Murder By Drone: Biddy And Justin Series Novella – Fifth In Series by Pamela M. Arnold
By: Strategic Book Publishing & Rights Co.
In the new Biddy and Justin Series Novella, Murder by Drone, elderly detective Biddy is nearly taken out by a drone while she rides her horse Fizzy.
"A weird-looking black creature seemed to be teetering on one of the pine trees. Fizzy yanked at the reins, half rearing. Biddy saw the alarming creature zooming toward them, wings spread! Fizzy whirled and bolted, galloping downhill, the attacker swooping and pouncing on them. Something sliced across Biddy's head and back. She felt the thud, which actually dented her riding helmet, knocking her off the saddle."
When Biddy wakes up in the hospital, Justin is there to question her. The mature Australian espionage agents are once again embroiled in an active case. Badly bruised and nursing a broken wrist, Biddy insists on going home to start investigating the wayward drone. What Biddy and Justin discover could save lives, as they try to stop an attack on a holiday crowd by a swarm of drones.
Previous books in the series are Pacific Incident 9-11-13, Murder in Tusmore Park, The Procurers, and Frenzy in Frome Road.
Upon retirement at 75 from her successful businesses in modelling, marketing, personal development, and childcare, Pamela M. Arnold is enjoying her retirement by writing. In her youth, the mystery writer enjoyed dressage, water skiing, property restoration, and oil painting. She married her second husband on her 70th birthday, affectionately calling him "an old suitor, in both senses of the word." The German House described in this story is based on a century-old property that the author owned and took 12 years to restore. It took only 20 minutes to be razed by the Ash Wednesday fire of 1983. As in the story, the author won both National Trust and State Heritage awards. Antiques were lost, but the horses were saved, as was the family dog. Badly singed, the author says of their dog, "We knew he was ours because he had one blue and one brown eye."
