Beacon Street Mourning: A Fremont Jones Mystery Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Five years ago Caroline Fremont Jones fled the proper world of her native Boston for the independent life of a California private detective. But now, in the winter of 1909, she is grief-stricken to learn of her father’s grave illness.

Still hampered by half-healed injuries from her last adventure — but buoyed by her ever-deepening affection for her partner in love and work, Michael Kossoff — Fremont leaves sunny San Francisco for the ice-edged air and handsome mansions of Beacon Street.

Her visit has scarcely begun when her father, suffering from a malady not even his doctor can diagnose, takes a turn for the better ... only to die suddenly in the middle of the night. Fremont is certain her odious stepmother, Augusta, somehow caused her father’s death. But how? And did she have an accomplice?

Michael questions Fremont’s suspicions ... until an exotic piece of evidence and a second, violent death trigger an investigation that draws upon childhood memories and fears to become Fremont’s most personal one yet.

From the Paperback edition.

Synopsis:

Returning to Boston to see her gravely ill father, turn-of-the-century detective Fremont Jones and her life partner, Michael Archer, become suspicious of Fremont's much detested stepmother, Augusta, but the case is soon complicated by the death of her father, the murder of Augusta, and the discovery of a number of suspects who could be responsible. Reprint.
