Murder at Monticelloby Michael Prichard
Invited to the virginia bicentennial celebration of Jefferson's presidency, Homer is excited to join the festivities. But more than fireworks are about to explode at Monticello. A scholar is working on a book exonerating the founding father from latter-day criticism and scandal. Camped in the dark woods behind Monticello is a young trespasser, Tom Dean, who swears that the only Jeffersonian good deed was his sponsorship of the Lewis and Clark expedition. And somewhere a vicious murderer of local women is on the prowl. When Tom is arrested as a prime suspect, Homer is drawn into the lives of the two troubled Toms: Jefferson, with the historian; and Dean, with the law. Langston weaves together scholarship, style, murder and mayhem to create a mystery masterpiece.
