Baker & Taylor
Married outside of her blue-blood class to a genius investor who takes frequent business trips, features writer Maddie Dare endures long weeks alone in her industrial-city home and becomes involved in an investigation to clear her favorite cousin from a double murder charge. 30,000 first printing.

Blackwell North Amer
Closet debutante and fledgling journalist Madeline Dare would be the first to tell you her money is so old there's none left. The summer of 1988 finds her in the rust belt of upstate New York, pining for her often-absent, farmboy-genius-inventor husband and desperate to escape dreary Syracuse.
Maddie's job writing lightweight features for the local paper is an unlikely source for her longed-for ticket out of town - until she's shown a set of dog tags found at the site of an unsolved double murder. Eerily, the name on the tags is that of her favorite Oyster Bay cousin, the golden boy of a vindictive and still powerful branch of her family. Maddie knows full well that the rich are not only different - they can also be dangerous. But she's desperate to prove him innocent.
When she returns to her childhood home to investigate, Maddie finds herself trapped in a minefield of explosive, long-buried family secrets, and her search for the truth triggers a string of grisly new murders. The trail of blue blood will lead from Gatsby's posh Long Island back to the derelict smokestacks of Syracuse ... and right to Maddie's own door.

I really liked this book and I was so surprised when I read the cover to find that it was Cornelia Read's first book. The characters particularly the protagonist, were well rounded and believable.
The mystery was great, I really looked forward to my next opportunity to pick up the book.
I am really looking forward to reading more from this author.
