Nighttime is My Time

Twenty-five years later, Jean Sheridan returns to Stonecroft Academy as an honoree. Upon arrival, she learns that five of her lunch table friends have died, in order by seating, and only one friend remains. All died a mysterious death with one thing in common: a one-inch pewter owl left at the crime scene.

Adding to the tension are some faxes Jean recieves concerning a daughter she gave up for adoption. And even more worrying, the last member of her old group disappears, leaving Jean as the last target. The police search for her, but to no avail. Whether or not she is still alive remains a question. The identity of the murderer remains hidden…though his victim isn’t.

    Oooo….sounds like a mystery I would like. Thanks!

  • Aaahh! It’s fantastic! Her books make me afraid. You know those kind of mysteries where you finally figure out who the murderer is and you start yelling at the book, telling the characters to watch out, and hoping no one is listening. This is one, but you never figure out the murderer. Another I highly recommend is “Daddy’s Little Girl”
