In the south of France where hatred simmers in the heat, a man seemingly admired, and certainly feared, drops dead at a dinner party. All of the guests fall under suspicion, including Welsh-Canadian professor Cait Morgan. A criminologist who specializes in profiling victims, Cait sets out to solve the murder--and clear her name. Add to this the disappearance of an ancient Celtic gold collar said to be cursed and there you have the ingredients for a Nicoise salad of death, secrets, and lies. Will Cait find the killer before she too falls victim to a murderer driven by a surprising and disturbing motive?

The Corpse with the Silver Tongue is the first in the Cait Morgan mystery series, a classic whodunit series featuring the eccentric Professor Cait Morgan.

"Cait's enjoyable first outing should earn her a well-deserved encore." -- Publishers Weekly

"Lovers of puzzle plots should meet Professor Cait Morgan . . . A writer to watch." -- The Globe and Mail

Just finished reading this excellent story ... it was hard to put down. Cathy's writing made me feel as if she was sitting across the table with her drink in hand telling me about her latest adventure. I look forward to reading her next novel.

Very enjoyable. Loved the characters. Can't wait to read the next one.

Good first novel! I enjoyed Cait's sense of humour. Well worth following the next book; "The corpse with the golden nose".
Entertaining look at the Cote d'Azur with a Canadian connection.

It was great to read a book by an author from my hometown. This mystery was a bit reminiscent of Agatha Christie, a really enjoyable read. I am looking forward to the next Cait Morgan mystery.
