Historical Mystery For Review

The Merchant of Death
Sub-Title: A Mayan Mystery
Series: Book 1 of the Cycle of Xhól
Published: November 9, 2014
Author: Cécile Chabot
Genre: Historical Mystery
Formats Available: print (limited quantities available to qualified reviewers/bloggers only) pdf, kindle, epub, mobi

A corpse, a wrongly-accused hunter, and a painter with an unquenchable thirst for justice.

17 May 679 AD: Xhól—a painter, a sculptor, and a cripple—discovers on the same day a dead man and that life can get complicated in Dos Pilas, a small Mayan settlement caught in the power struggle between Tikal and Calakmul, the two mighty city-states. The victim is a rich merchant just come back from a long trade journey in the North.

Unwittingly, Xhól directs the suspicions on One Hunter; One Hunter whom he believes to be innocent. As a result, Xhól feels compelled. Compelled to look for the real culprit. Compelled to wonder about the intrigues of the royal court. Compelled to bear with the sneers that the able-bodied throw at his limp.

When the news come that Tikal is launching an attack on Dos Pilas, the warriors ready themselves for combat. The Ajaw, lord of Dos Pilas, wants to close the case of the murdered merchant before his departure and decides that One Hunter will be executed on the morning the army leaves for war… Unless Xhól discovers the killer before.

Fans of Ellis Peters will delight in following the adventures of Xhól, as unlikely an investigator as Brother Cadfael, in the first installment of this sixteen book-long series, the Cycle of Xhól.

Suspenseful Murder Mystery For Review

Death by Autopsy: A Toni Day Mystery
By Jane Bennett Munro
Publisher: iUniverse
Published: October 2014
ISBN: 978-1491744796
Genre: Mystery, Thriller, Suspense
Formats Available For Review: print (limited quantities available to qualified reviewers/bloggers), kindle, nook

Pathologist Toni Day is faced with a situation most pathologists only joke about. Beulah Pritchard comes back to life on her autopsy table. Beulah was a coworker of Toni’s at Cascade Perrine Regional Medical Center, where she was known as a merciless gossip, happiest to attack female doctors with slander and lies.

Beulah drove her car off a snow-covered road with her husband’s dead body in the trunk. Although Beulah survived her injuries and hypothermia, she died, only to come alive on Toni’s table—and die again. Beulah’s estranged sister threatens to sue both Toni and the hospital for wrongful death, but it’s soon apparent both Beulah and her husband were murdered.

To save her career and the hospital, Toni investigates the mysterious deaths of Beulah and her husband. Her inquiries uncover a decades-old scheme of embezzlement, blackmail, and more. Soon, someone is on Toni’s tail: the killer, desperate to stop the curious pathologist from uncovering the truth. In order to stay alive, Toni must confront a vicious and clever murderer who will do anything to keep the past under wraps.
