Orpheus in our World:New Poems on Timeless Forces Patricia Keeney
When a sleazy TV program threatens to tell all about retired opera superstar Carlotta Moses - and the child she allegedly abandoned years ago - the singer´s protective family engages investigator Patricia Delaney to find out who originated this whopper and buy them off. But is this tabloid tale possibly true? As Patricia plunges into a violent, heart-wrenching search for the facts, she faces an even uglier possibility. For within the mystery of Carlotta Moses´s dark past lurks a chilling, infinitely more deadly secret.When Patricia Delaney debuted in 1994, she was a cutting-edge, first-of-her-kind eGumshoe. Now, the reprinted editions (from Cornerstone Communications), with updates to reflect their times, of the Patricia Delaney eGumshoe mysteries still resonate with timeless humanity and passion, while providing a look back at the 1990s, when technology began to change forever how private investigators worked. 1.

Exclusively from Audible Molly Gibson, the only daughter of a widowed doctor in the small provincial town of Hollingford, lost her mother when she was a child. Her father remarries wanting to give Molly the woman´s presence he feels she lacks. To Molly, any stepmother would have been a shock, but the new Mrs. Gibson is a self-absorbed, petty widow, and Molly´s unhappiness is compounded by the realisation that her father has come to regret his second marriage. Although Molly resents her stepmother, she befriends her new step-sister, Cynthia, who is loveable, but worldly and troubling. The audiobook chronicles their maturation into womanhood within the confines of the gossiping and watchful society of Hollingford.
