Speak Out Before You Die: Double V Mysteries, #2

272 pages4 hours


Guests arrive to attend a wedding in a snowbound mansion on New Year’s Eve.  A discovered note warns of danger at midnight. 

Juliet Van Allen’s wealthy widowed father is preparing to marry a much younger woman in the early hours of New Year’s Day, but when it appears that one of the guests might carry out a threat, she calls in her friend, ex-con Elmer Vartanian to post as a hired servant to help ferret out the clues and prevent a murder...but midnight is approaching and time is running out.

Speak Out Before You Die is the second book in the Double V Mysteries series set in New England in the late 1940s and early 1950s.

If you like the romance and charm of a classic film, this “cozy noir” will remind you of an era when dramatic stories were elegant, subtle, and grim family secrets are revealed over a game of charades in evening dress, while sipping a champagne cocktail.

Enter a world where the second half of the Twentieth Century begins with a toast, a chorus of Auld Lang Syne, and a promise of revenge – now.
