From the Inside Flap
"An original sleuth, a delightful Southern setting . . ." D.R. Meredith
From the author of "All the Great Pretenders," another Jesus Creek mystery.
First there's the spectacular blaze that totals the antebellum home of genealogist Oliver Host. Then the appalling murder of librarian Estelle Carhart, a lady too softhearted even to collect fines for overdue books. Delia Cannon, a library volunteer and something of an amateur genealogist, suspects a connection between the crimes. But Delia doesn't yet realize that she already knows too much for her own good . . . and that somebody in Jesus Creek wants her to check out of the library and the sleuthing business -- permanently.
