The Corpse with the Golden Nose

A world-famous vintner is dead. And when a heartfelt plea to look into the matter is paired with an exclusive gourmet event in British Columbia’s stunning wine country, overindulgent foodie and criminologist Cait Morgan cannot resist. Cait is sure the owner of a family-run vineyard was murdered. Bud Anderson, Cait’s companion for the weekend, is convinced the woman took her own life. That is, until death strikes once again, between the neat rows of grapevines on the banks of magnificent Lake Okanagan. Uncovering obsessions and murderous thoughts among the victim’s wacky neighbors is a start. But, Cait soon realizes that more lives are at stake. Can she think, and act, quickly enough to prevent another death?

The second book in the Cait Morgan Mysteries, The Corpse with the Golden Nose is a classic whodunit featuring the eccentric Professor Cait Morgan. It has appeared on the BC Bestseller list twice – as BC’s Bestselling work of fiction!

Murder: Season by Season

Four tales about murder – Each with a seasonal twist!

Following her successful first collection, ‘MURDER: Month by Month’, Ace now brings us four stories that revolve around murder, and the seasons of the year. There’s a story here for everyone: from a classic ‘closed house’ mystery, through a madcap dash to save a life, via a thrilling page-turner, to a police procedural – Ace tackles them all with aplomb!

A novella-length Cait Morgan Mystery, where our Welsh Canadian criminology professor finds herself snowbound in a hunting lodge, miles from civilization, with a dead body and a house full of suspects.

A London detective agency with no future – until the cousin of one of the partners goes missing… for what turns out to be a very bizarre reason.

What could possibly go wrong when a father takes his two teens for a weekend at beautiful Pitt Lake in British Columbia? Throw in a dead body, and you’ll find out!

Did he fall… or was he pushed? Detective Inspector Evan Glover has to try to find out what happened to a man he worshipped from afar…a man whose career as a Welsh rugby player made him a hero.  But will what he uncovers produce the answers he needs? Or just raise more questions?

For lovers of murder fiction this book is a feast that will give pleasure… whatever the season! Go to www.lulu.com for the paper and e-version (www.lulu.com is the originating website and can usually provide the lowest prices) or click on the book cover to view/buy.

Murder: Month by Month

Twelve tales of murder – each linked to one month on the calendar! From her prize-winning story “Dear George”, which begins her murderous year, to the hatred that drives a guilt-ridden woman’s Christmastide memories, Ace never lets up. A sociopath plots in an English teashop, a Florentine vendetta threatens a hapless Scottish tourist and a Shakespearean scholar protects his reputation in a most unusual manner! Add the first three Cait Morgan Mysteries ever written, and a Detective Inspector who finds his wife’s insights invaluable, and you’ve got a book that will keep the reader turning the pages from month to murderous month! “Dear George” was broadcast on BBC Radio 4 in 2007 (read by Alex Kingston – Dr Corday in TV’s hit “ER”) and joins eleven other stories crafted by Ace, another of which, “Domestic Violence”, was also broadcast on BBC Radio 4 in 2008. Ace’s style is easy to read – she engages the reader right away…you might never look at a cup of tea or a Yuletide Wreath the same way, but you’re going to enjoy reading this book!
