About this title


Who poisoned LAURENS DE NOYES with a deadly dose of brandy so that the drunken Dutchman dropped dead on Boston Common. Widowed businesswoman Hetty Henry teams up with young Boston minister Increase "Creasy" Cotton to investigate Colonial Albany for suspects. Could it be the wife who keeps her own name and her cool at news of her husband's death? Could it be his father-in-law who detested his philandering son-in-law? Could it possibly be one of his jilted lovers, stolen mistresses or their husbands? Or could it be blackmail? De Noyes was not above a little extortion. Hetty and Creasy undergo Indian attack, kidnapping and Piracy on the High Hudson before they uncork the criminal with a doctored dram of their own.

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.
