Inhaltsangabe: ?Cheers for Henrie O, an intelligent, engaging sleuth!??Mary Higgins Clark
Henrie O is looking forward to a quiet holiday. Instead, the ex-journalist turned sleuth awakens in a Tennessee mountain cabin to discover her friend?s nephew, his shirt stained with blood, his handsome face stricken by fear and horror.
Craig Matthews swears he didn?t kill his wife, swears he didn?t lure Patty Kay out to the playhouse of their lavish Fair Haven estate and leave her bloodied and dead. Why, then did he run away? It?s a question that draws Henrie O into the thick of a life-and-death drama, into the lives of Fair Haven?s best families, and into a world where wealth and privilege mask a hotbed of sex, lies, and desperation.
Only when Henrie O begins to question the motives of the bereaved widower, the sullen nymphet of a daughter, the irresistible ex-husband, the venomous sister, even the ingratiating schoolmaster of the exclusive school where Patty Kay was a trustee, does the truth start to emerge. But when another corpse turns up, Henrie O knows time is running out. Now she must untangle this deadly web?or become the next victim of a mind bent on murder.
From Kirkus Reviews: Just because Henrietta O'Dwyer Collins (Dead Man's Island, 1993) has retired from reporting the news doesn't mean she's retired from asking nosy questions; and when Craig Matthews stumbles into the Tennessee vacation cottage she was to share with his stricken aunt gasping that he didn't kill his socialite wife, Patty Kay, she swiftly assumes the role of his aunt and takes up his cause. The deck is stacked against Craig--somebody went to a lot of trouble to lure him home to discover Patty Kay's body--but Henrie O, alertly noticing that there are no footprints in the cheesecake (don't ask), is sure that he's innocent and turns instead to the town's secrets, heralded by the incessant sniping of Fair Havenites. After pausing to note the obligatory adulteries- -both Craig and Patty Kay were not only having active affairs but were worshiped from afar--Henrie O focuses on the links among Patty Kay's death, the suicide of Walden School student Franci Hollis a day earlier, and the murder of a bookstore clerk who maybe remembered too much about the phone call that lured Craig back home. As before, serenely self-confident Henrie O proves a paragon of sturdy, old-fashioned detection. On the evidence here, Fair Haven must be the busiest, nastiest little hamlet in the galaxy. -- Copyright ©1994, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.
