Murder for Beauty

A business venture is not a walk in the park, much more when numerous companies compete to get on top of the pyramid.

That is what Murder for Beauty by Beatrice Cayzer is all about.

She is an avid writer, and most of her novels were inspired by of her travels. In Oxfordshire, she wrote The Princes and the Princesses of Wales, and in Guernsey, she wrote The Royal World of Animals. Returning to the United States, she wrote nine Rick Harrow novels.

In Murder for Beauty, the protagonist, sleuth Happy Arrow’s life is turned upside down as she is entangled with a serial killer who plans to take over the cosmetics and perfume industry by killing off top executives of rival companies.
