ABOUT M. K. Mattias

M. K. Mattias
Author of Simone Darling mystery series



Australian art restorer Simone Darling has an empty bank account, a boring boyfriend, and an irrational fear of Florida, capital of vice and crime. Nothing—not even a family get-together—can induce her to set foot in the Sunshine State. But when her mother, newly married to a secretive man with a shady background, offers her a quick art restoration job for a lot of $$$, she reconsiders. With her boyfriend Kevin in tow and much trepidation, she arrives in Miami. To her relief all seems normal—until she finds a man in her mother’s fridge. A man who is not only dead, but a dead ringer for Kevin. Too late she realizes someone has set a trap—and her unsuspecting boyfriend has become the target. But who is out to get him? 

Drug smugglers? 
The FBI? 
Her mother

Trying to stay one step ahead of their pursuers, Simone and Kevin embark on a hilarious and dangerous adventure from Miami to Key West while trying to rekindle their passion and survive a crazy family reunion marked by murder and mayhem.
Spitting Image was an absolute laugh a minute, with all the hijinx that Simone and Kevin manage to get into, as they try to solve the murder. From the first chapter to the last it was laughs, mystery and mayhem and I’m so glad that I discovered this indie title.
SPITTING IMAGE is one of the funniest mysteries I've read in ages. I literally laughed my way through it from beginning to end. The book is very well written, and the author has a natural talent for comedy, unique characters, and amazing plot turns.

A little jewel of a book! Stumbled across it while browsing in Amazon and definitely didn't regret downloading it. This is one of those "can't put down books". I couldn't find any other books from this author, so it may be her first. I just hope that there are many more books to follow. Haven't laughed as much reading a book for a long time. Superb criminal comedy!
