Often mysteries and thrillers arise out of seemingly happenstance circumstances in unexpected places like bookstores.

Two used and rare book dealers are swept into a whirlwind of blackmail and murder when a woman shows up with a mysterious manuscript and questions about her missing husband in B. F. Monachino’s new mystery “Manuscript for Murder” (published by Archway Publishing).

Harry and Maggie find themselves cast in the role of literary sleuths when they are asked by a mysterious client to investigate an unsigned manuscript for attribution purposes. The problem is there is already another person claiming to be the author who has published an almost identical book. In the course of their investigation they find themselves caught up in a web of blackmail, money laundering and murder.

“Often mysteries and thrillers arise out of seemingly happenstance circumstances in unexpected places like bookstores. The key to ‘who done it’ really lies in the unearthing of buried secrets,” Monachino says, adding that her book. “is a mystery within a mystery that has dark undertones and touches on serious moral issues that still resonate — the uncovering of Nazi war criminals who reside in the US and the discovery of who brought them here and how.”
