The Bali Mystery – An intoxicating blend of mystery, missing person, and Moore
Amelia Moore Detective Series by Linda Weaver Clarke
Amelia has been finding people for a while, and two years ago hired Rick Bonito. She is a type “A” business first personality. He is a type “B” life first hunk. There relationship is the very definition of opposites attract.
The story follows Amelia and Rick to Bali looking for a man that mysteriously disappeared early one morning. Their only clues are a vague personal journal and a travel brochure.
Bribery, car chases, guns, kidnapping, and hi-tech gadgetry work against the two detectives, who must decide if the two scary men in black suits are good or bad guys.
The character and setting descriptions are blended into the story and easily create strong visuals for the reader. Suspense is sprinkled artfully throughout the book. This is that perfect book for a snowy weekend or the beach—if you were lucky enough to get tickets before the blizzard shut down the airport. I read it in one Saturday sitting and was thoroughly entertained.
Linda presents this well written cozy mystery with a nice balance of romantic scenes and detective work. It is for young-adult and adult readers. Rated PG.

As a young boy at family gatherings, I recall listening to the men after a meal. The opinions around the subjects of politics, car brands, hippies, and rock n roll filled the room with energy like aromatic smoke from a pipe. But, when the story telling began everyone found a seat or patch of floor. We sat for hours absorbing the stories, fact or fiction, that shaped who we became and it strengthened our imaginations. Fifty years later I know that a world without imagination would be pretty boring.
Winter’s Thief is the first of a four book series. Soft cover books available at your favorite Internet bookstore, or at the website www.AndeanWhite.com. The e-book version is available at Amazon.com.
