Description
In this 24th entry in the Agatha, Anthony, and Macavity Award–winning series from MWA Grandmaster Carolyn Hart, mystery bookstore owner Annie Darling is embroiled in not one but two murders in the same week in her South Carolina island community. First, beloved doctor Paul Martin is found shot dead, seemingly by his own hand. Only days later, a local artist is arrested after his wife Jane is found bludgeoned by her husband's sculpting mallet. But Paul's sister refuses to believe her brother killed himself, and gives Annie a cryptic drawing Paul made, seeming to link him with the murdered woman. Did someone want them both out of the picture?

"It's a lovely October day on Broward's Rock, the offshore island where Annie Darling has her bookstore, Death on Demand. Jane Corley and Irene Hubbard are playing golf, enjoying a midweek game and looking forward to a birthday party for Jane's younger brother. Within the week, however, Jane will be dead, bludgeoned with a mallet used by her artist husband; her murder follows by a couple days the presumed suicide of Dr. Paul Martin. The mayor announces that the police chief has arrested Jane's husband and believes the case to be wrapped up, refusing to listen to the protests of the doctor's sister, or to believe that the two deaths are connected. But Annie and her husband, Max, do listen and puzzle over the sketch Martin had left. So Annie and Max, with help from the Intrepid Trio—Henny Brawley, Emma Clyde, and Max's mother, Laurel Roethke—go into action to find the real killer. They enlist Marian Kenyon, the reporter for the island's newspaper, to help ask the questions they cannot. Fans know it's always nice to visit Broward's Rock, especially in the off-season."—Booklist
