9781429090520: Whispered Watchword #32 (Judy Bolton Mysteries)

No sooner do Judy and her FBI husband Peter Dobbs arrive in Washington, D.C., than Judy is knee-deep in mystery and suspense. It all begins quite innocently-the old Senate Office Building is being plagued by mice, and Judy's beloved cat Blackberry, rejected at the motel where she and Peter are staying, is elected official mousecatcher. There is only one problem-Blackberry has disappeared. Who let Blackberry out of the motel room and why? The owner, paralyzed by fear, refuses to talk-that is, until his own daughter vanishes-then he readily agrees to cooperate with the FBI and a Senate Committee investigating organized crime. But there is more involved in this labyrinth of intrigue than even Judy suspects. As she tours the Capitol building, she overhears a strange whisper which only can mean one thing-more danger! The life of a prominent Senator has been threatened, and Judy is suddenly faced with a great challenge to her cherished ideals of freedom and democracy. As the intricate pattern of the situation begins to emerge, Judy finally finds a solution both to her own dilemma and to a far larger and more perplexing situation.

About the Author:

Margaret Sutton was born Rachel Irene Beebe in Odin, Pennsylvania in 1903. She was the daughter of Victor Beebe, a well-known historian, and Estella Andrews Beebe. Being a spirited nonconformist, she dropped out of high school, but in 1920, graduated from the Rochester Business Institute. After graduation, she worked for several years as a secretary and in printing. During that time, she met William Sutton at a church dance in New York City. After a courtship exchanging poems and playing chess, they were married in 1924, and she began writing stories for her husband's daughter, Dorothy. Her first Judy Bolton Mystery was published in 1932 under the pen name Margaret Sutton. Ms. Sutton wove many real events and places into the Judy Bolton stories through the 35-year history of the series. She also wrote numerous stories for children and young adults. She was also active in social causes, joining the historic March on Washington in 1964. In 1965, her husband of more than 40 years died. In 1975, after traveling extensively, she married a long-time family friend, Everett Hunting. They moved to Berkeley, California and made their home there until 1993 when they moved back to Pennsylvania. Mr. Hunting died shortly after they moved. In 2001, at the age of 98, Margaret Sutton died in Lock Haven, Pennsylvania, not far from her native Potter County.
