The first book in Melanie Jackson's new Miss Henry Mystery Series is a 40k word novel. "Melanie Jackson is a talent to watch." --WritersWrite.com Juliet Henry, water-color artist and retired agent of the NSA, wouldn't stack up her knowledge of the human heart against the great romantic poets, but she knows a thing or two about human avarice and stupidity. It comes as no great surprise when the small artists' colony of Bartholomew's Woods ends up with a dead resident. Harvey Allen was a professional gossip, hated the length and breadth of the state for his scandal-mongering in the press, and it seemed that one of Juliet's talented but idiosyncratic neighbors had finally had enough of his pernicious tale-bearing and decided to paint him out of the picture. Juliet may sympathize, but she also knows that once a person resorts to murder to hide a secret, chances are good that they may choose to kill again. Can she find the murderer before the killer paints the town red? Move over Miss Marple, there's a new slueth in town. If you are a fan of Ngaio Marsh or Agatha Christie you are going to love Juliet Henry and the residents of Bartholomew's Woods. PRAISE FOR THE AUTHOR "A wickedly sexy tale!" --Christine Feehan, New York Times Bestselling Author (on The Selkie) "... delivers sizzling romance and ghoulish thrills at a breathtaking clip." --Publishers Weekly (on Traveler) "Readers of Laurel K. Hamilton will enjoy this complex tale..." --Booklist (on Still Life) ABOUT THE AUTHOR Melanie Jackson is the award-winning author of more than fifty novels, novellas and poems published in various languages.
