Death and Honesty

(2009)
(The eighth book in the Martha's Vineyard Mystery series)
A novel by

 
 
Victoria Trumbull, the ninety-two-year-old poet/sleuth, discovers a neighbor's body in the home of one of the three town assessors. The assessors have been skimming off tax money from wealthy landowners and stashing it in their own special retirement funds. Then the private pilot of the not-so-holy clergyman husband of one of these landowners is found dead, floating in his employer's pond, his face gnawed by snapping turtles. Finally, searching for old documents in the attic of Town Hall, Victoria discovers a third body, that of the long-missing assessors clerk. In order to tie all the threads together and solve the murders, Cynthia again teams up with her old friend and rival, Emery Meyer, now working as the landowner's chauffeur.

It's another entertaining mystery, as only Riggs can spin it, infused with the flora and fauna of Martha's Vineyard.
