Pages In Read Ink: Mysteries ofThen and Nowchallenges mystery lovers to beat the author to the punch! "The Hunt for the Gray Ghost" challenges a theory that is hard to dispute: Was Abraham Lincoln the victim of a Confederate conspiracy or was he the victim of a cabinet member's passion to succeed him as president? Even heroes can be turned to conspiracy,fellows can becomeenemies,and adversaries become comrades. Can a former legacy of Las Vegas divas ("To Be Too Rather than Too") find the killer of a high-powered divorce attorney when so many would pawn their limos and diamonds for a share in a hitman? In "The Problem with the Monsignor"Patricia McGuire, Sister of (Show 'em No) Mercy keeps the police on task as they investigate the assault to commit murder on the Head Master of a school for over-privilged boys. A "Motion to Dismiss?" could be taken from the headlines of the nightly news cable station. Does a departed soul take $30,000 worth of plastic surgery and a martyr's death to heaven in "Is This Don Giovanni or Is It Really Hell?"

Pages In Read Ink touches every period of history and every profession. I have found victims and felons from the best stations of life. But the lives of murderers, extortionists, and homicide police make much better company than saints.

Jeane Heimberger Candido has by turns been a marketing and advertising manager, newspaper reporter, photographer, columnist, freelance writer, Civil War historian, living historian, and commentator. Her first books The Redemption of Corporal Nolan Giles and Shepherd's Song were of the Civil War. She has written for Blue & Gray Magazine, Civil War Historian Magazine and has appeared as an on-air historian for the PBS documentary Call to Care. Jeane has survived eighteen years of Catholic Education and has been married to an engineer for almost thirty-five years. She has two children: Anne Marie is an engineer and married to an engineer. Son Robert is a pilot and also an engineer. She was the only right-brained person in her family and therefore, the only one in her right mind--until recently. Soon she will be blessed with a daughter-in-law who is an ordained minister.
