About the Novel:

Divorced and retired, Buffalo police officer Bethany Judge is finally free to fulfill her dreams. Recently certified as a beer expert, she travels to Munich, Germany, for Oktoberfest. Hobnobbing with local brewers, her vacation is a dream come true … until it becomes a nightmare. 

Caught up in the excitement, Bethany over-imbibes and wakes on a train with a hangover and a dead man and no clue what happened. She’s initially a suspect, but soon, a single murder escalates to a series of crimes, including the deaths of two brewery workers. Are the deaths related?

Retired and in a foreign country, Bethany can’t run around kicking doors down and chasing suspects, but she does agree to do a bit of spying. These multiple murders are just a smoke screen to cover a much larger conspiracy—one that threatens both Germany and the world. And to think, all Bethany wanted was some beer.
