Out of Sight, Out of Murder

by Fred Carmichael
A refreshing, witty parody of a murder mystery

Peter Knight is grinding out a murder story in an old mansion where a previous author was murdered years before.  A weird electrical storm effects a cosmic mishap and his characters come to life.  There’s the lovely ingenue, the trusty butler, a feisty character woman, a dauntless hero, a fascinating ‘other woman’, the always pregnant serving girl and the wily lawyer waiting for midnight to read the will.  Peter loses control of his characters and there is a murder: the intended victim is Peter.  Other murders follow and the culprit is among the characters who, having also worked for other authors, know a great deal about the subject. Can Peter find the killer before the killer gets his author? Is romance with the ingenue leading anywhere?  Where is the fortune mentioned in the will? All is solved ingeniously with romance, suspense and cosmic wit.
