The Black Orchid Mystery

By James R. Nelson

Crime & mystery | Paperback, eBook, Audiobook


Bruised and sore from the previous night’s activities, Private Detective Archie Archibald is finally convinced that he has had enough of Fort Lauderdale’s violent criminal element. The quiet, seaside community of Vero Beach seems like the perfect place to start over. Just weeks after his arrival, the area’s wealthiest woman, eighty-four year old Clara Silverman, mysteriously vanishes from her gated estate, and Archie is asked to take on the case. Sixteen hundred miles away, in Michigan’s remote Upper Peninsula, John Barrington gets a mysterious call asking him about an aunt he thought had passed away years before. As Archie digs deeper into Mrs. Silverman’s disappearance, he discovers that the laid-back beach town he has escaped to holds plenty of secrets of its own. It doesn't take long before both Archie and John are caught up in a dangerous web of deceit, kidnapping, and murder. As the body count mounts, Archie knows he doesn't have much time to solve the Black Orchid mystery before he, and the people closest to him, become the next victims.
