Don't miss Greetings From Ventnor City, the newest title in Jane Kellys Meg Daniels mystery series from Information Today, Inc.’s sister company, Plexus Publishing, Inc.

Greetings From Ventnor City book cover

"Greetings From Ventnor City has it all: a gripping mystery, twists and turns, and Kelly’s signature humor! Don’t miss this one."
—Lisa Regan, USA TODAY and Wall Street Journal bestselling crime fiction author
 
Meg Daniels, who has solved several local mysteries thanks to her amateur sleuthing, meets a woman asking for help in learning the fate of the sister she last knew as a 19-year-old who ran away from her Ventnor home in 1968. Rock idol Xander Frost, who has been trying to make friends with Meg in the hopes of learning how ordinary people live, persuades Meg to take the case, and the unlikely duo travel up and down the Jersey Shore and beyond to interview the people who had known Sarah Johnson best. As they retrace her steps—and Meg gets a taste of the rock star life—they discover that there might be a sinister reason the trail has been cold for so long. Was she a rebellious teenager who got swept up in the counterculture and broke free of her restrictive family? Or did someone want her out of the way ... permanently?
 
"Meg Daniels is in it again, and readers are in for yet another exhilarating ride of twists and turns. Greetings From Ventnor City had me alternately laughing and cringing at Meg’s trademark wit, unusual experiences, and unerring ability to dig out the truth, come hell or high water."
—Jane Gorman, author of the Adam Kaminski mystery series
