Amy Lynch was conceived in a restaurant in Nantucket where local author, PK Norton, and her husband were sipping cocktails and discussing various ways to kill people.  After another round of drinks and a bit more conversation, Amy became the protagonist in a mystery series embroiling her in mayhem and murder.

 
In Norton’s second novel, Dead Drop (Stillwater River Publications, June, 2018), what starts out as a well-deserved vacation for Amy—volunteering at an archaeological dig on the outskirts of Paris—becomes perilous when the head archaeologist is found dead at the dig-site. A recently-uncovered relic from World War II threatens to expose treachery and betrayal from the time of the German Occupation. It endangers the life of anybody bold enough to delve into its significance.

 
New England Casualty & Indemnity, the insurance company where Amy works as a claims investigator, is insuring the dig. Amy’s world turns upside-down as she reverts from vacation mode to conduct a full-blown investigation. There are more deaths, obstacles and threats to her own safety—as well as an adorable French detective—in her quest to unmask a traitor.

Norton’s first book, Sweet Dreams, Sweet Death, was welcomed by national reviewers:

 An impressively crafted and unfailingly entertaining novel by a master of the genre, “Sweet Dreams, Sweet Death” by P. K. Norton is the first volume of what promises to be a simply outstanding new series starring Amy Lynch, female investigator.

                                                   --- James A. Cox, Editor-in-Chief of the Midwest Book Review

I was very intrigued by this series. …. This is the sort of book you can curl up with for an evening and enjoy…  P.K. Norton provides you with an easy read that will keep you guessing until the big reveal. I would definitely recommend this for murder mystery lovers as well as for those who like a bit of intrigue in their romance.                                                                                              

                                                                                               --- @KLEFFNOTES                                                

                                            

Norton weaves realistic professional procedure and unexpected emotional jolts into the otherwise erotic flavor of Key West, creating a debut that will seriously contend for all the “Best First” awards.

 
                                                       ---- Jeremiah Healy, author

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

 
Paula PK Norton had no idea that what she did for a living would prove so significant until Amy Lynch, Insurance Investigator, was born.  Like mother, like offspring/heroine.   Paula’s passions also surface in Sweet Dreams, Sweet Death and future books in her series.  Interests like archeology, The Association of Former Intelligence Officers –yes, she is a card-carrying member – Paris, Key West and fencing.

 
But the affection that figured most in her life and her writing was for husband, Jack.  Together, over cocktails and dinner, Paula and Jack concocted unique ways to kill people.  There are many of these – enough to fill at least four books in the Amy Lynch Mystery Series.

 
When she is not plotting and writing, Paula is, well, plotting and writing with Sisters in Crime and the Cape Cod Writers Center.

 
Paula was born and raised in Abington, MA where she taught at the public schools, and resides now in Easton, MA.
