The Paperwhite Narcissus

Audiobook

Cynthia Riggs draws from a lifetime's intimacy with fabled Martha's Vineyard and its people to create an irresistible series filled with murder and a unique atmosphere.

When Colley Jameson, the unpopular, egocentric editor of the Island Enquirer abruptly cancels Victoria Trumbull's weekly column, the ninety-two-year-old Martha's Vineyard native takes her reporting skills to the competition and immediately outscoops the Enquirer—with a murder story. Body parts of a local man wash up at two separate locations, and an investigation reveals that he was having an affair with a woman who is fatally poisoned—and just happens to be one of Jameson's ex-wives. A third victim connected to the newspaperman coincides with a series of fake obituaries detailing the ruthless editor's own demise. Certain she's the only person on the island with enough insight to save his skin—and his newspaper—Colley tells Victoria to name her price, before a killer terminates his career ... permanently.

Served by her in-depth knowledge of the island, her sharp wit, and her indomitable drive, the sheriff's deputy is on the trail again: bunions, lilac-bough cane, and all.
