Murder in Schwyz

D-L Nelson


Brother Fritz wants to sell. Sister Petra wants to expand. The Bircher family has manufactured cookies in the picturesque Swiss canton of Schwyz since the late 1800s. And Annie Young-Perret was warned, when she took an assignment to write a history of the company, about the ongoing sibling feud over control of its future.

When Fritz is found shot to death, the police arrest Petra. Petra hires Annie's French husband, an ex-police detective, to prove her innocence, and Annie can't resist helping.

Fritz had been negotiating with a firm that specializes in buying and stripping other companies, but his murder happens before the sale is completed. The company lawyer tries to replace the jailed Petra with a manager who will move ahead with the deal. The employees, however, own enough stock to rebel. As clues accumulate, Annie's instincts are telling her who killed Fritz--but her plan for a confrontation may be deadly.


D-L Nelson, is a third-culture adult, raised in the United States but living in Switzerland and Southern France. She is the author of ten novels, five of which are about Annie and her adventures.
