Monkey See, Monkey Murder

Cast of Monkey See, Monkey Murder

I don’t have a date yet. That will come soon. As things take shape, I’ll continue releasing little tidbits here and there. Writing is going very well. I’m pleased with the results.


Rowan Manory and Walter Williams have handled their fair share of impossible crimes, but nothing can prepare them for a case of simian murder.

Smelting mogul Steven Rinehardt is attacked in Malaysia while on safari. A crazed macaque nearly pummels him to death. Months later, he moves to Chicago where it happens again. Rinehardt knows who’s behind the monkey murder attempts, but that man is protected by the corrupt Chicago police.

Manory and Williams are on the case! They must uncover a sinister and complex plot in order to find the truth. The investigation culminates in the most ingenious locked-room murder the detectives have yet encountered. Monkey See, Monkey Murder is a closed-circle, fair-play, impossible-crime, detective novel. It’s fair, dark, and bloody.
