Description
Retiree sleuths Lilian and Ada find that though their town might look postcard pretty, there’s something rank festering below the surface . . . Lilian Campbell and her best friend and lover, Ada Strauss, are woken early by the sound of sirens: the local nursing home, Nillewaug Village, is ablaze. The police and fire chiefs find evidence to suggest the fire was accidental, but Detective Mattie Perez can’t help but wonder why the smoke alarms didn’t work. Soon, it’s looking less like accident and more like arson . . . and Lil and Ada are swept up into an investigation that grows increasingly more complex, and frightening, by the hour.

New England's lesbian senior sleuths return in "this winning second entry in a thriller series you simply must try" (Library Journal).

Widows Lil Campbell and Ada Strauss are exploring their newfound romance when they are woken early by the sound of sirens. The local nursing home in their quaint Connecticut town is ablaze. Thankfully, the residents are safe and sound, including Ada's mother. Administrative director Delia Preston, who appears to have jumped from the roof, isn't so lucky. But when Delia's death is ruled a homicide, suspicion spreads like wildfire that it was arson.

Compelled to investigate, Lil and Ada discover Delia's ties to three of the wealthiest and most respected men in town—one of whom was just about to flee the country. But that's just the first flicker of a clue. These three former local football heroes share a very dark past and they aren't the only ones who want to keep it buried. As Lil and Ada get closer to the truth, the case gets hotter and more dangerous with every revealing hour.
