"In this new book, Bland's seventh, Marti MacAlister's partner, Matthew Jessenovik - Vik - interrupts Marti's honeymoon when the estranged, mentally ill son of one of Chicago's wealthier families is found dead in his run-down Lincoln Prairie basement apartment. Who could have cared enough to bash in the head of a man who lived alone and kept completely to himself?" "But at least that murder victim has a name. For this unlikely detecting team must also look into the discovery of a mummy in the closet of a long-shuttered historic theater. Who was the woman, and when and how did she die? The clues they have to go on are few and far between, and the town's secrets seem to be as closely guarded as the boarded-up building - there's no telling what a little light on the subject will show."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
