Mansions of the Dead

(2004)
(The second book in the Sweeney St. George Mysteries series)
A novel by

 
 
In O' Artful Death, Sarah Stewart Taylor introduced a charis-matic sleuth in Sweeney St. George, a professor of art history specializing in graveyard art. Reviewers raved about the atmos-phere and detail of her New England setting and the moodiness of a sleuth who studies 'the art of death.' Now, Sweeney is asked by police to consult about the death of one of her own students, one who perhaps enjoyed her class a bit too much: Brad Putnam is found suffocated in his dorm room adorned with nineteenth-century mourning jewelry. The situation is even stickier because he is one of 'the' Putnams, a famous and prestigious family, one of the earliest colonial families-and a family whose history is as much gossip and scandal as it is politics and wealth. Once again, Taylor delivers an intricate, suspenseful mystery steeped in the flavor of New England past and present.
