A Classic Mystery Set In Charleston, South Carolina

Private detectives Edna Dugué and Jerrelle Vesey, who first appeared in the award-winning novella, “Politics Makes Dead Bedfellows,” return to investigate new and old slayings in Murder Takes the Cake. Humorously recounted by Jerrelle in the style of Archie Goodwin’s narration of Nero Wolfe cases, this classic mystery – no sex or overt violence, mild profanity – showcases historic, tourist-friendly Charleston: Fort Sumter, White Point Garden, Rainbow Row, the Pineapple Fountain, Old Slave Mart, the French Quarter, and delectable southern cuisine.
