Detective Sergeant Gabriel Dunn must deal with the richness of Salem, the puzzle of family, and the finality of death

Blackwell North Amer
A stunning young woman with a promising career and no apparent enemies is found with a bullet in her head, sprawled on the living room floor of her North Salem, Massachusetts, apartment.
Having made his debut in Requiem for a Postman, Detective Sergeant Gabriel Dunn of the Salem Police Department returns in this witty and poignant new mystery by Margaret Press. This time, Dunn sets out to probe an apparent suicide, crack a series of break-ins, and recover a box of valuable baseball cards.
Dunn soon discovers that Moira Doheny had been running with a gang of thieves from whom she wanted to escape. Chronic headaches from a mysterious accident had left her with constant pain and partial amnesia. Are these reasons for her suicide or clues to lead Dunn to the apprehension of her killer?
Who benefits with Moira out of the game? Can a 1953 Willie Mays help Dunn break the deadlock in this case?
Elegy for a Thief is about taking chances on desperate plays. It is also about cops and robbers, men and women, the richness of Salem's history, the intoxication of flight, and the finality of death. And, in the end, it is a compelling mystery.
