Harry Starke loves a cold case, but this one is really cold – more than a hundred years cold.
Family Matters is a whimsical tale, a flight of fancy. It takes place on the lonely coast of Maine, where Amanda, a true believer in the paranormal, has inherited – you guessed it – a haunted house. Or at least that’s what the rumors say.
It all begins when Amanda inherits the house, substantial assets, and a large sum of money from her grandmother. The windfall comes with a request to look into the disappearance of Elizabeth, Amanda’s great-great-grandmother, more than a hundred years ago.
Harry, a skeptic, a down-to-earth investigator who believes only in the facts, has a tough time dealing with Amanda’s…fantasies? We all know that the imagination can play tricks on a susceptible mind, especially when that mind is under stress. But is it just their imaginations? Could it be something more?
You’ll have to be the judge.
The Harry Starke Novels, Book #6
Rosemary HUGHES –
This is a murder mystery, a hundred years in the past, to be solved with very little in regards as clues and only gossip for testament.
Harry helps Amanda with an inheritance that includes an isolated hotel, in Maine. There is speculation about her grandmother and grand step mother’s deaths. Part of the bequest is, that Amanda and Harry look into the incidents of death for her forebearers.
This is a very different Harry Starke episode, showing Harry out of his normal environment and thrown into situations that has him questioning his own sanity.
Another intriguing yarn, that have you trying to out think the feisty P.I.
