Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Hart masterfully whips these intrigues together with her sleuths' interesting, nonmystery lives and their sometimes antagonistic friendship...to add a fine sauce to a hearty, Minneapolis-flavored mystery dish."
--Rocky Mountain News on The Iron Girl

 

"Hart always spins a great tale, and she once again lives up to her reputation as a distinctive and wonderful weaver of mystery.... A highly recommended tale full of charm, sincerity, and just the right amount of poignancy to make for a wonderfully entertaining read."

--New Mystery Reader Magazine on The Iron Girl

 

"Incorporating societal ills torn from the headlines, Hart bares the weaknesses in her well-realized characters as well as their strengths...[A] spunky page-turner."

--Publishers Weekly on An Intimate Ghost

 

"The tension in this mystey moves the reader to commit violent acts of speed-reading."

--Minnesota Women's Press on An Intimate Ghost

 

"Jane Lawless is back, causing fans of Hart's long-running series to cheer...Hart keeps us turning the pages as she cleverly shows past sins contaminating current lives."

--Booklist on An Intimate Ghost

Synopsis:

After years spent mourning the death of her partner, Christine Kane, Minneapolis restaurateur Jane Lawless thinks she's ready to move on. That is, until she finds a gun among Christine's belongings. The night before Christine died of cancer, three members of the Simoneau family, Christine's real estate clients, were murdered. The timing of their deaths appeared coincidental and Jane always assumed Christine knew nothing of the family's secrets. But as she searches for clues to understand what really happened all those many years ago, the gun and a few other discoveries begin to convince Jane otherwise.

 
Where past and present collide, Ellen Hart's latest mystery in this Lambda and Minnesota Book Award-winning series proves that she remains one of the genre's best.
