The Adult Hint: Mystery at the Grand Hotel
There is nothing like a great mystery to keep you reading until the early hours of the morning, and this is simply one you can't afford to miss. This suspense-filled haunting story comes to you from the author of the Detective Cancini mystery series and will have you captivated until the very end.
This mystery is set in a Baltimore hotel famous for its history of deaths, all of which occur in a single room on the 13th floor. Unlucky number 13 has a way of making itself known. But when a reporter's sister is found dead, and police suspect suicide, she joins forces with a detective to prove them wrong.
However, all is not what it seems, and the detective definitely knows far more than he is letting on about her sister, the hotel, and its history of death. Her determination to uncover the truth will take her far more than she ever anticipated.
This nail-biting novel cleverly intertwines the past and the present as you discover the hidden mysteries surrounding this gruesome and grisly hotel. How far will one woman go to uncover the sinister shroud permeating her sister's death?
How far would you go?
Why do we love a great mystery?
Murder mysteries are all about questions - they make us think, analyze, and deduce, and in our minds, we have become part of the detective team.
Mysteries have a way of inserting their audience into the story; we become intimately involved as we try to solve the puzzle and catch the killer before they are revealed.
We need to understand the identity of the victim - who they were and what they were doing. We need to understand their history. And then we have the potential suspects who cause us to speculate, and just when we think we have figured it out, there is always that part in the back of our minds telling us it's too obvious.
As we try to discover who the murderer is and what motivated them to commit a crime, we catch a glimpse into a world far removed from our own; we catch insights into the psyche of people we pray we never meet.
Who should be reading this novel?
This is definitely for the over-18s and not for the faint-hearted or those of you who startle at the sound of a creaking door or eerie shadows.
