Susan C. Shea - The King's Jar

Saturday, May 18, 2013 - 1:00pm

Susan C. Shea presents The King's Jar ($14.00). When the renowned archaeologist who authenticated the King s Jar turns up dead, and the invaluable relic vanishes, Dani suddenly finds herself trapped in a real-life game of Clue with a gallery of glittering suspects, and a killer who s playing for keeps. But drumming up donations from society swells is a far cry from matching wits with homicidal thieves. And juggling the amorous advances of a police detective, a TV celebrity, and her own playboy ex-husband while sparring with an African ambassador, an obsessed archaeologist-in-training, a millionaire and his trophy wife certainly doesn't make it any easier to figure out who's lying...or keep anyone else from dying.

Susan Shea spent more than two decades as a non-profit executive before beginning her best-selling mystery series featuring a professional fundraiser for a fictional museum. She loved her former work but admits to having much more fun hanging out with crime writers and inspired storytellers. She’s a regular on The LadyKillers blog, is on the board of the Northern California chapter of Sisters in Crime and is a past board member of Norcal’s chapter of Mystery Writers of America. She lives in Marin County, California, but hopes no one will hold it against her.
