 Secrets Worth Killing For –  

The BookLife Prize in Fiction review calls it “a terrific historical mystery”!  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.


Did President John Adams conspire 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.

Both mysteries are available in paperback or ebook format from Amazon online, or ask for them at your favorite bookstore.
