The search of the grave of a Revolutionary War soldier takes a bizarre turn when four members of the Old Orchard Fort chapter stumble on a modern-day corpse. Though the sheriff dismisses the body as a transient battered in a drunken brawl, one of the ladies, organist Helen Delaporte, has other ideas. First, there are the victim's finely manicured hands...and then there is the map dropped at the scene of the crime.Soon the members, including feisty, eighty-six-year-old Harriet Bushrow, are rebels with a cause, mounting an investigation of their own. Of course, when the press catches wind of it, they go to town. the coveted publicity for their chapter sets the ladies reveling...until Helen's windshield is showered with bullets...and it's clear that their new pet project could spell deadly ends for them all.Told in the alternating voices of chapter members and other colorful characters, Graham Landrum's stunning debut novel is the first in a delightful series narrated by members of the community of Borderville (smack on the Virginia-Tennessee line).

The play was A Doll’s House-not at all the sort of play to commemorate an anniversary-but very well staged. It was a clear, cool evening with a nearly full moon high above the Blue Ridge as we drove. I thanked Henry for a lovely evening

Graham Landrum writes a droll novel of murder and mayhem in a small town, with the DAR ladies in hot pursuit of a ruthless killer. A wonderful who-dun-it, and a fast-paced read. I enjoyed every minute of it, and wish Graham Landrum was still with us to work his magic again and again.

Talk about The Famous DAR Murder Mystery

Have read it twice over the years, and shared with others. DAR setting is amusing & the characters interesting. Combining various people's "reports" into a natural flow of the story is quite fun, especially how each "reporter" has a different style (viewpoint, vocabulary, experience of the story, opinions, etc.). The locale is well described, and the genealogy involved is helped out with a simple chart.
The author clearly has knowledge of some DAR ladies. I thought the mystery was interesting and it was also very very humorous too. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes interesting mysteries (that aren't gory) or likes the DAR!
I am a DAR Lady and laughed out loud through much of it. Graham Landrum has the ladies down pat. Although because of technology chapters no longer seek the once greatly desired print inches, and junior members today may not relate to that, but it was fun to remember.
Quick read! Fun adventure! Identified with the older ladies!
Perfect little book for the DAR lover. Wrapped nice. Book does not look new though as described.
cute fun read for any DAR member. Won't mean much to anyone else.
I loved this funny murder mystery. As a new member of the DAR it was a very interesting story for me and I highly recommend it to all Daughters of the American Revolution.
Book entertained me from the very beginning. The characters were people I knew from DAR. I'm passing the book around to my DAR friends who all rave about it.
