Cozy Mysteries

Kay Williamson 


The Mysterious Woman on
the Train

David Martin is a professor at a southern Wisconsin college when, on a train trip to Chicago, he meets Rosalind, resident ghost and victim of her own unsolved 1940s murder. Through dreams and ghostly trickery, it takes the mysterious and captivating Rosalind a year to prod David into taking up her cause. But when he does, he turns to his stylishly spirited mother, Kathleen, for help. Thus this unlikely pairing of mother and son amateur sleuths takes up the trail of the mother of all cold cases. 


Follow David and Kathleen as Rosalind leads them on a delightful trek from the mobster-land Chicago of her past to the culturally rich Austin, Texas rife with promises of the future – just whose you’ll have to read the book to find out. But be assured David and his mother will introduce you to all sorts of colorful people along the way to solving this cozy, cold case. 


“Be prepared to be enchanted by David’s and Kathleen’s interaction as I was. They are the stars of this story. One more thing… coincidence may be replaced by synchronicity in your vocabulary once you’ve read Kay Williamson’s most entertaining The Mysterious Woman on the Train.”
