FromUSA TodayandSeattle Timesbestselling author Mary Daheim comes the newest Pacific Northwest crime novel starring the indefatigable newspaper editor-publisher Emma Lord. THE ALPINE OBITUARY Not even in Alpine, Washington, could the death of octogenarian Jack Froland be considered big news--except by his drinking buddies at Mugs Ahoy. But that suddenly changes when in the middle of his funeral, Jack's widow hysterically insists that he was murdered. Emma Lord, publisher ofThe Alpine Advocate, who is already investigating a threatening letter received by the town's beautiful blonde judge, now suspects she has two hot stories to unravel. Backed by her House and Home editor, that bottomless repository of scandal, Vida Runkel, she prepares for a triple-threat special: murder, blackmail, and--as wildfire sweeps the mountainside--possible arson as well. But success will not come cheap. With a killer roaming the woods, it may cost Emma her life. . . . InThe Alpine ObituaryMary Daheim demonstrates once again why she is a nationally bestselling author acclaimed for her "smoothly readable style" (Ellery Queen's Mystery Magazine) and her "witty one-liners and amusing characterizations" (Publishers Weekly).
