"It's unusual, to say the least, for a woman to learn of her own murder from the written confession found in another, and quite dead, woman's purse.

In the long run, what she has always considered her most potent weapon-her money-turns out to be her weakest point, as Andrew Basnett, a retired professor, discovers when he arrives for a quiet Easter weekend visit. Instead, he finds a household rife with hatred, a family torn by suspicion, a victim practically issuing an invitation to murder."; Ex-Library; 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall
