1. Not Death, But Love: A Quill Gordon Mystery (Volume 3)
DescriptionA PAEAN TO BOOKS, A MEDITATION ON LOVE, AND A POLICE PROCEDURAL WITH NO POLICE. With the words, You look like an honest man, retired English teacher Charlotte London approaches Quill Gordon in a small-town caf, gives him a manila envelope for safekeeping, and turns his fishing trip upside down. That night, a fire destroys her house, her body is found in the ruins, and Gordon finds himself the unwitting custodian of her family history and personal journal from 25 years ago. When the politically sensitive sheriff seems content to call the fire an accident, Gordon and his friend Peter Delaney join forces with an aging-hippie newspaper editor, a librarian who talks too much, a factoid-obsessed local historian, and Charlottes best friend to investigate the death. Is the critical clue in the family history, which digs into a controversial land development and suggests her fathers accidental death may not have been so accidental? Or is it in her journal, where, amid reflections on Pride and Prejudice and Anna Karenina, Charlotte chronicles a clandestine love affair? Something in those documents is worth killing for, and the investigation becomes increasingly personal (and perilous) for Gordon and his associates, who need a solution before one of them becomes the next corpse.
2. Wash Her Guilt Away: A Quill Gordon Mystery (Volume 2)
DescriptionThere will be no love at Harrys! Harry Ezekians daughter-in-law, rumored to be a witch, put that curse on his once-venerable riverside lodge, a Mecca for fly fishermen and philandering politicians. For two decades afterward the place went downhill, but a new owner has fixed it up. Expert angler Quill Gordon, who made his debut in the well reviewed first novel The McHenry Inheritance, and his friend Peter Delaney have come to check it out. A stretch of bad weather throws the lodges visitors too close together for comfort, and sexual tensions simmer, just as the curse predicted. Then the bored and restless young second wife of a middle-aged businessman is found strangled in one of the cabins locked from the inside and surrounded by snow with no footprints leading in or out. When it turns out that the victim had been flirting, or worse, with all the men at the lodge, everybodys a suspect, and Gordon finds himself trying to help a baffled detective answer two questions: For which person at Harrys did love turn murderous, and how could a seemingly impossible crime have been committed?

The acquaintances he encounters there lead him to investigate distasteful allegations concerning a murder and to make a choice, when he forms a judgement on a colleague's character, which has far-reaching consequences for his own future. Eventually he needs to move away from the town but when he travels to Yorkshire and Dublin old enemies menace him and the good faith of former supporters is uncertain. When he returns to London his prospects become increasingly entwined with the conflicting interests of rival noblemen and their followers, while his personal happiness is threatened by distressing inconsistencies in the relationship which becomes central to his life. He strives to fill his professional role with integrity, albeit recognising there are limitations on medical knowledge at the time, and is confronted with a range of conditions generally believed to be beyond the skill of a physican and attributable to supernatural influences. Caught up in the turbulent history of the period, he is forced to observe the downfall of a man he knows well and he becomes aware that the intriguing woman he loves may have secrets which threaten his peace of mind. Violent events bring the story to an end and set up the scene for the fifth book in the series.
