The Price Team Hires a Newbie (and #GIVEAWAY)


by Kate Weller from Mary Ellis’s Hiding in Plain Sight


Hey, y’all, I’m Kate Weller, lucky new employee at Price Investigations. I say lucky because these guys are good. So maybe if learn the ropes I can stay alive long enough to solve my case, get paid, then move on to the next assignment in a new town. Because someone’s trying to kill me…and I’m not exactly sure why.

Let me explain how this whole mess started….I was on my way out to Tybee Island to my mentor-and-friend’s engagement party when some nutcase tries to run me off the road. This wasn’t an ordinary case of road rage where someone speeds around you and cuts back in too close because you’d been driving too slow. This nutcase seriously tried to force my car off the causeway into the bay. First chance I got, I turned off the highway into a deserted marina where there’s more weeds than boats. Not wishing to await my fate inside my banged-up car, I jump out and look for a place to hide. With every building locked up I’ve got nowhere to go but into the marsh. The dark, cold, smelly marsh with crawly things nibbling my toes. If ruining my favorite pair of shoes wasn’t bad enough, I watch in horror as the lunatic pushes my car down the boat ramp into the waterway.

“Hey, Kathryn, or Kate, or Katrina,” yells the lunatic. “Or whatever you’re calling yourself these days. Come on out, so we chat about old times.”

Then shots cut through the sawgrass over my head, convincing me of two things: This guy knows me from somewhere and he means business. I sure hope my new friends at Price Investigations can figure this mystery out before I become just another murder to solve.

  1. This book looks intriguing! If I needed to hide in plain sight I would move to New York City. There's a ton of people to get lost in the crowd with, and nobody ever looks each other in the eye! mbradeen [at] yahoo [dot] com

  8. Where to hide in plain sight is such a good question. I think a move to a big city might be best because you can always be in a busy, crowded place. I'd choose Vancouver, because I've always wanted to visit there ~ HIDING IN PLAIN SIGHT sounds like a great read and is now on my TBR list. Thanks for visiting Killer Characters and for your giveaway. bobanadcelia@sbcglobal.net

  11. This book sounds fascinating. I would probably head to a big city to hide out. I think there would be less chance of being noticed and more options to hide out at. acate9(at)utk(dot)edu

  12. I would hide in the Smokie mountains so I could watch the bears whenever I wanted to! This sounds like another great book by Mary Ellis!

  13. You could hide in plain site in pretty much any big city. Living in a large building where the residents don't know/recognize/see each other will help. turtle6422(at)gmail(dot)com

  14. Bad enough to have someone after you, but to not even know why? That's cold.
