Another great Mrs. Murphy Series. I love them all!! This is one of my favorites, as it has intersting facts on Monticello, and Jefferson's Life and family. This was topical when it was written, as it alludes to Sally Hemmings, thought to be Jefferson's African American Mistress.
The third Mrs. Murphy mystery, coauthored by novelist Brown and her cat (Mrs. Murphy is also a feline), in which the purring detective must solve a mystery involving the discovery of a body during archeological excavations at Thomas Jefferson's old estate.
The most popular citizen of Virginia has been dead for nearly 170 years. That hasn't stopped the good people of tiny Crozet, VA, from taking pride in every aspect of Thomas Jefferson's life. But when an archeaological dig of the slave quarters at Jefferson's home, Monticello, uncovers a shocking secret, emotions in Crozet run high-dangerously high.
