FUNDRAISING THE DEAD
Genre: Mystery/Suspense/Thriller, Mystery, Amateur Sleuth
This cleverly plotted story introduces museum fundraiser Nell Pratt. Nell is a mature and intelligent sleuth, who works with historic treasures and takes her responsibilities seriously. Great pacing and placement of clues build tension as Nell uncovers the truth in this enjoyable and sophisticated mystery.
On the eve of the fundraising gala for the Pennsylvania Antiquarian Society, Nell learns that some of her family’s donated letters are missing. She is surprised when the society’s president, Charles Worthington, who she is also seeing socially, reacts with caution instead of concern. When someone involved is found dead, Nell must figure out who is stealing from the society and, more importantly, who would kill to keep it a secret. (PRIME CRIME, Oct., 336 pp., $6.99)
