Looking for a thrilling and humorous read? Look no further than "Secret Agent Granny," the first book in a cozy mystery series by 3x USA TODAY Bestselling Author Harper Lin.

Join retired CIA agent Barbara Gold as she trades in her spy gadgets for a quieter life in Cheerville, a quaint small town in New England. When a man is poisoned during a book club meeting for seniors, Barbara's boredom is replaced with excitement to solve this dangerous case. Who would want this sweet old man dead?

It's only a matter of time before his death is declared murder and the police start hounding everyone. Even though she is no longer undercover, Barbara feels as if she's only playing the part of a sweet grandmother, but this may just be her most useful cover yet. 

As the clock ticks, Barbara uses her CIA training to investigate who in the Cheerville Active Readers' Society could be the killer. Suddenly Barbara's CIA training is useful again, and Cheerville is starting to seem not so dull after all…

Find out what happens in this action-packed first book, filled with humor, mystery, and a butt-kicking granny who proves that age is just a number.

    Easy to read, didn’t want to put it down.

    Because it was so short, the details came together too quickly and easily. It was pleasurable reading, but it lacked enough detail. It wasn’t worked out. Reached its conclusion too quickly. I would have loved more involvement in getting to the end. DISAPPOINTED.

    Barbara Gold is a fiesta retires CIA agent trying to fit in to a “normal” retirees life. Her life gets unexpected interest when a friend is murdered. Being a senior myself, I can identify with Barbara’s complaints of her body slowing down. Even with impaired vision, slows reaction times, and aches and pains Barbara is able to solve the case without blowing her cover. Good story line with several laughs and grins.

    This is a new series based on a septuagenerian retired CIA agent retired to a village called Cheerville. She gets bored and looked for adventure as an investigator of suspicious deaths. I found it curious and likely premise of we who age with relish but not at all responsibly! I might be one of those people...

    Short, but expected at this price. A fun read at a great price.
