Secrets Worth Killing For Cover

 Now Available – Secrets Worth Killing For – 

“A terrific historical mystery” says The BookLife Prize in Fiction review! Did Thomas Jefferson murder a poor housemaid to hide his role in a treasonous conspiracy? Or to keep his relationship with Sally Hemmings from coming to light? He wasn’t the only prominent man in 1797 Philadelphia, though, who had secrets to hide.



President John Adams’s dreams of his “glorious Presidency” are at stake, to say nothing of the very survival of the United States, when he’s accused of conspiring to murder Thomas Jefferson to stay in power.  Patriots & Poisons,  the first in the Founding Fathers mystery series, lays bare the bitter, highly partisan political conflicts of the early American republic – a time when people could still ask seriously whether declaring Independence was a terrible mistake.
