Too Many Murders

A Carmine Delmonico Novel

  • customer reviews
Master of suspense and bestselling author Colleen McCullough returns with this novel starring Carmine Delmonico, set in the late sixties in a sleepy New England college town—now in paperback.

• Loyal fans: McCullough has an excellent track record across genres, and this intricately plotted page-turner represents some of her best work. The second installment in a three-book crime series, Too Many Murders features the newly married Carmine and Desdemona of On, Off, along with a new cast of richly drawn characters.

• Rich, historical detail: McCullough paints a portrait of a quintessential New England university town during the 1960s. From the stately buildings of the campus to the town’s greasy diner, from gender politics to Cold War tensions, McCullough brings to life a period that many of her readers remember.

• Murder in a small town: Twelve murders have taken place on one day. All are different, and no victim is connected to any of the others. At the same time, Delmonico finds himself pitted against the mysterious Ulysses, a spy giving armaments secrets to the Russians. Are the murders and espionage somehow linked?

I concede defeat. Your $100,000 has been placed in your room at college, as stipulated in your letter of March 29th. I will ensure that my presence in college seems innocent if I am detected. Please do not attempt to obtain more money from me. My pockets are empty.

Yours sincerely, Motor Mouth


Evan Pugh’s hands were shaking as he read this missive, put in his pigeonhole in a plain white envelope bearing his name and address typed with a carbon ribbon, like the letter. The dark square aperture of his pigeonhole... see more
