Deadly Nightshade is the second book in the Henry Gamadge Mysteries series. There is talk of war all over the radio, but Gamadge finds himself in Maine as this book begins. He was invited here by Detective Mitchell who has a really tough case on his hands and needs Gamadge’s help. The case that he’s working on features three different children who have been poisoned with nightshade, a deadly plant, and no motive to link the children together. They all live in the same community, but that is the only real lead. There is a nearby encampment of travelers who could be involved. There is also the recent death of a state trooper that may be related. Gamadge will sort through the facts and try to find the killer before it’s too late.

The sixth book in the series is called Evidence of Things Seen. Henry’s wife Clara is off to a cottage in Berkshire for the summer. The place is haunted by the ghost of a woman in a sunbonnet, but that’s okay with her. Until the day the woman’s sister is strangled while Clara sleeps. Her only memory is of the woman in the sunbonnet. Henry will arrive just in time to help her figure it all out.
