Bones of a Feather

Carolyn Haines

A ruby necklace worth four million dollars appears to have been stolen, and its owners, Monica and Eleanor Levert—twin heirs of a wealthy Natchez clan—seem a bit too anxious to get their hands on the insurance money. It sounds a tad suspicious to Sarah Booth, who's been asked to file a report, but she can't be sure someone's committing fraud—or any other crime, for that matter—until one of the sisters is kidnapped…

The police suspect the heiresses are playing some sort of game. But when Sarah Booth and her partner Tinkie begin to scratch the surface of the family's sordid past, they uncover more skeletons than any one closet can hold. Throw in a sneaky romantic gardener, a lurid tell-all biographer, and a body plunging off a plantation cliff, and the kidnapped twin plot thickens. But Sarah Booth really starts seeing double when Jitty the ghost shows up—as a pair of sisters—and two crimes become deadlier than one…
