The Alpine Obituary: An Emma Lord Mystery (Mass Market Paperbound)
SPECIAL EDITION: MURDER
Not even in Alpine, Washington, could the death of octogenarian Jack Froland be considered big news except by his drinking buddies at Mugs Ahoy. But that suddenly changes when in the middle of the funeral, Jack's widow hysterically insists that he was murdered. Emma Lord, publisher of "The Alpine Advocate," who is already investigating a threatening letter received by the town's beautiful blonde judge, now suspects she has two hot stories to unravel. Backed by her House and Home editor, that bottomless repository of scandal Vida Runkel, she prepares for a triple-threat special: murder, blackmail, and as wildfire sweeps the mountainside possible arson as well. But success will not come cheap. With a killer roaming the woods, it may cost Emma her life. . . .

About the Author
Mary Richardson Daheimstarted spinning stories before she could spell. Daheim has been a journalist, an editor, a public relations consultant, and a freelance writer, but fiction was always her medium of choice. In 1982, she launched a career that is now distinguished by more than sixty novels. In 2000, she won the Literary Achievement Award from the Pacific Northwest Writers Association. In October 2008, she was inducted into the University of Washington s Communication Alumni Hall of Fame. Daheim lives in her hometown of Seattle and is a direct descendant of former residents of the real Alpine, which existed as a logging town from 1910 to 1929, when it was abandoned after the mill was closed. The Alpine/Emma Lord series has created interest in the site, which was named a Washington State ghost town in July 2011. An organization called the Alpine Advocates has been formed to preserve what remains of the town as a historic site."
