Death in the Heir


(Inspector Grimes Rhymes with Crimes # 2)

“Rodney’s at it again, only this time with a bit more English.” – Fern Creek Gazette

“Avoid the steak and kidney pie at any cost!” – Fern Creek Chronicle

Rodney’s in England exploring ideas for his next Inspector Grimes Rhymes with Crimes mystery novel by going undercover as a waiter at the notorious Salty Slug pub. On his very first day, three of Rodney’s customers flop face-down dead into their steak and kidney pies, and Rodney’s the chief suspect.

In an effort to clear his name, Rodney plunges backside-first into a hunt for a hidden will and a battle between unscrupulous siblings over inheritance of their parents’ vast estate. As events shift from bad to downright dangerous, can Rodney resist begging his fictional detective, the Sherlock Holmes-like Inspector Grimes, for help?

Death in the Heir is a parody of a cozy culinary mystery, more of a ‘howdunit?’ and ‘howcatchem?’ than a ‘whodunit?’ It also explores relationships between fiction and reality using sarcastic humor that seems off-the-wall, yet is grounded in everyday life. It is second in a series of Inspector Grimes Rhymes with Crimes mysteries. Worse Than Murder, a Food Truck Mystery, was first in the series. Death in the Heir includes five British comfort-food recipes.
