Eggs over Arsenic: A 19th Century Historical Murder Mystery (The Agora Mystery Series Book 7)
A childhood nemesis. A threat seemingly from beyond the grave. Murder by Monday…
A mysterious letter sends Carl Brooke and Rutherford Nordlinger off to the aid of a man who, accused of murder, is now threatened by the man he is said to have killed.
“Well, hello there,” I said with some relief. “I am so very glad it is you.” “Mr. Brooke,” Nordlinger said, smiling, “by the handle of the revolver I see coming out of your pocket, it seems you were expecting the devil instead.” “Very close.” I motioned for him to enter. “Very close, indeed.” I headed to the bureau, returning the weapon to its proper place. “Do come in and have a seat.”
In the style of Arthur Conan Doyle, Clay Boutwell brings back the Agora Society and its premier scholar, Carl Brooke. This is the seventh short story in the Agora Series.
