on the local chapter of the Mystery Writers of America, where he faces the fascinating challenge of trying to trap a murderer whose profession is devising diabolical plots.
The cleverly conceived plot and colorful characterizations of Alter Ego make this new mystery by Elizabeth Linington one you'll not soon forget.
