Murder in the Museum: An Edmund Decleryk Mystery

Adult; Mystery/Thriller; (Market)

Early one gray November morning, retired Lighthouse Cove,NY police chief, Edmund DeCleryk, finds Emily Bradford's body at the base of the bluff where the museum and historical society stands. At the same time, a break-in has been reported in the museum, and Emily's coat and purse are found hanging on a peg in the museum's gift shop. Was her death the result of a burglary gone bad or something more sinister? When the police chief is called out of town for a family emergency, he hires Ed, now working as a criminal consultant, to assist deputy police chief, Carrie Ramos, with the investigation. After several leads don't pan out, the chief, now back in town, decides to close the case. Confident that with more time the murder can be solved, Ed is determined to continue on his own, with help from his wife, Annie, the museum's executive director. One morning while in the basement of the museum, the couple discovers a copy of a map dated 1785, and Ed's instincts tell him it may be connected to Emily's death. On a hunch, he and Annie travel to Toronto, Canada, where he learns of the original map and a manuscript written in 1847 that were unearthed during an archaeological dig. The manuscript contains information about a ship that capsized during a fierce storm on Lake Ontario-in 1785. Now Ed has clues as to why the murder occurred, but he still doesn't know who committed the crime. Or does he?

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this murder mystery with all its twists and turns. The setting on the shores of Lake Ontario is captivating and the historical angle is compelling. The many details help flesh out the characters and their motivations. It is a good introduction to what promises to be a series of interesting and entertaining mysteries with the DeCleryks
