Killing in C Sharp - by Alexia Gordon


Killing in C Sharp: A Gethsemane Brown Mystery, Volume 3
Genre: Paranormal Mystery
Publisher: Henery Press
Date of Publication: March 6, 2018
Pages: 288


She saved Carraigfaire—but can she save her friends? Gethsemane Brown fought off an attack by a sleazy hotel developer who wanted to turn her Irish cottage into a tourist trap. Now she must face a vengeful ghost determined to exact revenge for her murder centuries ago. This ghost’s wrath spares no one—not Gethsemane’s students, Inspector Niall O’Reilly, fellow teacher Frankie Grennan, or a group of ghost hunters descended on Dunmullach to capture proof ghosts exist. Proof Gethsemane has to quash to keep Eamon, her resident ghost and friend, from becoming an internet sensation. As if a spiteful specter wasn’t bad enough, a crooked music reviewer turns up dead in the opera house orchestra pit, a famous composer is arrested for the crime, and Gethsemane must team up with a notorious true-crime author to clear his name. If she doesn’t, friends will die, a ghost she cares about will never know peace, and she’ll star in a final act gruesome enough for any opera.

The Blarney Stone may be the most well-known attraction at Blarney Castle, but it’s far from the only one on order. If you visit the castle and grounds, you’ll find battlements, caves, dungeons, a rock close, and gardens. Beautiful gardens. One garden, in particular, earned a spot on my “must see” list during my September 2016 Ireland tour—The Blarney Castle Poison Garden. A modern re-planting of an ancient physic garden, it represents a real-world example of the fictional poison garden in the Gethsemane Brown Mysteries, right down to the metal cages surrounding some of the more notorious plants. The bright colors and lush greenery hide deadly secrets.







writer since childhood, I put literary endeavors on hold to finish medical school and Family Medicine residency training. Medical career established, I returned to writing fiction. I completed SMU's Writer’s Path program in Dallas, Texas. Henery Press published my first novel, Murder in G Major, book one of the Gethsemane Brown mysteries, in September 2016. Book two, Death in D Minor, released July 11, 2017. Book three, Killing in C Sharp, comes out March 6, 2018. Murder in G Major won the Lefty Award for Best Debut Novel, was nominated for an Agatha Award for Best New Novel and was selected one of Suspense Magazine's Best Debuts.

I listen to classical music, drink whiskey, and blog at Miss Demeanors, voted one of Writers' Digest magazine's 101 best websites for writers, and Femmes Fatales.

  1. I love this series despite having no interest in ghosts/paranormal. Music was the hook for me along with humor and delightful characters.
