It is Christmas time and Matt Dalton is not feeling the spirit of the season. There have been too many deaths of friends in the last year. She is still upset that she did not reach the market in time to prevent Garry’s death. Matt is on crutches because of the accident that prevents her from arriving at the market in time. Duncan can only see her in disguise as the mystery writer has sent another letter. The clues are a willow leaf and a blue aster. The letter was written in green ink The Capone Club has accepted another murder to investigate. The convicted killer’s sister insisted he is innocent of killing his wife. As the group explores the incident the facts of the case indicate that he has been wrongly convicted. Mal O’ Riley is still accompanying Matt as her bodyguard. As Matt sees little of Duncan, she began to feel for Mal. Will Matt and Mal find the answer in time to prevent another death? Can the Capone Cub find evidence to free the convicted man?
The twists and turns this tale takes at Christmas time will hold your attention until the book is done. I highly recommend this book.
