The Corpse with the Crystal Skull (The Cait Morgan Mysteries)
by Cathy Ace

Seriously, if you can unravel the tangle of lies, betrayals, government secrets, missing papers and, well, what the crystal skull has to do with it all, before the clever Poirot-like denouement by the protagonist (who has seemed to be the most confused all along), you are a better chair-side detective than I am! Oh, and that locked room murder solution? Ve-r-r-y clever indeed!
~Here’s How It Happened

Cathy Ace has a sharp ear for dialogue, a knack for creating appealing characters, and a deft hand at crafting a satisfying plot.
~Author Elena Taylor

I really enjoyed the cast of characters and the setting of this story. It made it really exciting since they weren’t on their “home” turf.

I found The Corpse with the Crystal Skull a most enjoyable evening’s reading — it kept me turning the pages until nearly 2:30 . …

Welsh Canadian globetrotting sleuth, and professor of criminal psychology, Cait Morgan, is supposed to be “celebrating” her fiftieth birthday in Jamaica with her ex-cop husband Bud Anderson. But when the body of the luxury estate’s owner is discovered locked inside an inaccessible tower, Cait and her fellow guests must work out who might have killed him – even if his murder seems impossible. Could the death of the man who hosted parties in the 1960s attended by Ian Fleming and Noël Coward be somehow linked to treasure the legendary Captain Henry Morgan might have buried at the estate? Or to the mission Bud and his secret service colleagues have been sent to the island to undertake?

PRAISE FOR THE CAIT MORGAN MYSTERIES

“…touches of Christie or Marsh but with a bouquet of Kinsey Millhone.” —The Globe and Mail

 

“A sparkling, well-plotted, and quite devious mystery…” —The Hamilton Spectator

 

“…a sympathetic amateur detective, a locked-room mystery, a small cast of colourful suspects, loving descriptions of food and drink, and a few red herrings thrown our way…with a nod to a fresh literary or filmic artifice in each novel in the series…” – Crime Fiction Lover
