A Hard Bargain

The Madeline Maclin Mysteries: Book #2
By Jane Tesh & Poisoned Pen Press
Narrated by Marguerite Gavin / 7 hours 4 minutes

After solving her first big murder case in the small town of Celosia, North Carolina, Madeline Maclin hopes at last to be taken seriously as a private investigator. She has opened an office in the home of her best friend, Jerry Fairweather, a man haunted by his past who enjoys running harmless scams. Jerry doesn’t feel worthy of anyone’s love, which is bad news for Madeline.

Secretly, Madeline has questions about the accident that killed Jerry’s parents and suspects that Jerry’s sister Harriet knows more than she’s willing to admit. But for now, Madeline is occupied with finding Kirby Willet, an eccentric inventor who left behind boxes of his belongings, including one filled with money. Meanwhile, the town is hopping with “Pageantoids,” rabid fans from Madeline’s days as a beauty queen who have come to Celosia to produce more pageants. And then there’s Rick Rialto, one of Jerry’s shady con-artist friends.

Josh Gaskins, the director of Voltage Films, is also in town and thinks Jerry’s old house is the perfect setting for his horror film about Celosia’s mythical beast, Curse of the Mantis Man. When there is a murder on the set, Madeline uncovers several suspects and is forced to investigate some hard bargains—at least one of which is with Jerry.
