Book Description

Another story featuring twin psychologists Sara and Gen Ziegler. The sisters suspect a neighbor of domestic violence, but what does that have to do with the ring Gen finds in her vegetable garden or the bunny that's eating the lettuce? This short mystery is about 4000 words.

Each spring finds author Elena Santangelo outside tilling the soil in hopes of a good harvest of homegrown veggies. She's dug up a few interesting relics, too--bits of early 19th century redware, clay marbles, and a piece of a colonial pipe. She writes the Possessed Mystery series, which includes Agatha Award finalist BY BLOOD POSSESSED, and her Christie short story companion, DAME AGATHA's SHORTS won an Agatha for Best Nonfiction.

This is a well-crafted short story. Within the confines of a few thousand words it provides us with some believable characters and mystery that shifts as we attempt to solve it.

Nicely done!

Sara and Gen aren't getting along too well as the twin sisters aren't identical in their preferences. The last thing Sara wanted to do was spend the weekend working in their yard. Gen did and thought that planting vegetables and getting the mess cleared up was the way to do things. There is tension between the Ziegler two sisters and they don't seem to be the only ones feeling stress in the neighborhood.

Right behind their house is the Allen's place. Apparently the newlyweds who recently moved in are having quite the argument. Words can't be understood, but, clearly there is a heated argument underway. It seems like a normal domestic squabble until "a horrifying scream ripped through the air." The neighborhood goes silent, police eventually arrive, and then the real mystery begins.

Originally Published in Alfred Hitchcock's Mystery Magazine in the 1995 December issue, the story features interesting characters, a mystery with a couple of twists, and plenty of suspense. Also included is chapter one of Two-Faced which is a novel featuring the two sisters.

More About the Author

ELENA SANTANGELO pens the Possessed Mystery series, including Agatha Award finalist BY BLOOD POSSESSED. The series features laid-off office clerk turned ghostbuster, Pat Montella, and her 91 year-old sidekick, Miss Maggie. These novels combine murder, ghosts, history, and a protagonist brought up on Italian cooking and superstitions. Latest in the series is FEAR ITSELF, in which a ghost from the Great Depression helps Pat solve a present day murder in her hometown.

Elena's Twins Mystery Series begins with the novel TWO-FACED, which introduces Gen Ziegler, forensic psychologist, and her mirror-image twin, Sara. The series continues most recently with DOUBLE CROSS, where the sisters become stranded in a West Texas town, surrounded by secrets, outlaws, danger, and murder.

DAME AGATHA'S SHORTS is Elena's armchair companion to Christie's more than one hundred and fifty short stories. DAME AGATHA'S SHORTS won the 2009 Agatha Award for Best Non-Fiction and is an Anthony Award and Macavity Award finalist.

SHORT CUTS TO MAYHEM is a print collection of 16 of Elena's short mystery and ghost stories. 18 of Elena's short stories have been published in the United States and Japan and most are available individually on Kindle. She co-edited the short story anthologies, DEATH KNELL IV and DEATH KNELL V.

She has chronicled the 1945 journal of her uncle, Joseph Chicco, along with WW2 history and info on PTSD in her book YESTERDAY, TODAY, AND FOREVER.
