Highboy

This mystery novel is replete with quirky New England characters like inventor Miles Cooper who lives with his mother Sarah in sleepy Longfield, New Hampshire. No sooner has his old Harvard classmate Hugh Quint hung his parka on a peg than the ex-Boston Police Department detective is asked to investigate a family crisis. Miles' sister Amy is missing and the family lawyer dead. An extremely valuable antique highboy chest of drawers in Mrs. Cooper's will brings on a slew of suspects. Could Miles be crazy enough to kill for his latest invention scheme? Did Eric Cornplanter kidnap Amy to buy back Indian land in the White Mountains National Forest? What about the couple who lost the highboy in a poker game? Once only the seasons changed in Longfield. Now it's WELCOME TO PSYCHOVILLE.
