'Great bloody fun' Barbara PaulPart-time librarian Aurora 'Roe' Teagarden lands smack in the middle of a baffling murder case in the fifth murder mystery from #1 New York Times and Sunday Times bestselling author Charlaine HarrisRoe never liked Detective Sergeant Jack Burns, but she never wanted to see him dead - especially dropped from a plane right into her own front yard. Luckily, even Lawrenceton, Georgia's finest, know that Roe couldn't possibly be in two places at once, so her name is crossed off the suspect list. But then other strange things happen around Roe, ranging from peculiar (her irascible cat turns up wearing a pink ribbon) to violent (her assistant at the library is attacked) to potentially deadly (her ex-lover is stabbed). Clearly there is a personal message in this madness that Roe must decipher - before it is too late . . .

'Harris draws the guilty and the innocent into an engrossing tale while inventing a heroine as capable and potentially complex as P. D. James's Cordelia Gray' (Publishers Weekly)#1 New York Times and Sunday Times bestselling author Charlaine Harris introduces a librarian whose bookish bent for murder gets her involved in a real-life killing spree . . . Lawrenceton, Georgia, may be a growing suburb of Atlanta, but it's still a small town at heart. Librarian Aurora 'Roe' Teagarden grew up there and knows more than enough about her fellow townsfolk, including which ones share her interest in the darker side of human nature . . . With those fellow crime buffs, Roe belongs to a club called Real Murders, which meets once a month to analyze famous cases. It's a harmless pastime - until the night she finds a member dead, killed in a manner that eerily resembles the crime the club was about to discuss. As other brutal "copycat" killings follow, Roe will have to uncover the person behind the terrifying game, one that casts all the members of Real Murders, herself included, as prime suspects-or potential victims . . .

What's even more worrisome is the dead body found at their last known location. While the local police comb the county for the missing children, Aurora and her new husband, true crime writer Robin Crusoe, begin their own investigation. Could the two incidents have something to do with a group of school bullies? Are Aurora's father's gambling debts related to the disappearance of her brother?
