Was it something she wrote?

Missing Alibi, 2nd book in Faukon Abbey Mysteries series. An author is found dead after a party. Was it something she wrote?
Missing Alibi – When lies turn deadly, secrets kill

That’s the question investigators, DI Greene, DC Ford, and their journalist friend Carter are asking, when a popular author of mysteries, romance and erotica is found dead after a party. Were her new stories based on facts rather than fiction? Did the erotic series she had published make someone angry enough to kill? 

DI Green, DC Ford, and Carter, have to cover two continents to unmask the truth and solve the crimes—the world they find is filled with people better at making up a story than telling the truth. Together, they find their way through the tangled web of lies and deceit and discover the lengths people can go to keep their secrets hidden. Can they uncover what lies beneath?

Reviews of “Missing Alibi”:

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “A welcome throwback to the days of intriguing murder mysteries that didn’t rely on sex and violence to disguise thinly veiled plots, Missing Alibi proves a welcome sequel to A. K. Lakelett’s ‘Remember Me?’. A timely and classic blend of suspense laced with one twist after another it’s one of those rare offerings that actually encourages the reader to solve the crime. Dense with plot intricacies, thick with atmosphere, and packed with a well-nuanced ensemble of characters it’s hard to be innovative in such a popular genre but as with Remember Me, Lakelett does just that. On this level, she delivers a taught narrative that elevates the Faukon Abbey Mysteries to the next level whilst typically strong character development sees Greene, Ford and Carter continue to develop as both eclectic and endearing protagonists. Missing Alibi continues to build on an original theme and one that would transition well to other mediums. It is highly recommended.” BookViral

“Ms. Lakelett’s plotting is devious and there is more than one candidate for villain in the running, which always makes the story more interesting, albeit more complicated. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and heartily recommend it to mystery lovers everywhere.” Amazon Reviewer

Readers' Favorite five stars

5-star review by Reader’s Favorite:

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ A.K Lakelett has created a classic whodunnit that will keep you guessing and test your detective skills. As the characters navigate a tangled web of lies, Missing Alibi includes a touch of romance and some light humor in the descriptions of the detectives’ and Jimmy’s date nights. Feasting on gourmet Swedish meatballs in a classic English pub and exposure to the dirty secrets of an errant husband add interest. The author has adopted an unusual approach to telling the story by switching points of view between the two detectives and the journalist, but the technique works well to keep readers hooked and guessing. While not a shock, the ending is deeply satisfying. Overall, Missing Alibi is a thoroughly enjoyable read. Lovers of Midsomer Murders, Morse, and other British detective stories are likely to want to read the series, and possibly look for more of A.K. Lakelett’s mystery masterpieces.

In the third book, “Death of a Well-Travelled Man” trouble is brewing in Faukon Abbey as Gwedrow Glassworks plans layoffs, and a pillar of community is found dead.


While the books can be read individually, you’ll get to know the characters better if you start with the first book, “Remember Me?”.  And you can find out more about Faukon Abbey, in here.
