(3rd in Henrie O Mystery series)

One of America's most highly acclaimed mystery writers brings us another installment in the career of Henrietta "Henrie O" Collins, an ex-reporter turned sleuth. These days, Henrie O is teaching journalism at Thorndyke University, where she encourages an ambitious student to pursue an investigative series about three unrelated and hitherto unsolved local crimes. But the student's study habits get her killed. Her body's discovered at the site of one of the three crimes she was investigating. The police and the powers-that-be at Thorndyke are rabidly against Henrie O's involvement in the case. But the stubborn, sixtysomething investigator is committed to dredging up a past everyone wants to keep buried -- even if it means placing herself firmly in the killer's path.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Brilliant storytelling…Carolyn Hart is one of the most popular practitioners of the traditional mystery.”

    Cleveland Plain Dealer

  • “Henrie O fans will surely enjoy this latest adventure.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “If Hart’s protagonist, ‘Henrie O,’ doesn’t yet bear the immortal stamp of Jane Marple, more than a little of Christie’s gift for plotting and suspense can be found in this intricately wrought tale.”


  • “Complex and suspenseful, written in a Christie-for-the-’90s style, this is a many-faceted exploration of campus life, ego trips, diverse personalities, and puzzle pieces finally made to fit.”

    Kirkus Reviews

    " While I did not connect to Henrie O I did enjoy this book. I really liked how the mystery was solved and the complexity involved in solving the 3 older crimes before being able to solve a recent crime. A good read! "

    " Cozy mysteries dealing with reporter Henrie O. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jamie | 3/24/2013

    " The 3rd book in the Henrie O series and I can't say I was really digging it. It started out ok, but then things started happening that I wouldn't even be stupid enough to do. And it makes you think why put it in the book? But it was an ok read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melissa | 1/3/2013

    " The start was a little slow, but the book finished with a bang! It was a nice way to tie up 3 old murders and sort-of link them together. Although I figured out who did it and why, I was still interested in the finish. "

    " Complete brain candy. Pretty good story. Enough to keep you from throwing it down, but in no way challenging. Good for what it is. Rest. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ann | 8/24/2012

    " This is a Henrie O mystery. She is a college professor in her 60s. Since I am a librarian in my 60s, I am drawn to her character. Not great literature but most entertaining. "
