Hiding in Plain Sight (First World Publication)

Mary Ellis (Author)


Introducing private investigator Kate Weller in the first of the brand-new Marked for Retribution mystery series.

On the run from a troubled past, Kate Weller, the newest member of Price Investigations, covers her tracks, changes her name and takes a case in Charleston, South Carolina, where she can hide in plain sight.

Renting a charming room with a waterfront view, Kate sets about trying to locate her adopted client's natural siblings, only to find more questions than answers when she eventually tracks down a long-lost sister. Meanwhile, her new landlord won't stop sticking his nose into her case. As far as Kate's concerned, Eric Manfredi should focus on whatever competitor is bent on ruining his family business. But when petty vandalism turns lethal, and Eric's father is arrested for murder, Kate determines to prove his innocence. Can she find the real culprit before a killer from her own past tracks her down?

"This should appeal to readers looking for mystery with a touch of religion as they follow the exploits of sometimes naive and headstrong Kate"--Booklist
"Ellis spins off her 'Secrets of the South' series with a new protagonist working for the same detective agency. As in her previous books, the author joins romantic suspense with faith-based overtones. Ellis's readers will enjoy the overlap, while others may find the immature but spirited Jill to be an awkward sleuth with good intentions"--Library Journal
