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. The slugs that kill him are tiny little things, antique bullets that date back to the Civil War. 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.

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.

The Death and Life of Charlie St. Cloud tells the haunting story of a young man who narrowly survives a terrible car wreck that kills his little brother. Years later, the brothers’ bond remains so strong that it transcends the normal boundaries separating life and death. Charlie St. Cloud lives in a snug New England fishing village. By day he tends the lawns and monuments of the ancient cemetery where his younger brother, Sam, is buried. Graced with an extraordinary gift after surviving the accident, he can still see, talk, and even play catch with Sam’s spirit. But townsfolk whisper that Charlie has never recovered from his loss. Into his carefully ordered life comes Tess Carroll, a captivating, adventuresome woman training for a solo sailing trip around the globe. Fate steers her boat into a treacherous storm that blows her back to harbor, to a charged encounter with Charlie, and to a surprise more overwhelming than the violent sea itself. Charlie and Tess discover a beautiful and uncommon connection that leads to a race against time and a desperate choice between death and life, between the past and the future, between holding on and letting go. Luminous, soulful, and filled with unforgettable characters, The Death and Life of Charlie St. Cloud is one of those rare, wise books that reveal the mysteries of the unseen world around us, gently transforming the worst pain of loss into hope, healing, and even laughter. Suspenseful and deeply moving, its startling climax reminds us that sometimes tragedies can bring about miracles if we simply open our hearts. From the Hardcover edition.
