Things really go to seed in the newest novel in the New York Times bestselling Book Retreat mysteries... There is a hidden garden bordering the grounds of Jane Steward’s book-themed resort—a garden filled with beautiful but deadly plants such as mandrake and nightshade. Tucked away behind ivy-covered walls and accessible only through a single locked door, as described in the pages of Frances Hodges Burnett's classic novel, the garden is of special interest to Jane’s current group of guests, The Medieval Herbalists. But when one of them turns up dead, Jane must discover whether a member of the group has come to Storyton Hall to celebrate their passion for plant lore or to implement a particularly cruel means for murder. With thousands of books at her disposal, Jane believes she has the proper materials to solve this deadly problem. If she’s wrong, however, she may lose something far more precious than the contents of Storyton’s secret library... From the Paperback edition.

Shots rang out in Savannah's grandest mansion in the misty,early morning hours of May 2, 1981. Was it murder or self-defense? For nearly a decade, the shooting and its aftermath reverberated throughout this hauntingly beautiful city of moss-hung oaks and shaded squares. John Berendt's sharply observed, suspenseful, and witty narrative reads like a thoroughly engrossing novel, and yet it is a work of nonfiction. Berendt skillfully interweaves a hugely entertaining first-person account of life in this isolated remnant of the Old South with the unpredictable twists and turns of a landmark murder case. It is a spellbinding story peopled by a gallery of remarkable characters: the well-bred society ladies of the Married Woman's Card Club; the turbulent young redneck gigolo; the hapless recluse who owns a bottle of poison so powerful it could kill every man, woman, and child in Savannah; the aging and profane Southern belle who is the "soul of pampered self-absorption"; the uproariously funny black drag queen; the acerbic and arrogant antiques dealer; the sweet-talking, piano-playing con artist; young blacks dancing the minuet at the black debutante ball; and Minerva, the voodoo priestess who works her magic in the graveyard at midnight. These and other Savannahians act as a Greek chorus, with Berendt revealing the alliances, hostilities, and intrigues that thrive in a town where everyone knows everyone else. Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil is a sublime and seductive reading experience. Brilliantly conceived and masterfully written, this enormously engaging portrait of a most beguiling Southern city has become a modern classic.

Children’s book author Lyon Wentworth fights to protect a Vietnam veteran accused of a grisly crime in this chilling psychological thriller. They find her by the river, naked, cold—and dead. Police chief Rocco Herbert recognizes her as the checkout girl at the Murphysville supermarket, an ordinary citizen of the easygoing Connecticut suburb whose death was anything but easy. In one hand, she clutches a First Cavalry Division shoulder patch, the kind handed out by Spook, a traumatized Vietnam veteran who gives the mementos of his old unit to everyone he meets. Maybe Spook killed her, maybe he didn’t, but without Lyon Wentworth’s help, he’s going to hang. A children’s book author with a knack for solving impossible crimes, Lyon and his wife, no-nonsense state senator Bea Wentworth, are Spook’s only hope. But as the couple digs into the circumstances surrounding the girl’s murder, they’ll find that Murphysville hides as many grim secrets as the jungles of Vietnam. There has never been an amateur sleuth quite like Lyon Wentworth, a hot-air balloonist who solves crimes between writing bestsellers. Death in the Secret Garden will push him closer to the limit than he’s ever gone before. Death in the Secret Garden is the 9th book in the Lyon and Bea Wentworth Mysteries, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order.
