MARY MORGAN was born and raised in Great Britain but has lived in Seattle, Washington, since the 1970s with her husband and three children. Originally trained as a nurse and midwife, Morgan has also tried various other jobs, including that of flight attendant, antique dealer, and hotel manager. She has published numerous short stories and two novels, Willful Neglect, the story of a medical malpractice case, and The House at the Edge of the Jungle, a tale of an Englishwoman's search for her past during World War II in the Far East.From Booklist:
Noah Richards, an attorney still grieving for his late wife, moves to an island near Seattle for a change of scene. His attempt at a fresh start is short-lived. It seems that the land he wishes to call home may belong to the Quanda tribe, and a young Native American law student researching the treaty rights turns up dead on the beach behind the house. Noah agrees to help the Native Americans but finds himself in the middle of an ugly, racist dispute between the developers and the tribe. He also meets a young woman with a baby and discovers that she is involved in a complex situation that may put the child at risk. The story deals with important themes in a beautiful setting. Noah is a conscientious, caring person who lands in the middle of a major conflict and acts with compassion and intelligence. A satisfying mystery. Barbara Bibel
