KATHARINE SCHELLMAN is a former actor and one-time political consultant. These days, she writes the Lily Adler Mysteries (Crooked Lane Books) and the Nightingale Mysteries (Minotaur/St. Martin’s Press). LAST CALL AT THE NIGHTINGALE, her newest release, is a PUBLISHERS WEEKLY Summer Reads Pick for 2022 and a BOOKPAGE Most Anticipated Mystery & Suspense Book of 2022. Her debut novel, THE BODY IN THE GARDEN, was one of SUSPENSE MAGAZINE’s Best Books of 2020 and led to her being named one of BOOKPAGE’s 16 Women to Watch in 2020. Its sequel, SILENCE IN THE LIBRARY, was praised as “worthy of Agatha Christie or Rex Stout.” (LIBRARY JOURNAL, starred review) Katharine lives and writes in the mountains of Virginia in the company of her husband, children, and the many houseplants she keeps accidentally murdering.
When she attends a dinner party for the school, she expects to engage in conversations about the university's large expedition to the Amazon. What she doesn’t expect is for Mrs. Henry, one of the professors’ wives, to drop to the floor, poisoned by an unknown toxin.
Dr. Maxwell, Saffron’s mentor, is the main suspect and evidence quickly mounts. Joined by fellow researcher--and potential romantic interest--Alexander Ashton, Saffron uses her knowledge of botany as she explores steamy greenhouses, dark gardens, and deadly poisons to clear Maxwell's name.
Will she be able to uncover the truth or will her investigation land her on the murderer’s list, in this entertaining examination of society’s expectations.
