Another Southern Mystery by Henrietta Ford

  ISBN 1-4137-2076-5

This is the second edition of my very popular Williamsburg/James City County mystery.  I use another cover this time, and the format is different.  However, the mystery has remained unchanged.

The  misty swamps and imposing mansions of Tidewater Virginia have long been the setting for stories of mystery and suspense.  When Sheriff Benjamin Day and Ignatius Harder accompany their friend, Matt Murray to James City County Virginia, their holiday is abruptly interrupted when the body of Matt's cousin, Noah, is found floating among a bevy of crab pots in the murky waters of the James River.  The police determine that Noah was murdered.  However, their investigation is thwarted as a hurricane churning off the coast suddenly turns inland and sets its eye straight for James City County.
Matt and his friends seek refuge in his cousin's two-hundred year old mansion where ghostly inhabitants and inexplicable happenings are rumored to occur.  As the hurricane rages the three men launch their own investigation into Noah's death.  In the course of their investigation, they inadvertently lay bare family secrets, deceit, and treachery--and discover the shocking identity of Noah Murray's murderer.
