Kisses and crimes in a hot summer town where bodies pile up faster than ice cream orders

The summer’s city festival begins on a tragic note as a young man dies of an allergic reaction in front of the private eye Tuulia Raja. The local pizzeria owners are suspected, and the residents of the small town do not react positively. Soon the situation escalates: something burns on the boulevard, and eventually, a body is found on the festival stage. Tuulia Raja’s skills are once again needed! But can she figure out who wants to destroy the summer idyll and why?

The Tuulia Raja books have charmed readers and critics alike. The murder mysteries are gripping, with exuberant humor and a dash of romance. The events take place in southern Finland, in and around the small town of Järvenpää. Each book has its own criminal case. The arc of the series centers on Tuulia, a forty-year-old flight attendant, and her progress as a professional private detective under the tutelage of her eccentric boss Yrjö Rahkonen.
