Jack Dunn is a freelance writer and struggling novelist. He also has a peculiar ability to locate lost possessions. When he learns of a treasure chest hidden as part of an eccentric man’s game — solve the riddle, find the gold — Jack joins the hunt. It’s the one last adventure he needs to shake himself out of his mid-life crisis. But the quest for the treasure is only the beginning. And the ending could be deadly. Be careful what you wish for, Jack.
'Beautifully written! A thoroughly enjoyable multi-layered mystery, written with intelligence and humor. I found the husband and wife team reminiscent of Dashiell Hammett’s Nick and Nora. Highly recommend!'
Author of the award-winning The Alaska Thrillers series, the disaster thriller Deadly Shore, the Yestertime time travel series, the Eden Rising post-apocalyptic series, and the Lies mystery series.
A pleasant day at the lake turns ominous when Jack Dunn and his wife, Martha Healey, find a body on the beach. Circumstances surrounding the current death are similar to one that happened thirty years ago in the same location. Did someone get away with murder? Twice?
As they are reluctantly drawn further into the mystery, complicated friendships and secrets from the past place Jack and Marty in danger.
Will they be able to untangle the web of lies before the killer makes the final move?
Jack Dunn and his wife Martha Healey lead quiet lives. However, their peaceful existence is shattered when a famous actor unexpectedly shows up at their door. Disheveled and agitated, he tells a chilling tale about a mysterious stranger and a deadly pact.
Jack and Marty find themselves drawn into a web of murder and dark secrets, where the line between truth and lies becomes blurred. As they race against time to uncover the facts, they realize the price for knowledge may cost them their lives.
WHAT READERS ARE SAYING
Maggie McChristie’s debut novel, All’s Well That Ends, shows that Maggie is already an accomplished and entertaining writer. The novel blends action, mystery, and suspense with clever dialogue, engaging characters, and a dash of well-chosen literary allusions. Add hidden treasure, meditation tips, murder, pirate lore, and a touch of married bliss, and you’ve got yourself one heck of a good story. Already looking forward to Maggie’s next book!
The action keeps coming, even after you wonder how much more Jack and Marty can take. McChristie has a way of bringing her characters to life and taking you on their adventure.
I loved the Quote Game, the relationship between Jack and Marty, and Jack’s battle of wits with Kyp! (The sheriff is a good sparing partner too.) The hunt for the treasure has surprising twists and an unexpected ending. All’s Well That Ends was a thoroughly enjoyable read!
This novel includes adventure/mystery yet also some heartfelt family stories. Very enjoyable reading!
In A Midsummer Night’s Murder, Jack and Marty find a body on the beach. A reunion with friends reveals connections to another death. The past is about to catch up. These books are perfect for readers who enjoy a multilayered mystery with clever conversation, engaging characters, humor, and a dash of romance.
A fun, intelligent, and complex follow-up to All’s Well That Ends, involving murders decades apart. Deception and lies abound, keeping the reader guessing to the end. Maggie McChristie knows how to tell a story that grabs you from the beginning and doesn’t let go!
Great characters! A complicated web of lies, disturbing memories from the past, and present day threats put Jack and Marty in danger. The subplot blends nicely with the main mystery and leads to a surprising conclusion. This book has well-written characters and a complex mystery that kept me guessing til the end! Highly recommended!
Best writing! Seriously, this author is the most articulate and descriptive without being repetitive…I was intrigued the whole time I read.
Occasionally a cozy mystery comes along that entertains and educates at a higher than high school level and this was one of them (for me).
