A Bantam Book / July 1992. Bantam paperback edition / August 1992. Death on Demand series # 8. New York: Bantam Books 1992. Paperback, 290 pages.

Southern Ghost was in the bookbag Toss sent me last fall when she was clearing out their shelves. The book sounds interesting, I hope I'll find the time to read it before releasing.

1993 Anthony Award, Best Novel nominee

From back cover:
Annie Darling, owner of the Death on Demand bookstore, is shocked to hear talk about her husband, Max, and a beautiful blonde. By the time she's faced down a hostile police chief and bailed Max out of the Chastain, South Carolina, jail, the lady has vanished and Max is the prime suspect in an unspecified crime. The baffling, bloodstained trail leads straight to the doorstep of Tarrant House, home of a venerable Southern family with a violent history dating back to the Revolution—and ghosts of a far more recent vintage.
Annie and Max find that the dignified facade of Tarrant House hides a hotbed of deadly passions as the family turns on itself in a mayhem of murderous motives and angry accusations. But in the end Annie must summon all her sleuthing skills to stop a desperate killer who is ready to strike again to keep the secrets that haunt the Tarrants from the light of day....

Kesis toi Columbus-miittiin, kiitos.
Hartin mysteerejä on kehuttu ja yksi sellainen jo odottelee hyllyssä lukuvuoroaan. Siksi kiinnostuin tästäkin listan ensivilkaisulla ja kannen kissan nähtyäni en voinut enää vastustaa. Hienosti askarreltu kirjanmerkkikin. Kiitos niin kirjoista kuin taas koko VPK:sta, Tarna!

Mysteerin voi noutaa luettavakseen Jätkäsaaren Little Free Librarysta. Lukuiloa löytäjälle!

Picked this up from the LFL outside the International School as I was leaving a book there. My car was running so that the battery would not die, so I was in a hurry. I'm not into ghost stories as such, but I thought I might be able to tag somebody with this. It was only later that I noticed the plot is set in a bookstore, which is always a bonus to old bookshop-keepers like me.
