Expert clockmaker Ruth Clagan has another murder on her
hands in the third Clock Shop Mystery from the author of
Clock and Dagger.
Years ago, the serenity of picturesque Orchard,
Massachusetts, was shattered by a fire that destroyed the
town's beloved clock tower. Ruth inherited the dream of
repairing it from her late grandfather. Now that she’s
returned home to run his clock shop, the Cog & Sprocket,
she’s determined to make it happen, despite wrenches that
are being thrown into the works by her least favorite
person, town manager Kim Gray.
A crowd of residents and visitors are excited to see the
progress of the tower at a fund-raiser for the campaign,
until Kim is found crushed under the tower’s bell, putting
an end to all the fun. The list of suspects is so long it
could be read around the clock, and it includes some of
Ruth’s nearest and dearest.
