No. 8 in the Kate Lawrence Mystery Series: The sudden death of a publishing colleague of Margo’s Auntie May overshadows the Mystery USA convention in Connecticut. The mystery deepens when May receives a letter from the victim, leaving her the rights to an unpublished manuscript from a bestselling author, now deceased, and giving her coded clues about where to find it. As Kate, Margo, Strutter and May race to crack the code, it becomes obvious that they’re not alone in their quest. Can the blockbuster new title save May’s struggling publishing business, or will it be her swan song?
