Overview

The Laurel Highlands seem idlyllic, but for Trooper First Class Jim Duncan and Fayette Count assistan public defender Sally Case, they're anything but.

It's the first-ever home brew competition sponsored by The Copper Pot – a popular local bar, and anticipation is running high with a grand prize of cash and inclusion in the catalog for a local microbrewery waiting for the winner. But on the eve of the competition, murder threatens to disrupt the festitivies.

Damon Collingsworth, a student of marketing, was acknowledged to be a brilliant amateur brew master. He was also rude, ambitious, cocky, obnoxious, and general a pain to be around. When he's found dead in the basement of The Copper Pot, right next to a new brew recipe for the competition, nobody is completely surprised. It was only a matter of time before Damon's attitude got him in trouble. But murder? And how? Poison appears to be the most likely instrument of death, but who would Damon let get close enough to him to administer the deadly toxin? It doesn't seem possible that Damon Collingsworth really so distasteful that someone would murder him. And beer aficianados want to know: just what was the "secret ingredient" in his prize-winning brew?

A rare Friday night ruined, Duncan has to assist his barracks rival, Corporal "Golden Gary" Sheffield, in uncovering Damon's killer, hopefully before the publicity murder's his favorite bar's future. In the process, Duncan gets a chance to get a little closer to the attractive Sally. But will her mother's prejudice kill any chances of romance between two members of the criminal justice system who would seem to be an unlikely couple?

"A Brew to Die For" is the fifth installment in THE LAUREL HIGHLANDS MYSTERIES.

About the Author

Liz Milliron is the crime fiction pen name for Mary Sutton.

Mary has been making up stories, and creating her own endings for other people's stories, for as long as she can remember. After ten years, she decided that making things up was far more satisfying than writing software manuals, and took the jump into fiction.

She writes the HERO'S SWORD middle-grade fantasy series as M.E. Sutton and finds a lot of inspiration in the lives of her own kids. A lifelong mystery fan, she also writes crime fiction, including THE LAUREL HIGHLANDS MYSTERIES, under the pen name Liz Milliron. Her short fiction has been published at Uppagus.com, Mystericale.com, and in LUCKY CHARMS: 12 CRIME TALES (December 2013).

Like her LAUREL HIGHLANDS characters, Mary lives in Southwestern PA (but, unfortunately, she doesn't have a dog). She is a member of Sisters in Crime.
