Description
Lucinda Beckwith Long, the mayor of Athena, has donated a set of Civil War-era diaries to the archives of Athena College. The mayor would like Charlie to preserve and to substantiate them as a part of the Long family legacy-something that could benefit her son, Beck, as he prepares to campaign for the state senate. Beck's biggest rival is Jasper Singletary, and their families have been bitter enemies since the Civil War. He'd like to get a look at the diaries in an attempt to expose the Long family's past sins. Meanwhile, a history professor at the college is also determined to get her hands on the books in a last-ditch bid for tenure. Now Charlie is left with a catalog of questions. The diaries seem worth killing for, and one thing is certain: Charlie will need to be careful, because the more he reads, the closer he could be coming to his final chapter . . .

        December 22, 2014
        In James’s diverting sixth cozy featuring librarian Charlie Harris and his Maine Coon cat, Diesel (after 2014’s The Silence of the Library), Mayor Lucinda Long donates a set of Civil War–era family diaries to the archives of Athena College in Athena, Miss. Interest in the volumes is surprisingly high—so high that they disappear from Charlie’s locked office. Politics enters the picture when rumor has it that the diaries contain a Long family secret that could affect the race Lucinda’s son, Beck, is running against an old family rival for the state senate. Soon the books mysteriously reappear, and everyone’s attention turns to the murder of an unpopular Athena faculty member who was involved with the diaries. What could be so shocking in the Long family history that someone would kill for it? Once again, series fans will learn that the library holds more than dusty tomes, besides enjoying a visit with their favorite oversized cat. Agent: Nancy Yost, Nancy Yost Literary Agency.
