Author Cindy Brown and her new book,"Oliver Twisted."

Author Cindy Brown

Agatha Award Nominated Series.

"I should have known Uncle Bob would be the one to blow our cover."

Olive... er, Ivy, or uh Nancy is hired by her P.I. Uncle to help him catch a gang of thieves while undercover on the S.S. David Copperfield. She is enticed by her finances and by the chance to play Nancy in the musical version of Oliver Twist, all while sailing to Hawaii. Her contract forgot to mention aerial duties that left her dangling forty feet above the stage in which there would be no mat. Nor did she expect to find a dead body her first day at sea. All in a day's work for this fast paced mystery.

From the very first page this Author hooks you into a very witty, compact mystery. The Dickens references are a joy as are the thieves and murderous characters. Sail on S.S. David Copperfield... in the meantime this is a perfect read for both theater lovers and mystery buffs. I highly recommend.
