What's a cop to do?

By Alison Malkovich
From the Dinner Club Mysteries by Linda Wiken

What do you think is the worst thing that can happen to a cop? I’ll tell you because I’m a cop and it’s happened to me. Try finding the body of your soon-to-be ex in the back of your SUV!

I’ll tell you up front, I didn’t kill him. And I know that my fellow officers believe me but they have to be seen as impartial throughout the investigation. So, I’m of suspension with pay and having to twiddle my thumbs at home while everyone else looks for the real murderer.

By everyone, I mean my buds in the Culinary Capers Dinner Club, especially J.J. Tanner. I’ve often warned them to stay out of police business before, and while the professional part of me believes that, the scared, insecure friend wants their help.

You’d think things couldn’t get worse…but they do. Oh, man…they sure do.

I can’t go into more details right now but you can read all about it yourself when Marinating in Murder comes out next month.  Just remember, I didn’t do it. You believe me, don’t you?

Here's what an early review of Marinating in Murder by the RT Times says:

"Wiken’s third entry to the Dinner Club series is a clever twist on the classic whodunit… The book will have you guessing until the very end…. All in all, an intriguing read by Wiken.– RT Reviews

I hope you’ll consider pre-ordering a copy of Marinating in Murder  at
