Baker & Taylor An expert in the field of graveyard art, professor Sweeney St. George is called in by police to help investigate the death of one of her students, Brad Putnam, a young man found suffocated in a dorm room adorned with nineteenth-century mourning jewelry, in the sequel to O' Artful Death. Reprint.
Sweeney St. George concedes that having lunch in Boston's Mount Auburn Cemetery might be a bit macabre. Yet the graveyard fits her interests as an art professor with a specialty in cemetery statuary and mourning jewelry. And although she doesn't yet realize it, this historic burial ground is one of the last places on earth her favorite student, Brad Putnam, scion of a famous Boston family, sees before someone murders him.
Because of her expertise, the Boston police ask Sweeney to help them track down the antique jewelry found with Brad's body. Her investigation soon leads to chilling information about the influential Putnams, an earlier death, and Brad's secrets. Complicating everything is her attraction to Brad's rakishly charming older brother Jack. Now, Sweeney St. George is about to walk a dark and dangerous path...where passion can be dangerous and where a killer waits.
