In the 1930s unfolded a dramatic list of events in which there was an act of lust followed by adultery, suicide, a killing and finally the possibly inevitable mystery. This list of events occurred in Titchfield, a large community in the parish of Portland, Jamaica. It all began with the lust of a white woman for a Jamaican young man called Gunta. A thrilling story of lust, deceit, betrayal, sex and murder.
Thirty-something Mara Gilgannon finds herself back in her dinky hometown of Aldoburg, Iowa, helping her Aunt Zee keep her struggling radio station alive while unraveling clues surrounding the murder of Glad, Zee's longtime partner. Mara begins to suspect that Glad's vocal opposition to a Wal-Mart opening in the town, an issue that has sharply divided Aldoburg, may have more to do with the murder than was originally supposed. But nothing is ever simple-especially when a beautiful police officer catches Mara's eye. Mary Vermillion is an associate professor of English at Mount Mercy College in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. She is a member of Sisters in Crime, and her writing has appeared in Birthday Blessings and Testimonies.
