Kate Kennedy attends a dinner for Swami Schwartz, founder of the Palmetto Beach Yoga Institute. Swami drops dead because someone spiked his double espresso with cyanide.
Kate is recently widowed and fairly new to retirement in South Florida. Her ex-sister-in-law Marlene lives in the same condo building. The two of them decide to try to figure out why he was poisoned.
Their investigation leads them to a cryogenics firm where you can have your head frozen for $30,000 or your whole body for $128,000.
There is a plethora of suspects. Can they figure out who did it and why without putting themselves in danger?
I really enjoy this series. I think Kate is a fun senior sleuth. The escapades that she and Marlene get into are very entertaining. It is a fun, fast read! A great cozy mystery.
For those of you who might not know, she has also written the Ghostwriter series as Noreen Wald. They’re great fun too!
I highly recommend this book!
