A lovely old building hides a nasty crime...
A Shereby resident for a year now, American Dorothy Martin is still learning her way around the charming English cathedral town. But she recognizes a dead body when she sees one. As town debate rages over what to do about the decaying town hall, Dorothy is at that very site when the body of an unknown young man is found. Her passion for mysteries is as hot as ever, of course. Despite warnings from her dear friend Chief Constable Alan Nesbitt not to get in the way of the official investigation, Dorothy simply can't resist taking a look around. What she discovers is that there are plenty of skeletons in local closets, enough to keep an amateur sleuth on her toes -- unless the hands of a murderer reach her first.

Jeanne M. Dams introduced her gently nosy Anglophile widow Dorothy Martin in the Agatha Award-winning The Body in the Transept. Now Dorothy has found a body hidden in a closet in the town hall of Sherebury. The town hall itself is the object of a lively local debate between developers and renovators; could the young man have fallen afoul of someone with an axe to grind? As always, Dorothy doesn't mind putting on a ridiculous hat to ask tough questions.About the Author:
