Carmen Will is the author of Doubly Departed, the first in her Amanda Winters mysteries. Will, a freelance writer and editor whose novel, A Practicum for Murder, was a finalist in Poisoned Pen Press’s 2013 Discover Mystery contest, lives in Sun Lakes (Cottonwood), Arizona, with her husband Wayne.
In Doubly Departed, young Nathan Reynolds drowned in the Salt River near Arizona’s Tempe Town Lake, but someone shot him in the head before he died. Amanda Winters, Nathan’s Godmother and best friend to Nathan’s mother Dinah, believes that his murder may be linked to the 10 year old disappearance of Nathan’s father, corporate attorney Tom Reynolds. While fighting a debilitating panic disorder, Amanda sets out to help local homicide detective Roy Staatz solve Nathan’s murder. With help from her son, husband and quirky Aunt Sally, Amanda charts a course that leads her group of intrepid mystery hunters on a wild chase across the Mexican border, into an abandoned mine, and even onto a pilotless plane soaring high above the mountains.
