Together they uncover a ring of horror that has plagued their mountains for years.

A Motive for Murder (A Misty Sales Cozy Mystery, Book 1)

by Morgana Best

Note from the author: This book has been thoroughly and professionally edited by an independent, well known Editor. I, the author, am a former professor of grammar at a well known university. Yes, you will read allegations of shockingly bad editing and grammar in some reviews, which also target certain (but significantly, not all) other authors’ best selling books in the cozy categories. It is easy to find articles (for example, in Forbes, NY Times, The Guardian, The Huffington Post, The Telegraph), on this sort of campaign.

Please read. Misty Sales researches occult history in her search for the killer. This paranormal element might offend some.

Book ONE of the #1 Best-selling
Misty Sales Cozy Mystery Series.
Misty Sales is a slightly overweight journalist for a paranormal magazine in Australia. While her social life is almost non existent, she does have one skill: while wearing shapewear and with her reading glasses perched on her nose, she can out-research the best of them, especially when her caffeine levels are high.
When sent to England to write articles about alchemists of the past, Misty has no sooner arrived than she finds the body of her elderly Aunt, and at once inherits her Aunt’s feisty cat, Diva. Misty is suddenly drawn into a web of intrigue, secret societies, and the mystical.
What secret of her aunt’s gave someone a motive for murder?
As time runs out, Misty races to put the pieces together before she becomes the next victim.

Praise for Jude Hardin’s Thrillers:

POCKET-47 sucked me in and held me enthralled. Author Jude Hardin keeps the pace frantic, the thrills non-stop, but best of all is his hero, the wonderfully ironic Nicholas Colt. This is a character I’m eager to follow through many adventures to come.

â??Tess Gerritsen, New York Times bestselling author of ICE COLD.

The best PI debut I’ve read in years, fit to share shelf space with the best of Ross Macdonald, Sue Grafton, and Robert B. Parker. POCKET-47 is so hot you may burn your hands reading. Highly recommended.

â??J.A. Konrath, author of the Jack Daniels mysteries

Hardin gets everything right in his powerhouse thriller debut, which introduces rock star-turned-PI Nicholas Colt.

â??Publishers Weekly on POCKET-47

KEY DEATH is an exhilarating thriller that punches way above its weight. It hits you hard and fast with crackling suspense, hair-raising twists and stunning revelations. Word of advice: don’t start on this one unless you’re prepared to stay up all night.

â??John Ling, author of THE BLASPHEMER

Colt is a physical, no-holds-barred PI, reminiscent of Robert B. Parker’s Spenser and Lee Child’s Jack Reacher, and his debut is action-packed. With a hefty toll of dead bodies, some described in cringe-inducing detail, this is crime fiction at its rawest. Hard-boiled connoisseurs should make Colt’s acquaintance now.

â??Booklist on POCKET-47

With CROSSCUT, Jude Hardin takes the PI novel and psychological suspense to a new, unrestrained level. Fast, fierce, and relentless.

â??David Morrell, New York Times bestselling creator of Rambo
