about

With “clever storytelling” shifting between past and present, the final Homer Kelly mystery has the scholar/sleuth solving the puzzle of a missing church (Booklist).
 

Somehow, against all odds, Homer Kelly has become famous. After decades toiling in academic obscurity, the Harvard professor has a book on the bestseller list. To capitalize on his sudden fame, Homer’s editor demands another book, and fast. Homer is working on Steeplechase, a tour of churches in and around his little patch of Massachusetts, and at his editor’s request he goes searching for some ancient gossip to spice up his new work. What he finds is a baffling Reconstruction-era mystery.

 

Hot-air balloons, nursery rhymes, and the great chestnut tree in the village of Nashoba all form part of Homer’s ancestors’ thrilling story. As the tale shifts between 1868 and the present day, a picture emerges of a small-town Massachusetts that’s hardly changed, and a secret which, if it weren’t for Homer, may have stayed buried for all time.

One of Penguin's top-selling mystery authors, Jane Langton is the author of fourteen other Homer Kelly mysteries.
