Herbalist and ex–lawyer China Bayles is "in a
class with lady sleuths V. I. Warshawski and Stephanie
Plum."* In Widow's Tears, a haunted house may hold the key
to solving the murder of one of China's friends...
After losing her husband, five children, housekeeper,
and beautiful home in the Galveston Hurricane of 1900,
Rachel Blackwood rebuilt her home, and later died there,
having been driven mad with grief.
In present–day Texas, Claire, the grand niece of
Rachel's caretaker, has inherited the house and wants to
turn it into a bed and breakfast. But she is concerned that
it's haunted, so she calls in her friend Ruby—who has
the gift of extrasensory perception—to check it out.
While Ruby is ghost–hunting, China Bayles walks
into a storm of trouble in nearby Pecan Springs. A half
hour before she is to make her nightly deposit, the Pecan
Springs bank is robbed and a teller is shot and killed.
Before she can discover the identity of the killers,
China follows Ruby to the Blackwood house to discuss urgent
business. As she is drawn into the mystery of the haunted
house, China opens the door on some very real danger...
