The Mex Mysteries

Based in New York City, Mexicali Rose (“You can call me Mex”) Stone is above all a human being having a spiritual experience. She’s an intuitive investigator who solves her cases from the inside out. Guided by Spirit, her inner voice, she catches her culprit, and always learns something about herself.

U.S. passport and lipstick in her purse, Mex’s cases lead her in all directions: Tierra del Fuego, the Western Isles of Scotland, the Mafiosi underground of Japan, at home on Broadway and up the Hudson to her country home. On her travels, Mex manages to fall in (and out) of love with a number of gifted women from whom she learns and with whom she grows spiritually.

 

Oklahoma! Hex finds Mex on Broadway solving the real-life murder of “pore” Jud in a production of Oklahoma!. Called in to investigate by an old flame and the producer of the show, Mex works alongside her favorite cop, Michael Ryan Kelley, to uncover the murderer. When she discovers that the cast of Oklahoma! is infiltrated with Santería practitioners. . . .

Brigadoon Moon sends Mex to the Western Isles of Scotland, near the Callanish Stone Circle, where her old friend Waverly King is conducting a production of Brigadoon. Mex tangles with the local aristocrat who harbors a secret identity and who is obscuring a triple murder by using the centuries-old battle between the witches and the Druids as a diversion. . . .

Butterfly Fan summons Mex to Kyoto, Japan, and to the healing of a deeply submerged secret in her own life:  the death of her only son. A one-shot production of Puccini’s Madama Butterfly commissioned by the okasan of the oldest geisha house in existence entwines Mex with the Japanese Yakuza and a businessman’s murder turned hara kiri. . . .
