Death at Charity's Point by William G. Tapply

A Boston lawyer investigates a prep school teacher’s suspicious suicide
Brady Coyne never meant to become the private lawyer to New England’s upper crust, but after more than a decade working for Florence Gresham and her friends, he has developed a reputation for discretion that the rich cannot resist. He is fond of Mrs. Gresham—unflappable, uncouth, and never tardy with a check—and he has seen her through her husband’s suicide and her first son’s death in Vietnam. But he has never seen her crack until the day her second son, George, leaps into the sea at jagged Charity’s Point.
The authorities call it a suicide, but Mrs. Gresham cannot believe her son, like his father, would take his own life. As Brady digs into the apparently blemish-free past of this upper-class prep school history teacher, he finds dark secrets. George Gresham may not have been suicidal, but that doesn’t mean he wasn’t in trouble.

I loved William Tapply and his lawyer-dectective, Brady Coyne, and this book is a good entry in the series. The main mystery comes together earlier to the reader than the protagonist, but it's a fun trip to the 1970s.

I purchased this inexpensive ebook for my new Nook. The only William Tapply books I'd read in the past were the three he'd written with Philip Craig, all of which I'd enjoyed. He has an engaging style, a likeable character and interesting plots. Death at Charity's Point started me on the Brady Coyne series. I have a lot of catching up to do. I highly recommend this first-in-the-series mystery.

However had several big holes in plot e. g. Where and what happened to son in nam ? how did he plan to prove anything by conjector of the missing girl. Look forward to more in the series. Mom
