Homicidal Holiday

by Philip L. Nichols, Jr.

A mystery spoof of popular crime novels and television shows, Homicidal Holiday takes place in the swamps of Louisiana over a Halloween weekend murder party thrown by eccentric book publisher Elsa Craven and her assistant Ruth Hammond. She has invited her bestselling authors and they all must come in costume and behave as their characters. Attending this party is Devin Morguen the serial killer with a conscience, Prior Cuthbert the crime solving Franciscan Monk, Monsieur Arastede Harlequin a celebrated French detective with a heavily waxed moustache, love of fine food and most of all himself, Dr. Prudence Relics the brilliant forensic anthropologist and medical examiner and Abby Brice the celebrated vampire fiction writer.  Also attending are Sam Sportswalter the hard-hitting old school private eye, with Clark D’ Balfour  famed western author. Adding to the mix of eccentric characters, are Mother Petronia the voodoo priestess/cook of the house and the escaped “killer” gorilla haunting the grounds! It is a hilarious spoof of who done what and when.
