A director dies--murder mystery fiction novel

     The Sheriff and local Police Captain are tasked with unraveling the clues which point to any number of viable suspects--the ambitious assistant director who now becomes the head director; the local unit president who had a major disagreement with the victim; the tournament co-chairs; the other directors; and on and on. Through all the twists and turns, the reader is challenged, along with the investigators, to figure out "whodunit," how and why, before the unexpected ending. The obvious isn't always obvious--or is it?


reviews (3-4-5 stars)

Page Turner

A Director Dies is a page turner. I couldn't put it down. The characters were real and until the very end I kept wondering who did it. A must read for every bridge player and a fascinating read for mystery lovers. Ruth Howard is a talented author!

Very Good

I have to think it is more interesting if you are a bridge player and understand the politics involved.


You will love following the characters in this story.
