Read full description of the books:
"The least likely person is the killer, and no one is really who they seem." So Jordan Hope tells his cast as they prepare to rehearse Agatha Christie's The Mousetrap. However, Jordan does not realize that, nearby, in the snowy streets of Gastown, a real murder has taken place. By the time the show is over, another will die and The Agatha Principle will strike again. In her fourth book featuring the Beary family, Elizabeth Elwood delivers another thoroughly satisfying collection. "The Agatha Principle" is followed by seven cleverly crafted shorter stories with a variety of settings. In "The Man in the Cage," a child falls into deadly peril at the 2010 Winter Olympics; a dramatic historical mystery dating back to the War of 1812 is featured in "Tragedy at The Oaks," and the book closes on a delightfully light-hearted note as the Bearys visit Vancouver's Bright Nights and solve "The Mystery of the Christmas Train." With intriguing puzzles to challenge the reader and an engaging story of a charming heroine whose relationship with a Vancouver detective is as captivating as the cases they solve together, The Agatha Principle and Other Mystery Stories is a must for lovers of classic mystery fiction.

Read information about the authorI am the author of the Beary mystery series, which includes To Catch an Actress, A Black Tie Affair, The Beacon, The Agatha Principle and most recently, The Devil Gets His Due and Other Mystery Stories. The books are collections of several stories with a connecting thread that continues the ongoing story of my main characters. These include Bertram Beary, a feisty, outspoken and politically incorrect city councillor; his detective-inspector son, Richard; and his daughter, Philippa, who is struggling to make a career in opera and musical comedy. The books are puzzle oriented, cozies rather than gory thrillers, and have been compared to Agatha Christie and Rumpole of the Bailey.
In addition to the mystery books, I have written four plays, all of which premiered at the Bernie Legge Theatre in New Westminster, B.C. The first two, Casting for Murder and Renovations, have gone on to be produced successfully in other parts of Canada. Casting for Murder is due to have its U.S. premiere this year. My most recent plays, Shadow of Murder and Body and Soul, received rave reviews at their premieres and I'm hoping that they, too, will be picked up by other companies.
I am also the artistic director of Elwoodettes Marionettes and have created 20 original marionette musicals for that company, along with my husband, Hugh, who has made many beautiful marionettes for our shows. The most popular one of these is a puppet of our dog, Max, who became an integral part of the company. Although my front-page blog covers my writing and theatre projects, I also write a second ‘dog blog’ that tells the story of Max in bi-weekly episodes.
Currently, I am past- president of Vagabond Players. I'm an honorary life member of that society, but have also acted, directed, produced and designed sets for various theatre groups around the Vancouver Lower Mainland. I love the Arts - theatre, music, writing, reading - and am always happy to hear from people who share those enthusiasms. For more information, visit my website at www.elihuentertainment.com
