‘A heroine as capable and complex as P. D. James’s Cordelia Gray’ (Publishers Weekly) Though Roe has proven she can handle just about anything, even this part-time librarian may not be ready for the full-time crisis that comes her way in the sixth Aurora Teagarden mystery . . .
Roe’s life finally seems to have settled into a comfortable pattern. Her marriage to Martin is going well, she’s back at work at the Lawrenceton library – and best if all, she hasn’t found a dead body in quite a while. But then one afternoon her handyman goes crazy in her front yard. Roe suspects this is a sign of more bad things to come. And she is right.
Soon Martin’s niece, Regina, shows up with a baby that no one knew she had. Then she disappears, leaving behind the child-and a murdered husband. To find her, Roe and Martin retrace her steps from sunny Georgia back to snowy Ohio, where they will uncover dark family secrets – at their own peril . . .
