A no-nonsense politician and her children's author husband search for answers to a retirement-home homicide in this gripping small-town murder mystery.

Fabian Bunting wheels herself down the hallway of the nursing home, opera glasses clutched in her gnarled old hands. Outside, nurses on strike have formed a picket line, and Fabian wants to watch the commotion. As she peers through her binoculars, she sees something incredible: two men beating another senseless and tossing the victim into the back of a van. One of the thugs sees her, and before she can call for help, he has raced upstairs and tossed the helpless old woman into a scalding steam bath to boil alive.   In her younger days, Fabian was a brilliant scholar, and the favorite professor of Connecticut politician Bea Wentworth, who has just been defeated in a re-election campaign. Bea refuses to believe her old teacher's death was an accident and begins investigating. With the help of her husband, Lyon, a hot-air ballooning children's author, she'll find the answers to Fabian's grisly murder lie at the center of an impossible locked-room puzzle.  

The Lyon and Bea Wentworth Mysteries are unique for their blend of traditional mystery elements and hard-driving, page-turning action.

The Death at Yew Corner is the 5th book in the Lyon and Bea Wentworth Mysteries, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order.

'[This] is the most traditional book in the series to date," wrote the New York Times. "It also may be the best."

'[Forrest] writes with a sure hand, and as always, leavens the writing with a touch of humor. . . . A neat, well-plotted, expertly written job. The New York Times Praise for the Lyon and Bea Wentworth Mysteries.

'[A] superb novel of detection ... An intricate plot intelligently controlled' Publishers Weekly on A Child's Garden of Death.
