The Death of Colonel Mann
A Beacon Hill MysteryBook - 2001
In life, he was the most despised man in Boston, publisher of the town's scurrilous gossip sheet--and buyer and seller of peoples' most scandalous indiscretions. Now Colonel William d'Arcy Mann lies on the floor of his fashionable hotel suite, the victim of a single gunshot wound to the heart. Addington Ames came to recover a packet of love letters written by his young cousin, Val, that had fallen into the blackmailing colonel's possession. But when he discovers Mann's corpse instead, Ames suddenly finds himself at the center of a murder inquiry, his name splashed across the town newspapers.
