Solving puzzles comes naturally to Annie Darling, cheerful owner of the Death on Demand mystery bookstore on the lovely sea island of Broward`s Rock. Annie is aided and abetted by her admiring husband, Max, who runs an unusual business that offers help to people in trouble. A recent death appears to be suicide, but Annie suspects murder. To solve the case, she unravels the mystery of a towel hidden at midnight in a gazebo, the lack of fingerprints on a crystal mug, blood on a teenager`s blue shirt, and the secret of a lovers` tryst. Annie believes she has set the perfect trap for a merciless killer until her cell phone rings and Death whispers in her ear.
