Dark Swan

Children's book illustrator Calista Jacobs is house-sitting in posh Beacon Hill and gets a peek into the world of wealth and privilege of the old guard Boston Brahmins when she befriends neighbor Queenie Kingsley.

Unfortunately, Calista is also the one who discovers Queenie's lifeless body, a pair of garden shears protruding from her heart. Certain she can stand up to women called Bootsie and Titty, she enlists the aid of her teenage son, Charley, and Queenie's colorful brother-in-law, Rudy, and ventures behind the family's polished exterior.

And what she discovers are the ugly, dark secrets steeped in tradition... secrets worth killing for.
