Cross creates unforgettable characters who probe the baffling conundrums that seek them out: the disappearance of an unpopular university colleague, "gone before anyone told her that they loved her" ... the enigma of the nameless toddler who walks out of the bushes one New England summer afternoon ... the cold-blooded murder of Mrs. Byron Lloyd, shot dead during a writers' panel discussion ... the theft of a seventeenth-century painting from a lonely Texas convent ... the reappearance of a missing Constable drawing just where it can cause the most trouble ... and other wonderful mysteries, many of which star the incomparable private investigator Kate Fansler.
