Book Description

The Surreal Killer by Jerold Last

The Indie Book of the Day for 7th of September, 2013!

Genre: Mystery, Travel

A serial killer is leaving a trail of dead women across Chile, Peru, and Bolivia. The gruesome corpses all seem to have died in exactly the same macabre way. There may be a link to a small group of scientists who meet annually in different locations in the region. Roger Bowman and Suzanne Foster are asked by the local police to attend this year’s meeting of the group in Lima, Peru to try to find out who was present at the previous meetings when the murders occurred. And the reader is off on a fast paced pursuit of the killer through Lima, Cuzco, and Machu Picchu in Peru and Chile’s Atacama Desert. This is a true whodunit mystery novel set in an unusual and exotic locale.

Read Sample

The author is a scientist on the faculty of the University of California and a big fan of California mystery novels. He taught a popular Freshman Seminar on California Mystery novels for several years at UC Davis. A quick search of Amazon will turn up books and articles in biochemistry previously edited or authored by Jerry, but The Empanada Affair was his first novel. The subsequent novels in his Roger Bowman-Suzanne Foster South America mystery series, The Ambivalent Corpse, The Surreal Killer, and The Matador Murders are also available as Kindle e-books. Reader feedback is appreciated, so please take a few minutes to write a review of the books after you finish reading them.

The settings and locales for all of the South American mystery novels, The Empanada Affair, The Ambivalent Corpse, The Surreal Killer, and The Matador Murders are authentic; the author lived previously in Salta, Argentina and Montevideo, Uruguay for several months each, and selected several of the most interesting locations he found for Roger and Suzanne to visit. The Empanada Affair’s title comes from a local food served ubiquitously as an appetizer in the region. The Ambivalent Corpse take place in Montevideo and several of the countries surrounding Uruguay. The Surreal Killer visits Northern Chile’s Atacama Desert and Peru. The Matador Murders revisits Montevideo and visits Santiago, Chile, where the author has visited several times for collaborative research and teaching.

Jerry and his wife Elaine live in Northern California, where Elaine breeds prize-winning German Shorthaired Pointer dogs and enjoys being a grandmother to two granddaughters and a grandson.
