A murderer stalks the orange groves of 1923 Southern California.
Detective Sidney Snipes is called to the Harrington Manor when retired Colonel Peter Wescott Harrington is found slumped over his desk by his family. Snipes entrusts the sensational new crime fighting technology—Fingerprint Analysis to find a fierce fiend.
Just when he thinks he has the murderer cornered, an unsolved missing person cold case rumples his proficient sleuthing skills. Then another Harrington turns up dead. And a sinister child’s Jack-in-the-box seems to have come from the grim reaper himself.
The case leads Snipes in a direction he never saw coming.
Praise for Harrington Manor:
“Harrington Manor is James at his very best.”-Publisher’s Weekly
About the Author:
Ronald James was born during the great depression, and as a toddler watched WPA men build a new street, from his home’s big front window. His playmates were a red rider wagon, a small black satchel and rocks. By using his imagination he had conversations with mythical street workers that bloomed into fashioned fantasies by age four. He used cardboard boxes to create fun spaces for his neighborhood playmates to enjoy and he kept telling stories all through high school. In college he abandoned writing and studied architecture. James had a successful architectural career and retired, however he wanted to keep his creative juices fluent, so he returned to his childhood story telling days and joined a writers group. Like architecture, each day he couldn’t wait to create, finish, and start new stories—like, Harrington Manor.
