Mystery author Rachel Goldman is getting used to the idea that her fictional creation Duffy Madison has somehow taken flesh-and-blood form and is investigating missing person cases not far from where Rachel lives. Wait. No. She’s not getting used to it at all, and the presence of this real-life Duffy is making her current manuscript—what’s the word?—lousy.
So she doesn’t want to see Duffy—the living one—at all. To make matters worse, when he shows up at her door and insists on talking to her, it’s about the one thing she doesn’t want to do: Find a missing person. But the man Duffy seeks this time around might be able to solve Rachel’s problem. He might just be the man Duffy was before he became Duffy five years ago. The only problem is she could be letting Duffy lead her into danger yet again…
Entertaining and witty, the second in E.J. Copperman’s Mysterious Detective Mystery series Edited Out will delight his fans, both new and old.
E.J. Copperman is the author of a number of mystery series, including the Mysterious Detective series (Written Out), the Haunted Guesthouse series (Ghost in the Wind) and with Jeff Cohen, the Asperger’s mystery series (The Question of the Felonious Friend). E.J.’s newest, the Agent to the Paws mystery series, began this year. It is exhausting for E.J. just to think about it.
