Today’s Free Kindle eBook: Murder in the Queen’s Boudoir (Auguste Didier Mystery Book 11)
Auguste Didier is back. But this time, he’s chasing ghosts…It seemed a wonderful idea at the beginning: a staged scene to tempt the ghost of tragic Marie Antoinette into showing herself at Le Petit Trianon . And what better way to do so but to recreate a day in her life? Surely no self-respecting ghost would be able to resist? Although for that matter, neither would a woman with revenge in her heart, nor a man with a weakness for a wager…There have been several reported sightings at Le Petit Trianon over the years and, on the fateful day, no fewer than three Marie-Antoinettes are seen.But the dead body found in the late queen’s bed-chamber after lunch is no illusion – and nor is the second body found slaughtered in the garden.Could the two deaths be connected?With everyone under suspicion, Auguste Didier, takes it upon himself to shelve his role as the king’s chef to help an acquaintance, Inspector Chesnais. However, Auguste’s history throws little confidence in his direction. Chesnais is tasked with investigating the crimes, but Auguste has his own plans …With his wife Tatiana’s help, Auguste focuses on the group. Someone amongst them is a murderer… Murder in the Queen’s Boudoir is a classic murder mystery, perfect for fans of Agatha Christie.
