The KenKen Killings

A Puzzle Lady Mystery

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


The Puzzle Lady just can't stay out of trouble. When the late Chester T. Markowitz, a man she never met, leaves $10,000 to his beloved wife, Cora Felton, the Puzzle Lady can't help cashing the check. Quicker than you can say legal proceedings, Cora's least favorite ex-husband, Melvin, shows up in Bakerhaven with an attorney and a young bimbo, demanding that her alimony be terminated on the grounds she remarried.

When a key witness in the alimony hearing gets murdered, a KenKen puzzle is left at the scene of the crime. Is someone trying to tell Cora something? Before she can find out, she runs into more murders, more puzzles (both KenKen and crossword) and a murder weapon that seems to point to Melvin as the killer! At least it might have, if Cora hadn't suppressed it.

Does the Puzzle Lady still have feelings for the scoundrel she once married? Don't ask. She might kill you!

The twelfth in the Puzzle Lady series, The KenKen Killings is sure to please fans, and make some new ones.

From Publishers Weekly

Nov 01, 2010 – At the start of Hall's tantalizing 12th mystery featuring puzzle lady Cora Felton (after 2010's The Puzzle Lady vs. the Suduko Lady), Cora can't resist cashing a check for $10,000, a supposed legacy from the late Chester T. Markowitz, who may have been someone she was briefly married to years before. "Since I quit drinking, there are parts of my life I can't remember. The eighties, for instance," she tells Sherry Carter, her cruciverbalist niece, who smells something fishy. Cora later helps Bakerhaven, Conn., police chief Dale Harper investigate the home robbery of banker Roger Randolph. While nothing was stolen, a KenKen puzzle was left behind. Meanwhile, one of Cora's many bona fide ex-husbands, Melvin Crabtree, sues her so he can stop paying her alimony. Melvin's greedy young girlfriend, Bambi, and Evelyn, his current wife, cause more problems. Hall's crisp wit makes this another far-fetched funfest for puzzle mystery fans.
