About this title


Salem, Massachusetts, 1692: Arabella Edwards, a mysterious beauty, is found hanging from the Salem gallows, yet the courts had nothing to do with her death. It is up to Hetty Henry, a wealthy widow past 25 years of age, to help with the inquiries. The first thing Hetty notices is an expensive lacy shift hidden beneath the plain clothes of the victim. The second thing she notices is what should be there but isn't: a hood to cover her hair, a travel cloak, a chain of household keys....

About the Author:

M. E. Kemp lived an uneventful, happy life in Oxford, MA., the town her ancestors settled in 1713. Her grandmother's tales of family history from the Civil War to the Gold Rush and her father's penchant for trips to historic sites made American history every bit as colorful and bloody as European history to Kemp. She also enjoyed reading the medieval mysteries of Brother Cadfael and decided to create two nosy Puritans from Boston as American counterparts. This was after years of writing textbooks and magazine articles and teaching nonfiction writing in local colleges. Her first book in the series introduced Hetty Henry and Creasy Cotton to readers. Hetty is a wealthy widow with connections to high and low society; Increase "Creasy" Cotton, a young Boston minister, knows how to ferret the guilty secrets out of the human soul. Her book, DEATH OF A DUTCH UNCLE, published by Hilliard and Harris, found the two Puritans in Dutch Albany with a rollicking cast of odd characters. DEATH OF A BAWDY BELLE is set during the hysteria of the Salem witch trials. In real life Kemp runs a dance program for mature adults and hopes to incorporate Colonial dance in her next mystery. She lives in Upstate New York with husband Jack, (who hand-sells her books at OTB-some of her best customers are bookies!) and their two cats, Boris and Natasha.
