Local author Saralyn Richard joins us again on Saturday with her latest mystery novel, a whodunit set in a private party for the well-to-do.
When old friends gather for a weekend retreat at a country mansion, no one anticipates how their lives will be changed—or that one of them will turn up dead. Remote and serene, the Campbells’ horse farm is the perfect setting for a lavish party. The guests, members of the country’s elite wealthiest one percent, indulge in gourmet food, fine wines, Cuban cigars—but greed, lust, and jealousy insinuate themselves into the party.
Playboy and ex-Secretary of the Treasury, Preston Phillips, brings his new trophy wife to the party, unaware that his first love, the woman he jilted at the altar years ago, will be there, enchanting him once more with her timeless beauty. A snowstorm, an accident, and an illicit rendezvous later, the dynamics crackle with tension.
When Detective Oliver Parrott is charged with solving the shocking murder of one of America’s leading financial wizards, he realizes this will be the case to make—or break—his career.
Once a teacher who wrote on the side, Saralyn Richard is now a writer who teaches on the side. Her children’s picture book, Naughty Nana, has reached thousands of children in five countries. Murder in the One Percent is her first mystery. Saralyn is a member of the International Thriller Writers and Mystery Writers of America, and is now revising her second mystery. She lives in Galveston.
