"A superb book."

THE HOUSTON CHRONICLE

When quiet, shy Amelia Jones reads a desperate message that has fallen out of a barrel organ in the antique shop she just bought, she can't forget the words, "They're going to kill me soon..." Armed only with the woman's first name and the note written years before, Amelia begins a journey into the past, a search that takes her from the protective cocoon she's wrapped herself in to a precarious world where nothing is the way it seems, where fear is second nature, and dark secrets just might uncover murder--her own....

Dorothy Gilman takes a very fresh approach to the "poor little rich girl" character.
Amelia was very young when her mother committed suicide, then her emotionally distant father died soon after, and she grew up feeling unneeded and unnoticed. She's wandering through her life, without purpose. Until she buys an antique and finds a note: "They're going to kill me soon."

I was enthralled from the beginning, couldn't put it down. Much like the Mrs. Pollifax mysteries. A roller coaster ride of twists and turns with realistic characters and very well plotted.
