9780060734602: Who's Sorry Now? (Grace & Favor Mysteries, No. 6)

Sister and brother Lily and Robert Brewster may not have a penny to their names, but at least they're in good company––times couldn't be tougher in the Hudson River Valley during the Great Depression, and even the much–revered Chief of Police has lost his home. Their poor town has been stripped of its Post Office, too; now mail gets dumped off the trains steaming up the Hudson River, and people have to rummage through the bags to find their letters and packages. When Robert helps a young widow and her newly–arrived German grandfather haul the old man's trunks to his granddaughter's shop, he thinks he may have found a new set of friends––especially the kind train porter who helps them out. But when a red swastika is found painted on the widow's shop window, and the train porter is found dead, Robert knows that something much deeper, and much darker, is happening in his sleepy little town. Even back at Grace & Favor Mansion, where Lily and Robert live, things are falling apart. The Chief of Police has just unearthed a very, very old skeleton––right on the grounds! Could the two murders be related? It's up to Lily and Robert to find out the truth, before their quiet community is town apart by hatred, secrets, and a killer who may have set his sights on Grace & Favor...

About the Author:

Jill Churchill has won the Agatha and Macavity Mystery Readers awards and was nominated for an Anthony Award for her bestselling Jane Jeffry series. She is also the author of the highly acclaimed Grace and Favor mysteries and lives in the Midwest.

From Booklist:

Author of the Jane Jeffry series, contemporary mysteries set in suburban Chicago, Churchill focuses here on her historical series set in the Depression-era Hudson Valley and starring brother and sister Robert and Lily Brewster, who live in the beautiful old Grace & Favor mansion with a variety of interesting boarders. This time a new resident of Voorburg-on--Hudson is targeted by racists. The grandfather of a Voorburg resident has just arrived from Germany and soon finds a big red swastika painted on his shop window. Shortly after, a kindly train porter is found brutally murdered in the train station. Who is perpetuating such hatred? Robert and Lily play relatively small roles this time, with the story focusing on police chief Howard Walker and his admiring deputy, Ron Parker. A fair, kind, and smart hero, Walker is delightful to be around, and the relationship between the two cops is a highlight of the story. Churchill's spare yet eloquent prose fits perfectly with an era that eschews waste of any kind. The nice mix of Depression history and cozy ambience is reminiscent of a Preston Sturges film.
