A Death of No Importance
If it is your job to make sure the silver is clean, you must have a sharp eye for tarnish.
New York, 1910—a time of great wealth and greater inequality. Orphan Jane Prescott is a lady’s maid for the nouveau riche Benchley family. When Charlotte Benchley becomes engaged to the socially prominent Robert Newsome Jr., murder is in the air. And when the groom-to-be is found battered to death, Charlotte tops the list of suspects. As the woman few people notice, but who notices everything, Jane scrambles to keep the Benchleys out of a scandal—and Charlotte out of the electric chair.
The Girl in the Park
In a starred review, Publishers Weekly called this a "haunting psychological thriller" and "profound, provocative commentary on what it means to grow up in the age of Facebook."
When Wendy Geller's body is found in Central Park after the night of a rager, newspaper headlines scream,"Death in the Park: Party Girl Found Strangled." But shy Rain, once Wendy's best friend, knows there was more to Wendy than just "party girl." As she struggles to separate the friend she knew from the tangle of gossip and headlines, Rain becomes determined to discover the truth about the murder.

Who will confess?
