Still Life with Murder
Welcome to 19TH CENTURY BOSTON where even power and
privilege won't save you from the hangman's noose.
First in the new historical series featuring Boston
governess Nell Sweeney
Boston 1868: The wealthy are enjoying the height of the
Gilded Age-but not all are wealthy. As governess to the
Hewitt family, Irish immigrant Nell Sweeny is sent to
discover the truth behind the rumor that their son-thought
to be killed in the Civil War-was still alive and in prison.
Finding the young man convicted of a murder he did not
commit, Nell won't rest until she has proven his innocence.
But with no evidence, Nell must make haste-before the
hangman's noose tightens around William Hewitt's throat.
