Lucinda Beckwith Long, the mayor of Athena, has donated a set of Civil War-era diaries to the archives of Athena College. The books were recently discovered among the personal effects of an ancestor of Mrs. Long?s husband. The mayor would like wonder-librarian Charlie to preserve them as a part of the Long family legacy. This is no ordinary archiving project though, as what Charlie discovers could seriously impact both the upcoming mayoral election and her own livelihood.

Review:

Praise for the New York Times bestselling Cat in the Stacks Mysteries

"Courtly librarian Charlie Harris and his Maine Coon cat, Diesel, are an endearing detective duo. Warm, charming, and Southern as the tastiest grits."--Carolyn Hart, New York Times bestselling author of the Death on Demand Mysteries

"Combines a kindhearted librarian hero, family secrets in a sleepy Southern town, and a gentle giant of a cat that will steal your heart."--Lorna Barrett, New York Times bestselling author of the Booktown Mysteries

"Ideal for Christie fans who enjoy a good puzzle."--Library Journal

"[A] pleasing blend of crime and charm."--Richmond Times-Dispatch

"James just keeps getting better and better...It's an intelligent read, so well-written that I couldn't stop reading it. Every single time I turned out my light for the night, I found myself thinking about the story, flipping the light switch again and reading just 'one more chapter.'"--MyShelf.com

Book Description Penguin Putnam Inc, United States, 2016. Paperback. Condition: New. Reprint. Language: English. Brand new Book. In this mystery in the New York Times bestselling series, librarian Charlie Harris and his cat Diesel have to battle a killer when a set of Civil War diaries inspires murder. Lucinda Beckwith Long, the mayor of Athena, Mississippi, has donated a set of Civil War-era diaries to the archives of Athena College. She would like librarian Charlie Harris to preserve and substantiate them as a part of the Long family legacy--something that could benefit her son, Beck, as he prepares to campaign for the state senate. Beck's biggest rival would like to get a look at the diaries in an attempt to expose the Long family's past sins. Meanwhile, a history professor is also determined to get her hands on the books in a last-ditch bid for tenure. But their interest suddenly turns deadly, leaving Charlie with a catalog of questions to answer. Together with his Maine Coon cat Diesel, Charlie must discover why the diaries were worth killing for before he too reaches his final chapter. INCLUDES A BONUS SHORT STORY.
