The Edwin Drood Murders

The Edwin Drood MurdersThe Droodists have arrived in Dickens Junction. Local bookstore owner Simon Alastair has his hands full in his role as co-chair for the latest convention honoring Charles Dickens’s uncompleted novel, The Mystery of Edwin Drood. A movie star, a pesky blogger, dueling scholars, a stage hypnotist, and an old family friend (among others) all have claims on Simon’s time. In addition, some Droodists are clearly more–or less–than they appear, including a mysterious young man with the improbable name of Edwin Drood.

When a priceless ring and a rare Dickensian artifact go missing, Simon and his reporter-partner Zach Benjamin learn that someone will do anything–including murder–to obtain an object of desire.

The Edwin Drood Murders is the second volume in the Dickens Junction mystery series that began with The Christmas Carol Murders, a book bestselling thriller writer Chelsea Cain called “a love letter to both Dickens and to the small town amateur detectives who’ve kept the peace in hamlets from River Heights to Cabot Cove.”

  1. I’m reading the Christmas Carol Murders. A gay sleuth it’s about time and I’m looking forward to the next one. Thank you

    • I hope you’re enjoying it…As you can see, the second book is out now, and expect The Our Mutual Friend Murders in spring 2015.
