About this title


Jenny Cain is shocked by the appearance of David Mayer, who claims to be her policeman husband's son and wants him to help investigate his parent's alleged murder/suicide, until carefully placed clues lead them to another violent murder. 25,000 first printing.

From Publishers Weekly:

Beginning with a nasty shock and ending with a nastier one, the ninth Jenny Cain mystery (after But I Wouldn't Want to Die There ) sets the plucky amateur sleuth from Port Frederick, Mass., on a complex, somewhat contrived, emotionally demanding course. One steaming August day, Jenny, recently resigned as director of a foundation, and her police lieutenant husband, Geof Bushfield, are visited at home by angry 17-year-old David Mayer, who announces that he is Geof's illegitimate son by Judy Mayer, a high school classmate of Geof's. The winter before, Judy, an invalid, had been killed by her husband Ron, who then committed suicide. David, foul-mouthed and hateful, demands that Geof reopen the case and prove the deaths were murders. Confessing to having had a one-night stand with Judy during high school, Geof readily, almost eagerly, accepts David's story; Jenny, however, is upset and skeptical. As the two of them investigate, dead animals appear around their house, and Dennis Clemmons, an ex-husband of Judy's, dies in suspicious circumstances. Judy proves to have been an expert, inveterate liar. The tension increases as videotapes--of Judy and Clemmons confessing to sins--lead Geof to a farm, a cult of flagellants and painful danger before the questions of young David's paternity--and Jenny's ambivalent responses--are finally put to rest. Author tour; Mystery Guild selection.
