Posing in Paradise

Harry Reese Mysteries

Book 6
Street Car Mysteries

 In 1905, the great Henry James arrives in Northampton, Massachusetts, to deliver a lecture to the local literati. He is feted in a grand style—and so is the Englishman impersonating him.

In the meantime, a vacationing Harry Reese has stumbled upon a body marinating in an abandoned canal bed. But rather than report the corpse, Harry decides to use it to distract his wife Emmie from her own literary ambitions. Then the body vanishes. Twice.

These two plots, each sufficiently ludicrous in its own right, coalesce to produce a truly remarkable story, one that dares to answer the age-old question: is it possible for a man to drown in his blancmange?

About the author

 Finding himself misplaced in the 21st century, Robert Bruce Stewart has opted to retire to what he hopes will be a more congenial era for a person of his sensibilities by means of fiction writing. Meanwhile, his temporal self lives with his wife and cat in a small-town hermitage in western Massachusetts where he spends his idle hours tending to the needs of tadpoles and keeping his ill-mannered bamboo grove in check.
