Description

In the south of France where hatred simmers in the heat, a man seemingly admired, and certainly feared, drops dead at a dinner party. All of the guests fall under suspicion, including Welsh-Canadian professor Cait Morgan. A criminologist who specializes in profiling victims, Cait sets out to solve the murder—and clear her name. Add to this the disappearance of an ancient Celtic gold collar said to be cursed and there you have the ingredients for a Nicoise salad of death, secrets, and lies. Will Cait find the killer before she too falls victim to a murderer driven by a surprising and disturbing motive?

The Corpse with the Silver Tongue is the first in the Cait Morgan mystery series, a classic whodunit series featuring the eccentric Professor Cait Morgan.

Editorial Review

Ace’s smooth debut introduces Welsh-born Cait Morgan, a Vancouver, B.C., criminology professor and police consultant, who finds more than she bargained for in Nice, France, where she’s come to present a colleague’s paper. A chance encounter with her former boss, wealthy, unscrupulous Alastair Townsend, leads to a dinner invitation at his exclusive apartment. When Alastair expires after slumping into a bowl of escargots at the dinner table, Cait becomes, by default, the prime suspect because all the other guests are well-known locally. Among them are the poisoning victim’s trophy wife, Tamsin; octogenarian gardener Gerard Fontainebleau; and thriller author Chuck Damcott. Tamsin cries something about the “curse of the Celtic collar,” a stolen necklace. A museum robbery and further deaths give the plus-sized Cait plenty to think about as she tries to apply her academic expertise to solving the murder. Cait’s enjoyable first outing should earn her a well-deserved encore.
