An Old-fashioned Mystery

A novel by

"A timeless delight. The more murder mysteries you have read, the likelier you will relish this one." -- Toronto Globe and Mail

"This book might well have been titled THE LAST MYSTERY, since it is most definitely the mystery to end all mysteries."
--from the Introduction by L.A. Morse, Edgar award-winning author of THE OLD DICK

Ten guests have gathered at an isolated summer estate amid the Thousand Islands. The occasion is a surprise party to celebrate Rosa Sill's 25th birthday, the day she inherits the family fortune. But one surprise awaits them: the party quickly turns to a case of murder.

Violet Cornichon, the Society-Girl Detective, is on-hand, and it is up to her to gather all the clues and point them toward the suspects... or is that the potential victims. Because the killer is hardly finished with his deadly night, with bodies turning up, murdered in terrible and brutal ways. Which begs the old-fashioned question: whodunit?
