At the Sign of the Crippled Harlequin

by Norman Robbins

Presented by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc.

A good, old-fashioned murder mystery with more twists and turns than Pontiac Lake Road.

The Peak Lodge Guest House has a long and mysterious history, rumored to be haunted by the ghost of the original Coashing Inn host.

The Lockwoods are struggling to keep the inn open, and the guests have their own secrets.

This light hearted thriller has something for everyone -- chuckles, mystery and a rattling good winter's tale.
