Ladies and Gentlemen, may I present… Murder at the Royal Wedding. One can almost feel the papillae on one’s tongue shrivel under the utter blandness. The plot? A deranged maniac obsessed with the late Princess Diana of Wales plans to kill Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall at Will and Kate’s Royal Wedding. The protagonists? A disgraced royal copper and a girl-gone-wild paparazzo.
The author Ron Morgans admits to receiving more than a few emails on how “it’s in bad taste and poorly timed” to have unveiled this mystery novel (and through Amazon ePub, no less.)
Au contraire! (Could it be exquisitely-timed to surf the hype wave surrounding the Royal Wedding? How long do you think it took him to write this? Hmm…let me think.)
In any case, I’m sure Mr. Morgans will be making some bank off of this tacky little number about a Diana-crazed ex-con. Though I’m pretty sure if anyone thought about committing murder at the Royal Wedding, it’d be for one of those outrageously fabulous hats.
