Jane Tesh. A Little Learning. Scottsdale, AZ: Poisoned Pen Press, 2009.

Madeline Maclin “Mac” Fairweather has it all: an adoring husband, Jerry, recognition as a budding artist, and notoriety as a successful private investigator after solving multiple murders in Celosia, a small (fictional) North Carolina town. Life is never dull for the former beauty queen, and this week is no exception. On Sunday, she is asked to crack a difficult, time-sensitive riddle that involves a large inheritance. While giving an art presentation on Monday, a despised teacher collapses from a heart attack, although Mac thinks the death is suspicious. And on Tuesday, séance-enthusiast and former conman Jerry is attacked while working at the local bookstore. How could seemingly harmless children’s collectible cards drive someone to use force on a stranger?  Are all of these mysteries connected, and will they be solved in time and without more deaths? Mac Fairweather, PI, is just the woman for this complex and dangerous job!

A Little Learning is Jane Tesh’s third book in her Maclin Investigations mystery series.
