The morgue is that cold and sterile facility where medical examiners do their necessary but, to many of us, dreadful work. Less familiar is its dry and dusty version, usually housed in the bowels of newspaper buildings, where old story clippings are filed away. Dolly Madison Sprowls has been in charge of the Hannawa Herald-Union's morgue for more than 40 years. She is gruff and salty, well past the age of retirement, the unchalleneged queen of her ink-stained domain. Reporters call her Morgue Mama--but only behind her back. Maddy Sprowls' well-ordered world gets turned upside-down when the paper hires 24-year-old Aubrey McGinty for its police beat. Aubrey loses no time in questioning the conviction of Sissy James for the murder of TV evangelist Buddy Wing. Yes, Sissy had quickly confessed to poisoning the famous preacher live on television--and the evidence does seem overwhelming--but the ambitious young reporter doesn't believe Sissy is guilty. Why, then, her claim? Aubrey enlists Morgue Mama's help and together they begin a harrowing search for the truth. Digging into the morgue's file, they soon, and dangerously, uncover enough suspects to fill a church with those who do the devil's work....
From the Publisher:
Ambitious young reporter Aubrey McGinty enlists the assistance of Dolly Madison "Morgue Mama" Sprowls, who has been charge of the Hannawa Herald-Union's morgue for more than forty years, to help her prove that Sissy James, the convicted killer of TV evangelist Buddy Wing, is not guilty of the crime. (Mystery)
When a horse is stolen from the decrepit Foxdale Farm, barn manager Stephen Cline barely manages to escape death. He swears to solve the case--and, if he fails, the kidnappers will undoubtedly return to finish him off.
