A Hated Matriarch. A Family of Suspects.
Crotchety, irritable, self-centered, rich Miss Annamae Dyer has been found clubbed to death in her study, and who had a reason to kill her?
Just about everyone. From her conniving, scheming nephew Robert, who inherited most of her considerable fortune; to her nieces, cool, superior Katherine Yates and artsy, hot-tempered Marie Mackenzie, both mysteriously written out of Annamae's will; to her cousin, Donna Skelly, who has been put upon and abused by the whole family; to her cold-as-ice personal assistant Taylor Bradford—none of them liked her.
In fact, none of them much liked each other, either.
In a family where every-man-for-himself is the watchword, and there's a cool couple of millions at stake, someone wanted the old lady out of the way.
But who... and why?
Now, silver-haired Parsifal Snowe and his team of agents have to tease apart the evidence and sift through the lies and the deception and the secrecy—in order to find out who killed a nasty-tempered old lady whose death went unlamented by just about everybody she knew.
About the Author
His interest in the paranormal goes back almost that far, although it has always been tempered by Gordon's scientific training. This has led to a strange duality; his work as a skeptic and debunker on the popular blog Skeptophilia, while simultaneously writing paranormal and speculative novels, novellas, and short stories. Poison the Well is his eighth published novel, and the second in his Snowe Agency Series of psychic mysteries.
Gordon blogs daily, but is never without a piece of fiction in progress-driven to continue, as he puts it, "because I want to find out how the story ends."
