A business opportunity in America leads to a case of cold-blooded murder for Apothecary John Rawlings in this “highly entertaining adventure” (Booklist).
America, 1773. Following a long and perilous journey, John Rawlings has arrived in Boston, Massachusetts, to pursue a new business venture. He finds the place riven with tension and unrest. There are many who feel it’s time the colonies sought freedom from British rule, and the seething resentment erupts into outright rebellion during the notorious Boston Tea Party. But has someone taken advantage of the chaos to commit cold-blooded murder?
Called in to examine a body fished out of Boston Harbor, Rawlings recognizes one of his fellow travelers from England. If he could unearth the truth about the victim’s past, he would be one step closer to catching the killer. But has Rawlings become a pawn in a bigger, even more sinister game?
Death at the Boston Tea Party is the sixteenth book in the John Rawlings Mysteries, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order.
