A Midtown Murder Mystery. Kansas City police detective and psychic profiler, Clara Carson, and the unlikely detective, Jack Jackson, join forces again in solving their second cold case murder mystery. In September, 1936, in spite of the stock market crash of 1929 and the Great Depression, twenty-four-year-old heiress Pony Boyd remains one of the richest and most powerful in town, and won't let anyone forget it. Pony and her estranged husband, the handsome Dr. Ed Evans, have just returned from their summer in Europe when she dies a violent death during a welcome-home party being given in her honor. She dies wearing an extravagant necklace of jewels that once belonged to Russian royalty. Despite multiple suspects, including her husband, his nurse, and most of the people closest to her, the coroner rules Pony's bizarre death was accidental. Now, more than fifty years later, Pony's grand house lies derelict, abandoned, and untouched. Her bedroom is just as she left it, even her personal automobile is still in the garage, but everything must be cleared out and sold. The task falls to the only remaining heir, the nephew of Ed's second wife. He contacts Jack and Clara for help when he finds hidden treasure in the house, along with long-hidden clues about Pony's death that can no longer be ignored. Second in series.

With America quietly gearing up for war in the Middle East, twenty-year-old Tassie Keltjin, a 'half-Jewish' farmer's daughter from the plains of the Midwest, has come to university - escaping her provincial home to encounter the complex world of culture and politics. When she takes a job as a part-time nanny to a couple who seem at once mysterious and glamorous, Tassie is drawn into the life of their newly-adopted child and increasingly complicated household. As her past becomes increasingly alien to her - her parents seem older when she visits; her disillusioned brother ever more fixed on joining the military - Tassie finds herself becoming a stranger to herself. As the year unfolds, love leads her to new and formative experiences - but it is then that the past and the future burst forth in dramatic and shocking ways. Refracted through the eyes of this memorable narrator, A Gate at the Stairs is a lyrical, beguiling and wise novel of our times.
