It’s No Mystery that Executive Hotelier Draws from Real Life in His Fiction
Mystery novelist Daniel Edward Craig combines murder with five-star character
ST. PAUL, MINN, What goes on behind the scenes at luxury hotels may not be all that adventurous: No one’s life is usually in danger, screams aren’t heard in the night, and bodies aren’t discovered dead on the floor—or are they? Novelist Daniel Edward Craig draws on his career as a hotelier to delight readers with his hilarious novels that reveal how things are never quite as calm and dignified as they seem to the guests.
Trevor accepts, but screams in the night, foul odors, and the sudden disappearance of a chambermaid have him looking over his shoulder. And grim rumors of Lady Graverly’s husband, who disappeared over fifty years ago, only add to the home’s eerie atmosphere. Trevor is dying to see Lady Graverly’s private rooms, but she refuses. What dark secrets is she hiding?
Daniel Edward Craig, author of the Five-Star Mystery series, draws on his years working in luxury hotels for his writing inspiration. Most recently he was general manager of Opus Hotels in Montreal and Vancouver. Craig currently spends his time writing, consulting, and traveling, and his insider’s blog has attracted a worldwide following for its frank and entertaining look at the hotel business. He is particularly passionate about hotels, having stayed in—and worked for—some of the best in the world. For more information please visit or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
