American Lori Brill thought she'd have a pleasant, uneventful vacation in London visiting her granddaughter, Cate.

Lori's trip started out even better than she could have imagined when she ran into Josh, her old high-school boyfriend, in line for the same flight agt the airport--resulting in an unexpected night of passion in a London hotel room. Lori was all smiles as she stepped out of the shower the next morning, ready to slip back into Josh's arms--until she saw his bloody corpse lying in the bed where they had made love only a few short hours before.

The London police naturally suspect Lori of murdering her lover, but the case becomes more complicated when it is discovered that international ladies' man and real estate mogul Josh has swindled millions of dollars from hundreds of people--a fact that broadens the case beyond the Scotland Yard team led by Inspector Geoffry Holmes and brings in American FBI agent Jordan Gould.

Also on the case are Lori's granddaughter Cate, and Cate's fiance Joseph, two London solicitors. Complicating matters are Cate and Jordan Gould's growing mutual attraction as the investigation progresses; another growing mutual attraction between Lori and Inspector Holmes; and Lori's family's unexpected connection to Joseph's father, Lord Roger Lunt, and to the wealthy German nobleman Baron Joseph Braun and the horry of the Holocaust.

So who killed Josh? Was it Josh's beautiful girlfriend Suzi, who unexpectedly appears in London? Was it Josh's Chinese financial backers? Was it British mobsters, led by the evil Roland McKeifer, who kidnamp Lori in an attempt to find Josh's hidden millions? Was it Baron Braun, who summons Lori to Germany to tell her a 70-year-old secret? Was it someone whose money had been stolen or heart had been broken by Josh? Or was it someone else. Find out in Murder Across the Ocean.


Excerpt

She stood in the shower enjoying the water cascading over her body, feeling sensuous and alive again. She ran the bar of soap over every part of her naked skin, appreciating the fullness of her breasts and the mature expanse of her hips.

She turned off the water and stepped out of the shower. As she reached for her towel she though she heard some noise coming from the bedroom. Dismissing it she said to herself, Josh must have turned the television on.

She ran her tongue over her lips as she repeated the name Josh. Looking at her reflection in the mirror she realized she was glowing. Yes, she thought, last night, with Josh, was almost as wonderful as it was when I lost my virginity to him at my senior high school prom fifty years ago. At that moment she felt like a 17 year old girl instead of a grandmother.

After toweling she dappled herself with perfume, put on her expensive flowered silk robe and stepped out of the bathroom into the luxurious world famous Savoy Hotel suite’s bedroom. Alarmed by the stench of gun shot powder, and possibly blood, she slowly edged into the rest of the room, and cautiously called his name, “Josh”.

He didn’t answer. When she approached the bed she saw him, and she gasped in disbelief. His body was hanging off the bed and one side of his face was blown to bits. Skin, bone, and blood were everywhere. She ran out of the room, screaming as loud as she could.
