Death Takes No Bribes

Death Takes No Bribes

An Endurance Mystery

Retired teacher-turned sleuth, Grace Kimball, returns to her old high school to investigate the poisoning of Endurance High School Principal John Hardy.

Endurance detective, TJ Sweeney, asks Grace to help navigate these treacherous waters. The murderer is a cold-blooded killer who will not hesitate to kill again. They have no end of suspects. The chemistry teacher who has been teaching about poisons? A spurned lover or her  betrayed husband? A soon-to-be-wealthy widow? To top that off, the drama teacher is producing “Arsenic and Old Lace.” Not the best timing.

Meanwhile, Grace’s boyfriend, Jeff Maitlin, has disappeared on some mysterious errand from his past. Then, Grace gets devastating news. Death is stalking the halls of Endurance High School, and Grace Kimball and TJ Sweeney are only a few steps ahead.
