Ben Reese Mystery series, book 3.

1 in stock (can be backordered)


Georgina Fletcher is a Scottish academic, a sensible woman troubled in the weeks before her seemingly natural death by knowledge of some unpleasantness in her family’s history and a strong desire to make amends for the misdeeds of her forbears. When a former student of American archivist Ben Reese inherits Georgina’s estate, she asks him to help her solve the professor’s mystery so that she can carry out Georgina’s wishes. Ben’s investigation turns up several likely suspects in Georgina’s demise, and the secret of how she was killed. Along the way, the reader is treated to descriptions and explanations of matters as far-ranging as falconry, stone-sculpting, microbiology, and rare book collecting.
