Fred Carver series, Book 7 of 10

by John Lutz

Fred Carver investigates a series of suspicious deaths in a stately Florida retirement community

Hattie Evans, a retired schoolteacher, isn’t one to fuss. When her husband drops dead of a heart attack, she does her best to move on without too many tears. After all, Jerome was seventy years old. But an anonymous note, asserting that her husband was murdered, shakes her resolve, and she seeks out help. The police are useless, save that they send her to Fred Carver—a former Orlando cop who turned PI when a bullet shattered his left knee.

Her case takes Carver into the depths of Solartown: an old-age mecca where seventy is the new forty, golf carts are the only way to get around, and death from natural causes is nowhere to be found.

This ebook features an illustrated biography of John Lutz including rare photos and never-before-seen documents from the author’s personal collection.
