Children’s book author Lyon Wentworth and his wife, Bea, investigate a murder from the vantage of a hot-air balloon in this charming seaside thriller. For Lyon Wentworth’s birthday, his wife, Bea, gives him something spectacular: a custom wicker basket made to fit his prized hot-air balloon. In return, Lyon gives Bea what she wants more than anything else: a promise to end his career as an amateur sleuth and stop risking his neck to solve impossible murders. But promises are hard to keep, and Lyon will be caught up in another mystery before his feet touch the ground. Lyon is cruising over Long Island Sound when he sees his friend Tom’s private plane spewing black smoke. Before he can radio the coast guard, the plane crashes and is swallowed by the waves. Tom was an expert pilot, and Lyon is certain that he wouldn’t have made a fatal error. Perhaps the plane was tampered with . . . But when a phone call from Tom comes after his supposed death, Lyon realizes this murder has taken the leap from improbable to impossible. Richard Forrest’s Lyon and Bea Wentworth Mysteries are some of the most intelligent thrillers ever written. As witty and urbane as Dashiell Hammett’s Nick and Nora Charles, the Wentworths approach homicide with effortless style. Death Through the Looking Glass is the 3rd book in the Lyon and Bea Wentworth Mysteries, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order.

Charming husband-and-wife sleuthing team Lyon and Bea Wentworth visit the estate of a power-mad manufacturer in this classic manor-house mystery. Children’s book author and occasional sleuth Lyon Wentworth arrives at the Piper estate prepared to come face to face with death. The leading manufacturer of landmines, the Piper Corporation is no stranger to casualties, but the estate is being besieged by protestors and the pressure is getting to them. Head of the family Peyton Piper has always exerted firm control over his kin, but as he prepares for a Senate bid, he’s pulling the leash even tighter. Family historian Markham Swan fears one of the Pipers’ lives is in danger—but Markham himself will catch the first two bullets.

Lyon will deploy every ounce of his considerable charm in trying to unravel the mystery, but that may not be enough. When the Piper family turns on itself, the results will be explosive. Written in the style of a classic English murder mystery, The Pied Piper of Death will charm fans of Agatha Christie and Dorothy B. Sayers. Staged with Richard Forrest’s trademark wit, it’s an undeniable classic.

When he learns a bullet was meant for his wife, children’s author Lyon Wentworth investigates an assassination, in this irresistible political thriller. On a sunny afternoon in Murphysville, Connecticut, the village green of the charming suburb is filled with voters who have come for a glimpse of Randolph Llewyn. Everyone’s attention is locked on the stage as state senator Bea Wentworth introduces the candidate for governor—everyone, that is, but Bea’s husband, Lyon, who is daydreaming of a title for his latest children’s book. Lyon snaps back to attention, however, when a sniper’s bullet cuts Randolph down as he takes the stage. A second bullet misses, but the damage is done. As the crowd erupts in panic, Lyon spots the assassin fleeing on a motorcycle. With police chief Rocco Herbert, Lyon gives chase, but the killer gets away. Only then does Lyon think of Bea, who is shaken, but unharmed. But when he learns that Bea was also a target, the mild-mannered children’s book author must find the courage to hunt an assassin before he strikes again. Written in the rough-and-tumble political climate of the late 1970s, The Wizard of Death is a small-town thriller unlike any other. Starring a delightful husband-and-wife sleuthing team, it’s as quick and shocking as an assassin’s bullet. The Wizard of Death is the 2nd book in the Lyon and Bea Wentworth Mysteries, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order.

A children's book author and his wife investigate an impossible murder that's over thirty years old in this intelligent, absorbing small-town thriller. Murphysville hasn't seen a triple homicide since the Indian raids. But when an anonymous tip sends police investigators digging in a remote field, they find three rotting skeletons. One of them is missing an arm and another is that of a child who died with a doll clutched to her chest, the only clue to the grisly murders. Clearly, life in Lyon Wentworth's cozy Connecticut suburb is far darker than it once seemed. A children's book author and hot-air balloonist, Lyon has a personal stake in this unsolved crime: He lost a little girl long ago. With the help of his wife, Bea, a no-nonsense state senator who's losing her hearing but not her quick wit, Lyon pursues the investigation even after the police pronounce the cold case impossible to solve. Lyon and Bea will find justice for the girl who died in the ditch – or they'll die trying. Richard Forrest's thrillers are uniquely realistic, showing ordinary people grappling with horrible crimes. This gripping page-turner introduced the world to Lyon and Bea Wentworth, a husband-and-wife sleuthing team in the tradition of Dashiell Hammett's Nick and Nora Charles. A Child's Garden of Death is the 1st book in the Lyon and Bea Wentworth Mysteries, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order.

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.
