Description

Gregor Demarkian returns in a mindbending case of death and disappearance amongst the wealthy suburban elite.

In Waldorf Pines, a very rich, gated suburb of Philadelphia, ostentation and pretension are the order of the day. But even by the local standards, Martha Heydrich is a stone cold pain. She's the stay-at-home wife of a very rich husband, drives a pink sports car everywhere and is on all the prominent local committees. She's fake, into everybody's business and is rumored to be having an affair with a local teenager, Michael Platte. One morning she seemingly vanishes from her house and later that night her husband Arthur returns home to find the pool house ablaze. Once the fire is extinguished, the police discover two bodies--one is Michael Platte and the other, too damaged to be recognizable, is

presumed to be Martha Heydrich. The police think they know what happened--that Arthur killed his wife and her lover over the affair. But then the DNA results come back and the second body isn't Martha's at all, it is an unknown man. With their theory in tatters, and Martha nowhere to be found, the police to turn to ex-FBI agent Gregor Demarkian to help them unravel this most puzzling of cases.

Publishers Weekly Review

Jan 16, 2012 – Edgar-finalist Haddam shows no sign of creative fatigue in her baffling 27th whodunit featuring ex-FBI agent turned police consultant Gregor Demarkian (after 2011’s Flowering Judas). One night at Waldorf Pines, a gated Philadelphia suburb, Arthur Heydreich, whose unfaithful wife, Martha, has disappeared, stumbles on a corpse in the community swimming pool, just when the pool house goes up in flames. The body in the pool is that of Martha’s teenage lover, Michael Platte. Charred human remains discovered in the pool house are presumed to be Martha’s, until DNA analysis proves they’re male. The local eccentric police chief, who originally thought Arthur murdered Martha and Michael, calls in Gregor to make sense of the case. Few readers will reach the answer to this crafty puzzle before the endearing and brilliant sleuth, or tease out the significance of the clue of the extra garden hose.
