Fun mystery set in Concord, Mass., center of the 19th century Transcendalist movement.

The first book in the mystery series with Homer Kelly and Mary Morgan. There is a secret that turns Concord, Massachusetts from a living museum of transcendental America to a dangerous place. This is not only a good mystery but also a learning experience of the Transcendental movement.

Set in New England, a classic cozy mystery. New York Times says "I've never read a mystery novel that makes more loving and evocative use of its locale than this one" Published as a Murder Ink series entry.

1st in the series, although they can be read independently, as I did. I read everyone and couldn't wait to pick up the next. I have all on my bookshelf as of this writing. Loved it!
