A DEAD WOMAN ON A BEACH HAS NO ID – JUST A BEAUTIFUL NECKLACE AND A SILVER SLIPPER LYING NEARBY IN THE SAND…
Julia Fairchild, MD, and her sister Carly go on a carefree vacation in the British Virgin Islands, but soon get pulled into the mystery of a murdered Jane Doe whose body lies on a huge rock on an isolated beach. No strangers to crime, the sisters offer their help and expertise to the baffled local investigators who reluctantly agree.
Upon closer examination of the mystifying case, they encounter endless twists and dead ends. Eventually the evidence they discover leads them to the nearby set of a pirate movie, but how does a corpse connect to a bunch of pretend buccaneers? Can the sisters unravel the mystery in time to nail a killer, or will they be the next cadavers to turn up on the sand?
SILENT SLIPPER, the fifth standalone novel in the Julia Fairchild series by mystery author PJ Peterson.
P.J. PETERSON‘s first dream at the age of seven was to grow up to be a doctor and “help” people. After 37 years of practicing internal medicine, she published a mystery that had lain dormant on a floppy disc for almost 40 years. She discovered the thrill of pressing that “publish” button and found a whole new world.
Writing mysteries is her way of using her diagnostic skills in a different way–burying puzzles to solve inside a story with snippets of real life. And it keeps her out of trouble, more or less.
PJ’s passions, when she’s not writing, are health care and education. She donates time to the local free medical clinic and shares a portion of her royalties with St. Rose Catholic School and Seton High College Prep, both of which are close to her heart.
