Death At Will: A Turn-of-the-Century Cozy Mystery
Can Adele Gossling prove a son didn't kill his mother?
Teddy Roosevelt is running for president and even Arrojo can't deny progressive reforms are here to stay. Rebecca Gold, one of the era's New Women, chooses just this time to set up her own law practice in Arrojo and lands the affluent Thea Marsh as her first client.
When Thea dies unexpectedly, the trail of suspects leads to her own family. The beloved and favored eldest son, Theo, is accused of the crime. Could such a placid man really be guilty of matricide?
The police think so. So Rebecca turns to her new friend in town: businesswoman and fellow suffragist Adele Gossling. Adele has already proven herself to be adept at helping the local police solve crimes, much to the shock and chagrin of the town's conservative citizens. Despite promises never to involve herself in crime detection again, how can she refuse a friend in need?
Will Adele make a case against Theo's guilt for the police out of a stained teacup, a fountain pen nib, ashes that should have been in the fireplace, and daisies that should have been fresh? Or will Theo go to the gallows and the real murderer escape justice?
Find out in this third installment of the Adele Gossling Mysteries, the compelling early 20th century series spearheaded by Adele Gossling and her spiritual sidekick, Nin Branch, as they set out to prove women can be crime busters too!
