MURDER PACKS A SUITCASE

Mallory Marlowe is ready to turn a corner - one lined with palm trees, plastic pink flamingo lawn ornaments, and snack bars shaped like giant ice cream cones. Thanks to her new job as travel writer for the New York magazine The Good Life, recently widowed Mallory is zipping around Orlando, assigned to rediscover the glory days of "old Florida." It's the first of what she hopes will be many exciting adventures . . . but she's about to discover that the Sunshine State has a dark side.

Settled in among the faux volcanoes and tiki torches of the Polynesian Princess Hotel, Mallory is on the lookout for quirky attractions like alligator farms and pirate-themed dinners hidden amid the glitzy theme parks. But she's not prepared to find a cranky journalist speared to death in the Bali Ballroom - or to find herself a suspect in his murder. With her trip coming to a close, Mallory has no choice but to figure out if one of her fellow travel writers is a killer. Because if she doesn't get out of Florida soon, her career - and her life - are about to come to a dead end.

Includes Mallory's article for The Good Life, with tips and reviews of real Florida attractions

Murder Packs A Suitcase

TOO RICH AND TOO DEAD

Have suitcase, will sleuth...

Mallory Marlowe, travel writer for the Good Life magazine, heads to Colorado to answer the question: Can nonskiers have fun in Aspen? It's also a chance to visit a now rich and famous high-school classmate, Carly Cassidy Berman. Cheerleader, homecoming queen, and class president, Carly had it all then and still does - a sprawling mountainside home, an adoring husband, and a multimillion-dollar business centered around her super-exclusive Tavaci Springs spa. But not all is what it seems in Carly's golden life, because within twenty-four hours of Mallory's arrival, Carly's corpse turns up in a mud bath.

Against a dazzling backdrop of majestic ski slopes, ritzy boutiques, and slumming celebrities, Mallory suddenly discovers that Aspen's main attraction is a dazzling array of suspects - one of whom is eager to see this accidental sleuth's travels come to an end. As Mallory begins to uncover the secrets hidden amid Aspen's snow, will a desperate killer make this playground for the pampered and privileged Mallory's final destination?

Includes Mallory's article for the Good Life, with tips and reviews of real Aspen attractions!
