Description
In a murder mystery so charming it could only have come from Dorothy Cannell--hailed by Nancy Pickard as "America's P. G. Wodehouse"--Ellie Haskell is shocked when her long-lost father shows up on her doorstep with some rather . . . compromising baggage. Ellie Haskell and her husband, Ben, haven't taken a vacation in years. Now their suitcases are packed, their tickets are booked, and they're ready for a romantic getaway in France. But everything goes awry after a chain-smoking fortune teller makes a dire prediction: "Take that trip at your peril!" Those ominous words ring true when Ellie's prodigal father, Morley, suddenly appears with the remains of his ladylove, Harriet, whose untimely death in a car accident has left him bereft. But after Morley loses the urn in a bizarre series of events, Harriet's family is furious. Now a bewildered Ellie finds herself asks some probing questions: Who or what was in that urn? Could her father be a pawn in a deadly game? And what exactly is the meaning of that darn prophecy? Ellie just hopes she lives to find out whether the answers are worth the trouble. Praise for Dorothy Cannell and the Ellie Haskell series "A thoroughly entertaining series." -- Cosmopolitan "It is the absurd predicaments of her central characters that readers find themselves recalling, and Cannell is cunning at devising outlandish situations for them." -- Chicago Sun-Times "Cannell is a master of subtle wit and humorous asides that lift her cozies to great heights. Before the influx of writers trying to out-humor Janet Evanovich, there was Dorothy Cannell. Long may she write!" -- Library Journal
