Summary

Haunted houses are scary enough without knife-wielding clowns. Especially murderous knife-wielding clowns. So thinks Ellison Russell, single mother, artist, and reluctant sleuth.

Now death wears a red nose, and Ellison is up to the blood-stained collar of her new trench coat in costumes, caffeine, and possible killers. Who stabbed Brooks Harney, and why? Money? Jealousy? Drugs?

With her mother meddling, her father furious, and her date dragged downtown for questioning, it turns out that Ellison's only confidant is Mr. Coffee.

Can’t believe they’re not more popular

I downloaded the first book in this series in desperation, I had been struggling to find a new book I really enjoyed.
The narration is not as good as some,but still very easy to listen to.
If your stuck for a new listen and want a Sunday relaxing mystery. Give these a try.

Loved it!

I think the stories get better as you see the characters grow and develop. The narration is wonderful and I love the interaction between the characters. Ellison is becoming her own woman.

Send in the Clowns

This is the fourth book in the series that I've listened to and was read by Callie Beaulieu. Each was a great mystery that was well written and each was superbly read or more accurately acted. Thanks so much to the author and the reader.

Wow

As always, the mystery is well developed with lots of twists and turns. The characters are engaging with great story lines. The one thing that would make this story even better, would be for Ellison to tell her mother off one good time.
