A Veiled Antiquity Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of A Veiled Antiquity

When town recluse Marie Dijon is found dead at the bottom of the stairs to her basement, Torie O'Shea, amatuer genealogist for New Kassel, smells something funny. It wasn't like Marie was that old, she was only in her mid-fifties. When Torie gets a chance to snoop around the house, she finds clues that point to her hunch. It seems that Marie was more than just a recluse, but one with money and a family tree with royal roots all the way to Charlemagne. When someone tries to dig up Marie's grave, everyone agrees Torie's hunch is right. Complicating matters is Sheriff Brooke who has started to date Torie's mother and does not like it when Torie snoops around. Could Marie's family past hold the clue to her murder?
