Parts of a dismembered corpse are found on a rocky stretch of beach in Montevideo, Uruguay, apportioned equally between the Memorial to a German cruiser sunk in World War II and the Memorial to Jews killed in the Holocaust. Because of the murder victim's strategic location shared between two antithetical monuments, the Uruguayan press names her “The Ambivalent Corpse”. Private detective Roger Bowman and his girlfriend, scientist Suzanne Foster, find themselves traveling through Uruguay, Southwest Brazil, and parts of Paraguay and Argentina to help solve the case. This fast paced mystery has plenty of action, atmosphere, and sense of place. While the novel is basically a hard-bitten mystery story, it bends the genre slightly so that it should also appeal to readers interested in travel, romance, and South American food and wine.
I thought you might be interested in our new novel, The Empanada Affair, a romantic mystery set in Salta and Northwest Argentina. It's available from Amazon as a $0.99 Kindle book. Enjoy. We're from up the road a bit in Davis.
Book #2 in this series, The Ambivalent Corpse, will be published on Amazon in about a month. It's set in Montevideo, with a couple of chapters set in Santa Caterina and Iguazu Falls.
Hi Milena. If you like to read--my novel CROSSROADS is now available. It is an international action thriller (espionage/romance/paranormal) based on several actual events. The novel is in the E-book format (Fictionwise, Ereader, etc.) and it will be soon in Print too. It can be ordered through my website http://www.SNEDELTON.com. Several reviewers rated it as very good.
My next thriller, The Raven Affair, should be published in the Fall.
Thanks for your interest.
