organ is, of course, the prime suspect. She sets out to solve the mystery of why she inherited from a man she detested. Meanwhile, she's being stalked by the real murderer. In the midst of it all, she's falling for one of the investigating detectives.
aving a soap opera writer as a main character in a mystery series is ingenious. Palmer's characters are so well developed you'd like to meet them. Morgan's history is woven into the story and her past could inspire a prequel.
