About this ebook

A dead boy, a cougar, and peanuts…

There's no time for celebrating the holidays when a young messenger boy's corpse is discovered just outside Manatas. Snake had ambitions of bettering himself, but as Halvar, Selim, and the Town Guard seek for the lad's killer, they discover signs of a plot that could endanger the entire city.

Then a noted master of mathematics is discovered dead in the Madrassa. Halvar's instincts tell him the two deaths are connected, but unearthing that link may present his most complicated puzzle to date. And, of course, make him a target yet again.

About the author

 Roberta Rogow writes historical fiction, although she sometimes twists the history. Her most recent stories take place in a Manhattan Island that was settled by Spanish Moors instead of by Dutch traders: Last of the Mohegans meets Arabian Nights, with a Spanish accent. Roberta retired from a 37-year career as a children's librarian in 2008. She now lives in New Jersey, and spends her time going to science fiction and mystery conventions when she is not writing mysteries or singing filk (science fiction folk music).
