A jouster, a playwright, and a detective walk into a faire…but it’s no joke when one ends up dead.
Actress and part-time PI Ivy Meadows is thrilled when she learns that the famous playwright behind Hello Dolly Madison is in Arizona. Not so much when she realizes he’s a suspect in the murder of a Renaissance faire jouster.
As is her friend Riley. And about a thousand other people, all disguised in Renaissance costume during the fatal jousting match.
When Ivy is hired to investigate the killing, she goes undercover as a Cockney belly dancer at the faire and finagles her way into the playwright’s Kennedy-inspired version of Camelot—as Marilyn Monroe, no less.
Then, in the midst of her toughest case ever, Ivy has to solve another dilemma: Will she follow her lifelong dream of being an actor or settle down with the love of her life?
The murder investigation, the play, and real life come together in a twist that begs the question: Is there a happily-ever-after for anyone?

Review of Killalot by Cindy Brown
(An Ivy Meadows Mystery)
Ivy Meadows (her stage name) utilizes both her Private Investigator training and her acting talents as she goes undercover along with her Uncle Bob, owner of the Duda Detective Agency, to investigate a suspicious event at the Phoenix Renaissance Faire which left one jouster in critical condition and the other escaped with a missing trained jousting steed. Ivy is having enough troubles with missing out on an acting job due to a cold, and worrying why her boyfriend Matt seems to have developed cold feet. Now she has to discover if her acquaintance Riley was the actual rough-playing jouster, or if his story that he was knocked unconscious and someone else did the act is actually factual. And where in the desert is Riley's missing jousting horse Thunder?
Cindy Brown delivers an intriguing puzzle with a wide cast of characters, while introducing us to the venue of the traveling Renaissance Faire circuit, a fascinating event.
