Description


When tyrannical billionaire Thomas C. Whistler is drowned in the bathtub of his Chautauqua Institution McMansion in July 2018, everyone looks guilty. Especially his seven glib and greedy grown-up kids. Luckily, Chautauquan Daily reporter and relentless snoop Mimi Goldman is on the extra-tricky case, sifting through a lifetime of lies to nab a killer-and still find time to say "I do" to her man. The sixth installment in a popular Agatha Christie-like series by award-winning New York Post headline writer Deb Pines, once again, delivers page-turning suspense. Romance. And the unforgettable setting of Chautauqua, a quirky, churchy historic lakeside summer arts community that, in 1874, launched an adult-education movement Teddy Roosevelt called "the most American thing in America.
