BONES IN THE BACKYARD
A Bashia Gordon Mystery
by Florence W. Clowes and Lois J. Blackburn, Infinity Publishing, 2001, 198 pp, pb.
In the quiet corner of northeastern Connecticut, semi-retired interior decorator, Bashia Gordon, turns amateur sleuth when she and her Peace Corps friend, Dottie Weeks, uncover a fragmented skeleton in a septic tank. How did it get there? Who is it?
Trooper Mark Jankowski arrives on the scene, and is intrigued by Bashia. Identifying the long-dead victim becomes a
challenge for Jankowski. Bashia’s curiosity, intuition and Internet research skills keep her involved. Could the bones be the wealthy eccentric who disappeared years ago?
