Delivering books to the housebound residents of the Thumb Islands, just a short boat ride from the town of Briar Creek, library director Lindsey Norris befriends two elderly brothers, Stewart and Peter Rosen. She enjoys visiting them in their treasurefilled, ramshackle Victorian home on Star Island, until one day while making the rounds, she discovers that Peter has been killed and Stewart is missing. Making her sixth outing (following On Borrowed Time), Lindsey is determined to solve a murder and find Stewart before he suffers his brother's fate. Or is he somehow complicit in the crime? This book also includes Jenn McKinlay's short story "An Unlikely Meeting," a recipe for Irish Soda Bread, and a readers' guide to Josephine Tey's classic novel The Daughter of Time.
