Proud to prepare this press release for my prolific writer wife and love of my life.
Carlsbad author, Karen Truesdell Riehl, a 2015 San Diego Book Awards winner for Helga: Growing up in Hitler's Germany, has published her ninth e-book: Deception's Sins: A Roger Sundbee Mystery, now available on Amazon Kindle, Barnes and Noble Nook, iPhone, iPad, PC, MAC and other digital devices. Her writing achievements are remarkable, given her lifelong battle with dyslexia. She was unable to read until the age of 10. Her first book was a memoir, Love and Madness, My Private Years with George C Scott, recounting her 30-year hidden romance with the international film star.
Deception's Sins is the second in a series featuring Roger Sundbee. The young tennis pro who left Indiana after uncovering a small town's hidden stories (Freedom's Sins), has moved on to Deception Island, ten miles by ferry from Seattle. It seemed the perfect place to start a new life. But when Zeke Perry's body is found on the beach with a rope around his neck, Roger, the island's newcomer and the last person to have been seen with Zeke alive, becomes the prime suspect.
In an early review, Jack Magnus for Readers' Favorite says this about Riehl's latest book. "Karen Truesdell Riehl's murder mystery is a droll and witty story with a fascinating location and a rich historical backdrop. She makes each person living on Deception Island seem real, with their own histories and dreams. The historical details woven into the plot are marvelous. I enjoyed reading Deception's Sins and hope to read other stories starring the multi-talented Roger Sundbee."
