Salem, New York – Savvy Press announces the release of Quick Walk to Murder. The latest mystery by acclaimed novelist jd daniels, Quick Walk To Murder is a fun, fresh, and feisty tale set against the backdrop of a funky Southwest Florida fishing village.
Quick Walk to Murder opens with the murder of the son of a local crab fisher folk family. Young Jessie Murphy, an artist from Cambridge, MA who solved a homicide the previous season on the island, joins forces with two quirky, but savvy locals in hopes of bringing the murderer to justice. In her search for the reasons behind the murder, Jessie uncovers hidden—and frighteningly disturbing—relationships between the victim and many of his acquaintances. Among them? A local crab fisherman who secretly hired the young man, the victim’s girlfriend and her over-protective brother, the victim’s college roommate, an adviser at college, a psychic, the victim’s mother and two strangers who show up on the island with badges. With no shortage of suspects, Jessie launches a pulse-quickening investigation that leads her to death’s door. But through her own power of reasoning and feisty Irish refusal to not finish a job once begun, Jessie uncovers a startling, surprising ending.
Quick Walk to Murder has received this high advance praise:
“A quick-paced murder mystery with more twists and turns than Matlacha Pass. A great ‘summer read’ or ‘winter read’ for snowbirds.”
– Pine Island Eagle
