Death on the Patagonian Express (Mass Market Paperbound)
Not Yet Published
Upon the breakout success of their travel agency blog, TrippyGirl, Amy Abel and her mother, Fanny, are asked to join a group of prominent travel writers on a scenic train tour of Patagonia. Their expedition seems to chug along smoothly until Fanny finds a body scavenged by condors in the wilderness. Even more unsettling, the corpse mysteriously disappears before fellow tourists arrive. Some question Fanny's sanity, but doubt becomes horror when the tour owner's angel investor is found dead in a similar position. As a number of "accidents" validate Amy's suspicion of foul play, the Abels must outsmart one very conniving killer--or they'll soon be en route to their final destination . . .
