A Royal Murder

A Rebecca Keith mystery

Sandra Winter-Dewhirst

A Royal Murder
The duffle bag appeared to be made from expensive silk, embossed with what Rebecca thought was Chinese calligraphy. She was in no doubt that the bag contained a body. The protruding bloodied leg was a giveaway.

A macabre murder during the Women's Australian Open golf tournament at one of Australia's most prestigious golf courses sees food and wine journalist and amateur golfer Rebecca Keith on the murder trail once more. Fortunately, Rebecca's sleuthing takes her on a journey of eating and drinking through many of Adelaide's bars and restaurants. Little does Rebecca know that her visits to nearby Barossa Valley and Kangaroo Island will reveal clues that will become crucial in the hunt for a killer.

A Royal Murder, a light-hearted thriller full of intrigue and betrayal, features a full cast of eccentric characters set against the rich backdrop of South Australia and its lush food and wine culture.

'The novels are a light-hearted, in spite of their nature, and playful read, perfect for a Sunday afternoon. With a plate of South Australian cuisine, a glass or two of South Australian wine and these books to sink your teeth into, youíll be more than satisfied.' - Glen Christie, Glam Adelaide

'An easy to read, lighthearted murder mystery, with the food and wine topping the bill for interest.
