Description

Fans of Jane Lawless new and old will be fascinated by newly minted Mystery Writers of America Grandmaster Ellen Hart's latest intricate puzzle in A Whisper of Bones.
Britt Ickles doesn't remember much from her only visit to her mother's childhood home when she was a kid, except for playing with her cousin Timmy and the eruption of a sudden family feud. That's why, when she drops by unannounced after years of silence, she's shocked when her aunts tell her Timmy never existed, that she must be confusing him with someone else. But Britt can't shake the feeling that Timmy did exist...and that something horrible has happened to him. Something her aunts want to cover up.
Britt hires Jane Lawless, hoping the private investigator can figure out what really happened to her cousin. When a fire in the family's garage leads to the discovery of buried bones and one of the aunts dies suddenly and suspiciously, Jane can't help but be pulled into the case. Do the bones belong to Timmy? Was the aunt's death an accident, suicide, or homicide? What dark secret has this family been hiding for decades? It all depends on Jane Lawless to unravel.

        January 29, 2018
        In MWA Grand Master Hart’s intricate 25th Jane Lawless mystery (after 2017’s Fever in the Dark), Penn State genomics professor Britt Ickles approaches Minneapolis PI Jane with a puzzle. Although Britt remembers playing with her cousin Timmy when she was a child at the Saint Paul home of her aunts, retired nurse Eleanor Skarsvold Devine and retired waitress Lena Skarsvold, they deny that Timmy ever existed. Britt asks Jane to find out what happened to Timmy. When Jane rents a room at the aunts’ house, she discovers that Lena is a hostile alcoholic; Eleanor’s depressed son, Frank Devine, is having marital problems; the next-door neighbor, Butch Averil, is a constant visitor; and the other new tenant, Quentin Henneberry, is fond of electronic surveillance. Amid rumors that the house is haunted, the aunts’ garage is torched, and bones are discovered under the garage floor. Although a coincidence pertaining to Butch strains credulity, some neat misdirection, an engrossing plot, and the outsize presence of Jane’s best friend, Cordelia Thorn, ensure reader attention to the end. Agent: Deborah Schneider, Gelfman Schneider Literary.
