Penguin Putnam When a human skeleton is found buried on the grounds of the famed Bracketts House--the historic home of the author Esmond Chadleigh--Carole Seddon and Jude must determine whether the beloved writer's sword was mightier than his pen...and whether the snobbish, squabbling trustees of Bracketts House have something to hide....
Baker & Taylor When a human skeleton turns up buried on the grounds of Bracketts House, the historic home of celebrated children's author and fantasist Esmond Chadleigh, Home Office retiree Carole Seddon and her bohemian neighbor, Jude, step in to investigate whether or not the famed late writer was responsible. By the author of The Torso in the Town.
Blackwell North Amer The life of noted man of letters Esmond Chadleigh - poet, children's author, essayist, fantasist - is celebrated in the halls of the Bracketts House. However, despite the efforts of the house's trustees, most of Chadleigh's work remains out-of-print - leaving the once famous literary figure out-of-sight and out-of-mind...and Bracketts out-of-funds. An American literature professor with a big interest in Chadleigh - and an even bigger bankroll from the university where she's tenured - can keep Bracketts running, in exchange for assistance on her Chadleigh biography. But the mistrustful trustees are afraid the biographer is only interested in rooting out the skeletons in Chadleigh's closet - especially after uncovering one in his garden. Now, Carole and Jude must risk tarnishing the sterling reputation of a beloved author to learn whether his sword was mightier than his pen.
