Legendary actress Charlotte Graham investigates a geisha’s death at an elegant seaside resort in this chilling cozy mystery that weaves together history, politics, and murder

When Commodore Matthew Calbraith Perry unlocked the door to Japan, American consul Townsend Harris fell in love with the legendary geisha Okichi. It was to be a doomed romance that ended with the scorned young woman hurling herself into the sea. More than a century later, the citizens of Newport, Rhode Island, celebrate Perry’s journey by inviting Okichi’s last surviving descendant, Okichi-mago, to visit their glittering resort. A famous geisha herself, Okichi-mago’s voyage to Newport is a great diplomatic affair—and it will end in tragedy.

In a chilling echo of her ancestor’s death, Okichi-mago falls from one of Newport’s famous cliffs. But Hollywood icon Charlotte Graham can’t believe that the refined beauty would take her own life, so she sets out to find the killer.

Mystery lovers with an interest in the history of Japan or old Hollywood will adore Murder on the Cliff. When the rich and famous tangle with murder, there’s no sleuth more suitable to working the case than the glamorous Charlotte Graham.

Murder on the Cliff is the 3rd book in the Charlotte Graham Mysteries, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order.
