Deception at Castle Rock Excerpt and Giveaway from Anne Marie Stoddard

Author Anne Marie Stoddard is joining us this week with an excerpt and giveaway of Deception at Castle Rock, the second book in her well-reviewed Amelia Grace mystery series.  You can pick it up for 99 cents this week!  See below for details on how to win a signed copy of Deception at Castle Rock!

Anne Marie Stoddard

After making a quick run through the drive-thru at Java Joy, I sped over to Castle Rock and parked in the gravel along the side of the building, closest to the back entrance. Grabbing one of the chocolate raspberry scones from the bag, I nibbled the pastry as I made my way toward the back door.

To reach the rear entrance of the venue, I had to walk around Royal Flush’s black tour bus, which was now parked behind Castle Rock. Kat and I agreed to let the band keep the over-sized vehicle out back until they left on Sunday for their next tour stop. As I rounded the bus, I stopped short, frowning at the passenger’s side door. Why is the bus open? When I’d left Castle Rock the night before, Kat was about to shuttle the guys, Ginger, and Suzie back to their hotel. Maybe they forgot to close up the bus after loading their equipment. No way, I thought, shaking my head. The guys wouldn’t leave their instruments in an unlocked vehicle overnight.

A sense of unease crept over me as I approached the open door. What if a bum had wandered aboard? Or a thief? Don’t be ridiculous. I shook it off and stepped up onto the small set of stairs that led inside the tour bus.

I was immediately overwhelmed by a cloying, coppery odor. “What is that?” I asked aloud, wrinkling my nose. The inside of the bus was dark. I squinted, waiting for my eyes to adjust. “Hello?” I called. Either my imagination was playing some horror movie-style tricks on me, or someone—or some thing—responded with a muffled groan. Fear pricked at the hairs on my arms and neck. The noise had come from the back of the bus. Was someone back there?

There was a fleeting moment where I almost turned and bolted, figuring it would be safer to wait and inspect the bus when someone else had arrived, like Emmett. Or Reese. Or maybe a SWAT team. Then the low moaning noise sounded again, and I sucked in a breath. Something about it sounded oddly familiar. Curiosity got the better of me, and I began to move deeper into the bus’s interior.

I quietly inched my way past the black leather benches that lined the walls of the vehicle, and I sidestepped around the table that stuck out from the little breakfast nook. Digging into my purse, I produced a small can of pepper spray and a key chain that held a mini-flashlight. One finger hovered over the trigger of the can ready to unleash a cloud of pepper spray on anything that moved.

Before I could turn on the flashlight, my foot connected with something solid in the middle of the floor. With a startled cry, I dropped the can and the keychain as I toppled down, landing on something cold and sticky. The coppery smell grew stronger, and a feeling of nausea rolled over me. I fumbled around on the floor for my flashlight, but instead my fingers closed over something hard and smooth. I ran my hand around the object, trying to identify it. A shoe?

My pinky grazed against the cold metal of the mini-flashlight, and I reached for it. I clicked it on, illuminating the space in front of me. A shock wave of horror slammed through me. I screamed and scrambled to my feet, backing quickly toward the bus’s entrance. The hard object I’d felt before was a boot, all right—and it was still on the foot of Sid Malone’s corpse.
