January 26, 2013 — “And it came to pass, as her soul was in departing …” – Genesis 35:18
Meet Pattrick Clayton, a young farmer in the somnolent Lancaster town of Mockingbird. By all his neighbors he and his family are loved and adored as well-known friends in the community.
Since his father died and his brother was lost to the destruction of the World War, Pattrick has struggled to come to terms with the death that pitilessly pursues him. To make matters worse, not a year has passed since the armistice and Madge Emig, popular town gossip and beloved aunt to the Claytons, is now found poisoned—and to all appearances, she poisoned herself.
Whatever the police may say, the Claytons can’t believe it’s suicide. But before any one can make up their mind, another death strikes the family, even closer to home. And this time there’s no doubt: the unseen hand of murder has struck.
When Leo Westmacott, old family friend and retired private inquiry agent, arrives in Mockingbird, Pattrick quickly recruits his help. Now Westmacott has to readjust himself to the detection game while he delves deeper into these murders, accompanied by the complaisant young Clayton and the charming Miss Slaytor, Leo’s reliable secretary. The more they discover, the more they find that life in the country is not as innocent and docile as may seem. Where human nature resides, danger lurks. …

About the Author: Caleb Peiffer learned to love writing at an age before most American boys learned to love climbing trees or playing baseball. Since his childhood days of Scooby-Doo, Hardy Boys and Trixie Belden through his latter years of Agatha Christie and Dorothy L. Sayers, he has been a lover of the mystery genre. His particular penchant for the Golden Age of Detective Fiction and the era of Sinclair Lewis and F. Scott Fitzgerald has taken him back to the beginning of Prohibition and the launch of the Roaring Twenties to have his own start in fiction and mystery. The Second Death marks the outset of a writer's journey--one that will never end.
