Grand Slam Murders
(A Bridge to Death Mystery)
by R.J. Lee
I loved Lee’s writing style. It was fantastic, precise and clear. His storytelling skills are excellent – keeps the reader hooked on to the story until the end.
~The Book Decoder
The author is very talented in creating suspense with the written word. There were a lot of twists and turns and at times I felt like I was on a roller coaster. The ending was surprising and just another example of that roller coaster ride.
An interesting read with a twist on high society women and their behaviors. The layers are unraveled in due time at a steady pace.

After four bridge players are poisoned, newspaper reporter Wendy Winchester sets out to catch a killer who’s not playing with a full deck . . .
When the four wealthy widows who make up the venerable Rosalie Bridge Club never get up from their card table, this quiet Mississippi town has its first quadruple homicide. Who put cyanide in their sugar bowl? An aspiring member and kibitzer with the exclusive club, Wendy takes a personal interest in finding justice for the ladies.
She also has a professional motivation. A frustrated society columnist for the Rosalie Citizen, she’s ready to deal herself a better hand as an investigative reporter. This could be her big break. Plus, she has a card or two up her sleeve: her sometimes boyfriend is a detective and her dad is the local chief of police.
Partnering up with the men in her life, Wendy starts shuffling through suspects and turning over secrets long held close to the chest by the ladies. But when a wild card tries to take her out of the game, Wendy decides it’s time to up the ante before she’s the next one to go down . . .
