Scholarly infighting can get a lot more violent than most outsiders realize, but usually that violence is confined to the printed page. Not so in Concord, Mass., where the arrival of Homer Kelly, an expert on the work of Ralph Waldo Emerson, has stirred up passions concerning a manuscript that may or may not have been written by Henry David Thoreau. Things come to a head during the town?s annual re-enactment of Paul Revere?s famous ride, when one of the ?Minutemen? turns up dead, still in full Revolutionary regalia. Accustomed to little more than the odd stolen bicycle, the local police are way over their head, but Kelly?in this, his first outing?proves as gifted at sleuthing as he is at scholarship.

Jane Langton has written 18 books in the "Homer Kelly" series but all the early titles have been out of print for at least 15 years, and mystery readers tend to be passionate about reading in series-order. The 5th in the series, Emily Dickinson Is Dead, was nominated for an Edgar award for Best Mystery of the Year; Langton has also won the Anthony award for lifetime achievement in mystery fiction.
