Rita Mae Brown and her feline
coauthor Sneaky Pie Brown return with an all-new mystery starring Mary Minor
“Harry” Haristeen, intrepid kitty sleuths Mrs. Murphy and Pewter, and Tee
Tucker, the ever-faithful crime-solving corgi.
Winter has come to Crozet,
Virginia, bringing with it a fresh blanket of snow. Harry and her husband,
Fair, are hip deep in their usual end-of-the-year activities: distributing food
to needy residents and shopping for outfits for the Silver Linings youth
organization’s annual fundraising gala. But buried beneath the white stuff are
dark secrets from Crozet’s past—and Harry and her posse of pet detectives are
determined to sniff them out.
Two Silver Linings mentors
have been found dead in suspicious circumstances. If that weren’t enough to
chill the bones of the locals, a pair of severed human fingers has turned up in
a pencil jar in the bookkeeper’s office at St. Cyril’s church. What does this
grisly display have to do with the mysterious disappearance of Harry’s
voluptuous high school Latin teacher, a quarter of a century ago? Maybe
nothing. But when the animals make another gruesome discovery in the woods
behind Harry’s farm, it becomes clear that terrible crimes have been committed
in Crozet—and somebody has gone to great lengths to cover them up. It’s time to
stop shoveling snow and start digging for clues.
The truth will be revealed. A
cold case will be solved. And a twenty-five-year-old love triangle is about to
get untangled. The weather outside may be frightful, but Harry and her
four-legged friends refuse to be spooked off the case. Download and start listening now!
