About the Book

Murder has come once more to the seaside town of Crab Cove, testing the mettle of “almost handsome” Detective Simon Grave and his “nearly invisible” partner, Sergeant Barry Blunt, who investigate a locked-room mystery with a significant twist: the prime suspects are in the locked room, not the victim, a logic-defying situation that challenges the team at every turn. As if murder weren’t enough, they must also investigate the simultaneous disappearance of The MacGuffin Trophy from that same locked room, the studio of artist Whitney Waters, famous for her stylized paintings of red herrings. Who is/are the killer(s)? How did he/she/they get out of the locked room with the trophy, kill the victim, and return unnoticed by others in the room? These and other questions, including the limits of logic and the meaning of life, are posed and perhaps even answered in this quirky, near-future mystery. Yes, there are robots.

About the Author
Len Boswell

Len Boswell is the author of eight books, most notably his Simon Grave Mysteries, an award-winning series featuring the comic exploits of "almost handsome" Detective Simon Grave and his "nearly invisible" partner, Sergeant Barry Blunt. His writing has been compared to the writings of Janet Evanovich, Rich Leder, Terry Pratchett, Douglas Adams, and Kurt Vonnegut, but he'd like to think his cozy comedic mysteries are something new, blending mystery, humor, and satire in the mythical seaside town of Crab Cove in the not-too-distant 2050s. Yes, there are robots, and fun!
