Re­lease to hon­our spe­cial duo

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

BRIGID Ge­orge’s new mur­der mys­tery, is set in a fic­tional Bud­dhist monastery on Flagstaff Hill in Port Dou­glas.

The ebook will be re­leased on Oc­to­ber 19, the same day two peo­ple spe­cial to Brigid will be farewelled at Four Mile Beach.

When Brigid told Sylvia and Eric Barnes the set­ting for her fourth mur­der mys­tery was to be Port Dou­glas, they re­vealed it was their favourite place in the world.

Sylvia and Eric, who mi­grated to Aus­tralia from Eng­land in 1969, had once been Brigid’s in-laws and re­mained part of her life even af­ter her di­vorce from their son.

Sadly, they both passed away be­fore the book was fin­ished; Sylvia in 2016 at age 90 and Eric ear­lier this year at age 92.

Brigid will hon­our them by re­leas­ing on the an­niver­sary of their wed­ding.

On the same day, the Barnes sib­lings will bid their par­ents a fi­nal good­bye by spread­ing Sylvia and Eric’s ashes, as was their wish, at Four Mile Beach. Read­ers of

will glean a sense of the area’s beauty and unique en­vi­ron­ment as well as test their puz­zle solv­ing skills in this clas­sic who­dunit.

The dead body of a Bud­dhist monk is found at the bot­tom of a cliff early one morn­ing in a small town in Aus­tralia’s Far North Queens­land.

Four months later with the killer still at large, Dusty Kent, in­ves­tiga­tive jour­nal­ist renowned for her abil­ity to solve cold cases, is called in.

The book is cur­rently avail­able for pre-or­der on ama­zon.com.

Brigid Ge­orge is the pen name of Ama­zon #1 best-sell­ing au­thor JB Row­ley.
