Pulitzer Prize–winning ex-reporter Henrietta O’Dwyer Collins no longer chases hot stories all over the world, but murderous mysteries seem to find her. This time, a frantic phone call from an old and dear friend on the other side of the world sends Henrie O rushing to San Antonio to check out the baffling disappearance of her friend’s devoted granddaughter, Iris Chavez. Iris, employed at the Tesoros Gallery on San Antonio’s famous River Walk, has suddenly dropped from sight without a word.

Soon Henrie O discovers that amidst the exquisite objects in the prestigious gallery and among the family members is hidden a dark secret—one Henrie O must uncover if she is to find Iris. Late one dark night on the River Walk, Henrie O sees a sprawled body, and she realizes that treachery and disgrace lurk in the shadows of an old and respected business—and death awaits anyone daring to uncover the truth.

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gail Hill | 1/17/2014

    " An excellent mystery centered around the River Walk in San Antonio. The author's description of the River Walk and of the characters that live there was familiar and comforting. I have lived in San Antonio and loved visiting the River walk. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marilyn | 12/4/2013

    " Very pleasurable! Good descriptive writing of both the scene and the people. Not particularly suspenseful. The plot and mystery are solid. The characters believably give credence to the story. I look forward to hearing Carolyn Hart at the author's luncheon at ULA! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Eleanor Jones | 10/26/2013

    " This book really transported me to another place and culture. I found it extremely vivid and one of the standouts in a series that is best read in order. Kudos this book and the entire series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vanessa | 10/26/2013

    " the reader [of this audiobook]is so awful, it's hard to tell how awful the writing is!! But it's pretty bad. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Terri | 7/25/2013

    " I really like San Antonio as the setting for this book. My favorite Henry O so far. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jamie | 3/20/2013

    " as much as I enjoy the Henri O series, I'm not too sure I enjoyed this one as much. it's a Tad immature that the characters have made such reckless decisions and they're way of thinking. The story itself seemed to move fast but at the same time felt like it dragged...if that makes any sense. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nancy | 3/6/2013

    " Enjoyed. I always enjoy reading about spots we have visited. I will give some of her other books a try. "

    " Hart sets each of her mysteries in a unique location and tells the reader a bit about the history. The murder wasn't discoverable till near the end -- fun story. "
