Victoria Trumbull, a fiesty, alert and lively 92-year-old protagonist, tracks murders (and murderers) on Martha's Vineyard, the lovely, sun-splashed island off Cape Cod. Double Murder includes the first two of seven books featuring Victoria. In Deadly Nightshade, villains suspect Victoria has witnessed a murder and must silence her. In The Cranely Orchid Murders, land developers and environmentalists are pitted against each other and is based on a real Island political debate. In both, the subject is...Murder.
