Needlework shop owner and part- time sleuth Betsy Devonshire finds a Nazi skeleton buried beneath the floor boards of an old cabin she is renovating and works to uncover a decadeold crime.

This book is complicated by the unsolved case of a missing child. Stories Of Living With Diabetes by Allan L.

All The Devils Are Here by Bethany McLean Chronicles the major contributors to the economic crisis, sharing narrative assessments of the roles played by Wall Street, the mortgage industry, the U.S. Government, and leading financial institutions.
