Someone who hated Carol enough to write a tragic ending to her life story. Someone who is preparing to edit Emma and Vida right out of existence....
One of a series of Martha's Vineyard mysteries. A death that looks accidental turns out to be murder, but the "detective" has to really push to get the facts to prove it, almost to the point of becoming another victim! Fun read.
