Murder In March Madness Day 15

Today we are up to day number fifteen in the Murder in March Madness event. All through the month of March I will highlight a different mystery with the word "Murder" or a variant in the title. Today's title is It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Murder by Jeff Markowitz, published November 2009.

It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Murder (2009)
Written by Jeff Markowitz

Cassie O’Malley is back in a Christmas mystery that will keep you laughing and guessing until the final showdown. At odds with her new boss, tabloid reporter Cassie O’Malley finds herself covering the shopping mall at Christmas. Cassie wants nothing to do with the assignment. Then Big Mack turns up dead in the men’s room, his throat slit. Sensing an opportunity for fifteen minutes of fame, mall security guard Oliver Berryhill spins a heroic tale of his confrontation in the men’s room with the loan shark. The police are skeptical, but Big Mack’s son, the even bigger Little Mack is determined to avenge his father’s murder. Barely a week later, a second body turns up in the employee break room and Cassie finds herself covering a double homicide. In a race against time, Cassie must solve the double murder before a third victim is killed in the wildly funny mystery It’s Beginning to Look a Lot like Murder.

  1. Interesting and very distinctive covers here, Scott. I think I like the first one best. Honestly, I can't say why; I just do.
