Will the real Ethan Cambell please stand up?

on 11/28/2007

Well Bred And Dead is not a murder mystery. It is a novel containing elements of suspense, mystery, romance and humor. Pauline Cook, almost destitute widow (destitute being a relative term), finds her friend Ethan dead, an apparent suicide. Problem is there are multiple birth certificates in his room. As Pauline sets out to learn the truth she learns more than she bargains for. This is a very funny and well written book but readers should be aware that some of the people Pauline encounters use language that is more than off-color. Hard back collectors should also be advised that this book is available only in trade paperback.

Product Overview

Newly widowed Pauline Cook was once the toast of the Windy City elite--but now she''s practically broke. At least she''s in better shape than her dear departed friend Ethan Campbell, whose corpse Pauline has had the misfortune to discover. A writer who chronicled the lives, loves, and ensembles of the Gold Coast''s most elegant ladies, Ethan apparently took his own life--while inelegantly clad in old boxers, no less. And since no relatives are coming forward to claim Ethan''s remains, it falls to Pauline to settle his final affairs . . . with her own dwindling funds.

However, there are things about Ethan''s suicide that don''t seem to add up: the ratty undergarments he "chose" to die in, for example . . . and the multiple birth certificates the police turn up in his apartment. Before she can truly lay her friend to rest, plucky Pauline''s determined to get to the bottom of his increasingly suspicious death.
