Description
Carolyn Hart is one of America's best-loved mystery writers-a multiple award-winning architect of ingenious puzzles set in atmospheric locales, featuring men and women both intriguingly complex and achingly human. And no chaaracter is more complex or human than sixty-something sleuth Henrie O, whose decades of newspapering have taught her that every fact is susect, but goodness can still be celebrated.
