A Scarlet Death
by Elaine Viets
Angela’s new case is full of dark secrets and scandal, but shocking events closer to home prove to be her biggest challenge yet . . .
Nobody in Choutaeu Forest expected one of their most prominent citizens, socialite Selwyn Skipton, to be found dead in such salacious circumstances: strangled on satin bedsheets, a red letter A brutally stapled to his chest, in his private apartment above the Chouteau Forest Chocolate Shoppe.
Selwyn was a good man. He gave to charity, supported local causes, and was married to his wife for more than twenty years. What did he do to deserve such a terrible end?
As Death Investigator Angela Richman investigates, she uncovers Selwyn’s dark secret, but also faces an unexpected, chilling conundrum closer to home . . .
