The Riddles of Hillgate

Zoey Kane is known around Riverside for making risky purchases. When her daughter Claire learns a most recent investment is eighty acres on the haunted side of town, she is simply flabbergasted. Amazement takes over the whole community, however, when an old mansion is discovered deep within trees. After the estate is turned into a popular hotel, no one could have expected just how risky this purchase would be.

The Z and C Mysteries are a fresh, unique series, where the mother and daughter can kick butt in heels if they have to. The situations can get very scary, but nothing is ever too gory. The reading is clean, while also vibrant. It's just plain fast-paced fun.





Back up on the third floor, Zo was making lots of wonderful friends. She soon spotted her lovely daughter coming through the doors. “Claire!” She waved her over. “Claire!”
Claire made her way through the crowd. “Hello, Mother.” She smiled.
“Hi, I would like you to meet this hairy little fellow,” Zo introduced.
“Me meme me mememe,” the walking wig said cheerfully.
“Hello.” Claire bowed. “Mother, I have someone for you to meet. Meet Count Dracula.” She turned to look at him, but he wasn’t there.
“Where is he?” Zo asked.
“I don’t know. We were just walking together. I must have lost him.”
“Maybe he turned into a bat,” Zo kidded.
Claire was obviously very disappointed.
“It’s okay,” Zo continued, “I’m sure you’ll catch up with him again before the night is over.”
“Attention, attention!” Ms. Fanny Gwen cut the music for a moment. With microphone still in hand, she declared, “Now things are gonna get wild!”
“Things weren’t already wild?” Claire asked herself.
Fanny took the lead guitar from one of her band members and wailed on it. It was as if her song was impromptu, never rehearsed, and it worked. The drums and bass came in to help her once she got into a song much of the audience recognized. Claire couldn’t stop watching Fanny’s fingers fly and her body gyrate.
Fanny grabbed hold of the standing mike and suddenly dropped to the floor, guitar still in one hand. Her whole body convulsed. Claire’s eyebrows furrowed.
“She really gets into it,” Zo commented.
The guitar playing ceased and there was a sudden loud screech from the amp and then a loud boom. The crowd grew silent and still. Fanny continued to gyrate. A puff of smoke seemed to come from her big rock ‘n’ roll hairdo.
The audience gasped, and a band member called out in an English accent, “Fanny! Oh, no!!! Someone call an ambulance!”
