Overview

Each year the residents of Nether Haddon celebrate the village's founding in the time-honored way--with games, music, and performances by their sword dancers. But something new is added to the fancy footwork this year: a team member dies ... murdered.
The inquiry soon becomes as tightly interlocked as the five swords, or rappers, used in the dance, a series of complicated turns, jumps and clogging steps as intricate as Celtic knots. Group anger and jealousies explode during the investigation. Physical intimidation and implied extortion threaten to destroy the group and the dancers' lives.
While CID team investigate the murder, unbeknownst to Brenna, King Roper, a career criminal, has escaped from prison where he was serving time for murder. Now free and eager to settle the score for his capture, Roper tracks down Brenna's whereabouts, ready for revenge...

Meet the Author

A month-long trip to England during her college years introduced Jo to the joys of Things British. Since then, she has been lured back nearly a dozen times, and lived there during her professional folksinging stint. This intimate knowledge of Britain forms the backbone of both the Taylor & Graham mysteries and the McLaren cold case mystery series.
Jo's insistence for accuracy, from police methods and location layout to the general "feel" of the area, has driven her innumerable times to Derbyshire for research. These explorations and conferences with police friends provide the detail filling the books.
In 1999 Jo returned to Webster University to major in English. She graduated in 2001 with a BA degree and departmental honors.
Her cats Chaucer and Tennyson share her St. Louis home.
