On vacation in California, Miss Withersdiscovers that a twenty-minute plane ride is long enough for murder Because of the fog, the man in the brown suit arrives five minutes late for the ferry to Catalina Island. If he wishes to reach his destination today, his only option is the Dragonfly, a twelve-seat prop plane that makes up in speed what it lacks in comfort. The ride is bumpy, and all of the passengers—including a honeymooning couple, a film producer, and a would-be adventuress—find themselves feeling queasy. But none react as badly as the man in the brown suit, who sweats, shakes, and screams, “I’m dying! I don’t want to die!”—and by the time they reach Catalina, he already has. Vacationing schoolmarm Hildegarde Withers notices the corpse when they’re taking it off the plane. An amateur sleuth with a nose for murder, it doesn’t take her long to deduce foul play. But which of the passengers was dastardly enough to commit murder in mid-air? The Puzzle of the Pepper Tree is part of the Hildegarde Withers Mysteries series, which also includes The Penguin Pool Murder and Murder on the Blackboard.

When fellow passengers on a ship bound for London start to disappear, Miss Withers must rely on a mischievous cat to help solve the mystery. Schoolteacher and occasional sleuth Hildegarde Withers has not had good luck with vacations. On her last trip, she found herself enmeshed in the investigation of a dead man on a small plane. Now, on a three-day steamer voyage to London, she’s about to encounter death again. A gruesome joke leads to a young woman going missing from the ship’s aft rail. Is she somewhere onboard, or has she fallen into the sea? In either case, turning about will do nothing for her, so the ship steams on. Soon the passengers descend into a nightmare, as body after body appears. Putting an end to the chaos falls to Miss Withers, who must depend on the testimony of a particularly mischievous silver Persian cat. The teacher and the feline will make it to London safe and sound—so long as their curiosity doesn’t get the best of them. The Puzzle of the Silver Persian is part of the Hildegarde Withers Mysteries series, which also includes The Penguin Pool Murder and Murder on the Blackboard.

Tom und Anna haben das Schlimmste erlebt, was sich Eltern vorstellen können: Ihre 13-jährige Tochter Julie wurde entführt, alle Suchaktionen waren vergebens, die Polizei hat den Fall längst zu den Akten gelegt. Acht Jahre später taucht plötzlich eine junge Frau auf und behauptet, die vermisste Tochter zu sein. Die Familie kann ihr Glück kaum fassen. Doch schon bald spüren alle, dass die Geschichte der Verschwundenen nicht aufgeht. Anna hegt einen furchtbaren Verdacht. Sie macht sich auf die Suche nach der Wahrheit über die junge Frau, von der sie inständig hofft, dass es ihre Tochter ist, die ihr gleichzeitig aber auch fremd erscheint und das gesamte Familiengefüge gefährlich ins Wanken bringt ... Good as Gone ist ein von Anfang an atemberaubend spannendes Buch darüber, wie wenig wir die kennen, die wir lieben. Amy Gentry spielt grandios mit verschiedenen Erzählperspektiven und führt die Leser auf zahlreiche falsche Fährten – bis zum fulminanten Finale.

Interspersed throughout the book are sidebar stories of general interest related to San Francisco's trees. Trees of San Francisco also includes a dozen tree tours that will link landmark trees and local attractions in interesting San Francisco neighborhoods such as the Castro, Pacific Heights and the Mission - walks that will appeal to tourists as well as Bay Area natives.
