Scot & Soda

McPherson stands apart in her ability to tell a hilarious tale while balancing the ramifications of crime. The author follows up Scot Free with another riveting cozy starring Lexy and her quirky yet fiercely loyal friends. This time, however, the deadpan humor is countered by a somber resolution and a story about consequences.

Go to My Grave

The suspense builds to an almost unbearable crescendo with a wholly satisfying and upsetting denouement, all flawlessly rendered by Hewitt. McPherson has created a truly haunting version of a revenge thriller that will be appreciated by any mystery reader.

A Deadly Measure of Brimstone: A Dandy Gilver Mystery

Fans of the period as well as such TV series as Downton Abbey and Upstairs, Downstairs will enjoy Dandy's latest adventure (after Dandy Gilver and a Bothersome Number of Corpses), although the will-they, won't-they romance between policeman Alec Osborne and Dandy is wearing thin.

The Day She Died

Keep the lights on and batten down the hatches, for McPherson's psychologically terrifying stand-alone demands to be read all night. Miles away from her witty and award-winning historical cozy series (Dandy Gilver and the Proper Treatment of Bloodstains), Scottish author McPherson has written a top-notch tale of modern gothic suspense that is sure to please Charlotte Brontë and Daphne du Maurier fans.
