After four bridge players are poisoned, newspaper reporter Wendy Winchester sets out to catch a killer who's not playing with a full deck . . .

When the four wealthy widows who make up the venerable Rosalie Bridge Club never get up from their card table, this quiet Mississippi town has its first quadruple homicide. Who put cyanide in their sugar bowl? An aspiring member and kibitzer with the exclusive club, Wendy takes a personal interest in finding justice for the ladies.

She also has a professional motivation. A frustrated society columnist for the Rosalie Citizen, she's ready to deal herself a better hand as an investigative reporter. This could be her big break. Plus, she has a card or two up her sleeve: her sometimes boyfriend is a detective and her dad is the local chief of police.

Partnering up with the men in her life, Wendy starts shuffling through suspects and turning over secrets long held close to the chest by the ladies. But when a wild card tries to take her out of the game, Wendy decides it's time to up the ante before she's the next one to go down . . .

About R. J. Lee:

R. J. Lee was born and grew up in a large, extended Southern family in the historic river port of Natchez, Ms. He graduated from the University of the South, affectionately known as Sewanee, where he received a B.A. in English. He also studied creative writing under Sewanee Review editor, Andrew Lytle. His father, who used the pen name, R. Keene Lee, wrote and edited what is now known as 'pulp fiction' fighter pilot and detective stories in the late '40's for Fiction House in New York, publisher of such magazines as WINGS. The Bridge To Death Mystery series is Lee's first venture into the cozy mystery genre, with the debut novel, Grand Slam Murders, debuting in late January, 2019. The next installment in the series, Playing the Devil, will be released in late January, 2020. Both novels feature a young female investigative reporter with the twin goals of playing a serious game of bridge and solving murders in her home town of Rosalie, MS.
