A Homer Kelly Mystery Mystery

Book - 2002
Rate this:
Cambridge, Massachusetts, is home to Homer and Mary Kelly, Harvard University, the Mount Auburn Cemetery, and Leonard Sheldrake. Leonard, Homer's friend, often compares the many-faceted Cambridge to a favorite engraving, filled with strange power and wonder, by the twentieth-century Dutch artist Maurits Escher. So he is thrilled when Cambridge hosts an Escher exhibit. There, Leonard is smitten by a mysterious woman in a green coat named Frieda who is equally enthralled by the artist's brilliance. But Frieda hurries off without divulging her last name, her address, or her phone number.

Despite their all-too-brief encounter, Leonard is now desperately in love with this elusive woman-and desperate to find her. Homer and Mary offer to help, but soon their search takes on the aspect of an Escher-etched labyrinth in which they will encounter past murders and present secrets, modern fortune- tellers and the graveyard ghosts of Mount Auburn. A feast of art, erudition, intrigue, and humor, The Escher Twist is a fantastic read for Jane Langton's legion of fans.
