The Origin of Murder by Jerry758

indie ebook cover

The Origin of Murder, a suspenseful tour of the Galapagos Islands with a killer onboard! Roger and Suzanne revisit South America to solve another deadly mystery. Accompanied by their son Robert and his jack-of-all-trades nanny Bruce, they take a vacation cruise through the Galapagos Islands, 600 miles west of Ecuador. En route, they visit the ancient Incan city and capital of Ecuador, Quito the highest capital city in the Americas. During their cruise through the Islands, Suzanne finds a dead body floating with a couple of bullet holes in the Pacific Ocean and we're off to solve another deadly mystery. As Roger and Suzanne retrace the path that Charles Darwin sailed and walked more than 175 years ago, the body count increases almost as fast as the clues. Among the suspects is a mysterious travel agent with an eye-opening secret, a cheerful bird watching couple from Germany, a happy honeymooning newlywed couple, two stunning sensual sisters from San Francisco, an older couple from Australia working through their bucket list, and a couple from Uruguay seeing the wonders of the world while they can. Lurking in the background behind the scenes are a shadowy Ecuadorian general and a Paraguayan policeman. From a 5-star reader review, “When a luxury cruise ship full of hard-to-predict eco-tourists is confronted with a murdered passenger, survival of the fittest takes on a whole new meaning.” Series fans and new readers will enjoy this mystery novel, which can be enjoyed as a standalone entry to the series. Like all of the Roger and Suzanne series on Amazon Kindle, this is a tough, sometimes violent, but clean (no cussing, no sexual promiscuity), mystery.

About The Author...

indie author

Jerry758

      

The author is a Professor of Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine at the University of California's Medical School at Davis, near Sacramento in Northern California. Jerry writes “tweener” mystery books (tough mystery stories that follow the cozy conventions of no graphic sex and no cussing) that are fast moving and entertain the reader. Several of the books introduce the readers to South America, a region where he has lived and worked that is a long way from home for most English speakers. He and his wife Elaine lived previously in Salta, Argentina and Montevideo, Uruguay. Jerry selects the most interesting South American locations he found for Roger and Suzanne to visit while solving miscellaneous murders. Montevideo, Salta, Machu Picchu, the Galapagos Islands, and Iguazu Falls are also characters in these books, and the novels portray these places as vivid and real. Jerry and Elaine breed prize-winning German shorthaired pointer dogs; Elaine also provides technical advice for Jerry’s dog-related novels like The Deadly Dog Show and Hunter Down, as well as editing for all of the books.
