New Indie Book Release: Death In Vermilion (Barbara Elle)

New Indie Book Release:
Death In Vermilion - Barbara Elle
Mystery (273 Pages - May 2018)

Death In Vermilion has a cast of female characters as only a woman can write them with realism, but without sentimentality. Readers are drawn into a world of women that marries absurdity and menace, in a ‘Hitchcockian’ voice that’s sarcastic, yet sympathetic.

About the Book

Death In Vermilion (Barbara Elle)
Click to Read an Excerpt

The greater crime may be betrayal, not murder.

“There was no glance more cutting or cruel.”

Those eyes belong to artist Leila Goodfriend, momentarily distracted from laying down the bones of a painting by Iris McNeil Thorton, the noisy, unlikeable artist in the studio upstairs. When it turns out the thuds were Iris' dead body hitting the floor, Leila becomes obsessed: who murdered Iris?

The other Red Barn Cooperative artists—competitive, jealous and hypocritical—are all prime suspects. They all hated Iris. “An artist owes his life to his art,” Iris said. Iris was good for a laugh.

But no one is laughing now.
