Baker & Taylor
A new resident of wealthy Dorset, Connecticut, New York film critic Mitch Berger is thrilled to make the acquaintance of famed American sculptor Hangtown Frye, a semi-recluse, but when Hangtown's daughter is found murdered, Mitch joins forces with his lover, Desiree Mitry, to investigate the homicide. Reprint.

McMillan Palgrave
So much for the peace and quiet New York film critic Mitch Berger expected to find in his antique carriage house overlooking Long Island Sound. Nothing can shelter him from the goings-on in nearby Dorset. A violent death in a speeding Porsche...an attempted suicide by the school superintendent...and dirty politics are about to propel Mitch out of the shadows into a starring role. And then there's his new love, resident state trooper Desiree Mitry...

Des has transferred out of her position as the highest-ranking black woman in the state police homicide department to give more time to the art for which she has a sure talent. But as she soon learns, Dorset's bucolic exterior hides some ugly secrets. The femme fatale daughter of a famous local sculptor is killed in a car explosion that makes tabloid headlines. Now Des is on the case, saddled with a pushy former colleague, and reaching out to Mitch for an extra pair of eyes-and arms-in a case that threatens to tear the town apart...

There seems to be a lot going on in the historic village of Dorset these days, where New York film critic Mitch Berger is hoping to get some peace and quiet. But all that is turned upside down when a violent death is a speeding Porsche--an attempted suicide by the school superintendent--and dirty politics, Yankee-style abound.
