"A true page turner...I found the plot fascinating, and de Hahn builds the tension and suspense perfectly to a satisfying conclusion. I was left wanting to read more about Agnes, and I am looking forward to her next adventure!"—Charles Todd on Swiss Vendetta

Swiss-American police officer Agnes Lüthi is on leave in Lausanne, Switzerland, recovering from injuries she sustained in her last case, when an old colleague invites her to the world’s premier watch and jewelry trade show at the grand Messe Basel Exhibition Hall. Little does Agnes know, another friend of hers, Julien Vallatton, is at the same trade show—and he’s looking for Agnes. Julien Vallatton was friends with Guy Chavanon, a master of one of Switzerland’s oldest arts: watchmaking. Chavanon died a week ago, and his daughter doesn’t believe his death was accidental. Shortly before he died, Chavanon boasted that he’d discovered a new technique that would revolutionize the watchmaking industry, and she believes he may have been killed for it. Reluctantly, Agnes agrees to investigate his death. But the world of Swiss watchmaking is guarded and secretive, and before she realizes it, Agnes may be walking straight into the path of a killer.

Tracee de Hahn's next mystery, A Well-Timed Murder, is another magnetic mystery that will engross readers from the opening page to the stunning conclusion.

Praise for A Well-Timed Murder

Praise for Swiss Vendetta

“Secret pasts and hidden motives abound as Inspector Agnes Luthi hunts for a killer in this elegant and suspenseful novel. Tense, atmospheric, and richly detailed, Swiss Vendetta is a gripping, multilayered mystery that will keep you guessinguntil the very end!”—Ashley Weaver, author of Murder at the Brightwell

"Fans of both contemporary and historcial mystery will devour this debut from Tracee de Hahn as her modern-day sleuth wades through secrets and deceptions in a centuries-old chateau."—Alyssa Maxwell, author of The Gilded Newport Mysteries

“Absorbing…De Hahn sets up a locked-room mystery with potential for rich interpersonal tensions. The rarefied, restrictive world of Swiss aristocracy provides a tantalizing backdrop, and Agnes—born to American parents, raised in Switzerland, and a widowed mother of three sons after herhusband’s recent suicide—is a strong series lead…Those who like a fireside readon a winter night will be pleased.”—Publishers Weekly

“This clever take on the locked-room mystery—a locked château, if you will—introduces readers to an appealing heroine in an unusualsetting in what will hopefully be a long series.”—Library Journal
