Donuts and Deceit

P. B. Alden

Vigilante or Hero?


It's a fine line.


Indulge in a delectable literary treat with Donuts and Deceit. Set against the charming backdrop of a small North Carolina town, this mystery unveils a tasty concoction of humor, unexpected twists, and a sprinkle of suspense.


Meet Walter and Martha, a couple whose years of wedded bliss have turned into a comedy of irritation. Walter's knack for fabricating tall tales and his dangerous gambling habit has become a well-guarded secret - one he's desperate to keep hidden from his long-suffering wife, Martha. On the flip side, Martha is weary of Walter's antics and yearns for a taste of adventure beyond their mundane life.


Amidst the quirky cast of neighbors, one individual emerges as the unsung hero, righting the wrongs that fester in the heart of the community. At first, these deeds seem like innocent acts of goodwill, but as tensions escalate, they lead to an unexpected and chilling crescendo: murder.


Follow the twists and turns of Donuts and Deceit, unravel the web of lies, and uncover the truth cleverly concealed beneath layers of gossip and gossip-worthy behavior.

Dive into an enticing literary delight that melds the charm of a cozy mystery with the spine-tingling excitement of a thrilling twist. Donuts and Deceit will keep you guessing until the last page, proving that darkness can lurk where you least expect it, even in the most peaceful neighborhoods.
