The Man on the Washing Machine



A debut novel by Susan Cox, this title is set in San Francisco in a small neighborhood where the protagonist, Theophania Bogart, has fled from England to start a new life after a family crisis. She runs a small shop named Aromas, selling high end bath and beauty aids, and is trying to live a quiet life when she witnesses a murder of a neighbor who has fallen out of his apartment window to his death. Shortly after, Nicole, Theo’s partner in the shop goes missing, Theo stumbles upon an intruder in her apartment and her life becomes complicated by a new tenant in her building. Cox won the First Crime Novel Award from the Mystery Writers of America for this book, and she pens a quick moving and engrossing story  with quirky characters that you won’t want to put down until the end is reached.
