A Novel by Gale Martin


About the Book...

In Gale Martin’s newest novel, Ellie Overton is a 28-year-old rest home receptionist with a pussycat nose who also happens to be gaga for the pop singer Tom Jones. Regrettably single, she is desperate to have a red-hot love relationship, like those she’s read about in romance novels. Following an astrological hunch, she attends a Tom Jones Festival and meets an available, young impersonator with more looks than talent. Though he’s knocked out of the contest, he’s still in the running to become Ellie’s blue-eyed soul mate—until he’s accused of killing the competition. It’s not unusual that the handsome police detective working the case is spending more time pursuing Ellie than collaring suspects. So, she enlists some wily and witty rest home residents to help find the real murderer. Must Ellie forfeit her best chance for lasting love to crack the case?
What Others Are Saying About The Book!

It's not unusual for me to praise the writing of Gale Martin, author of Grace Unexpected and Don Juan in Hankey PA. She has once again, thrilled me with her latest novel Who Killed 'Tom Jones'? Martin's original voice, masterful storytelling and distinctive characters had me snorting in laughter on the NYC subway one minute and biting my nails wondering "who done it" the next. I highly recommend this book to readers of all ages who enjoy a light cozy mystery, women's fiction and, of course, the music of Tom Jones.

In Who Killed ‘Tom Jones’?, Gale Martin has perfectly captured the world of tribute artists and, also, the universe of Tom Jones fans.

Gale Martin delivers a rollicking story of a lost-in-the-past young woman who longs for the love of a Tom Jones look-a-like. Wittily written and delightfully fresh, Who Killed 'Tom Jones'? is a comic tale that evokes laughter at every turn as twenty-something Ellie Overton winds her way through murder, mayhem, madness, and tribute artists on her road to finding true love. Martin’s high-brow humor shines through this action-packed comedy. A priceless read!
