Edition: First printing.
Aurora, CO: Write Way Publishing, (1998) dj. SIGNED hardcover first edition - The author's first novel and the first in the series of Elderhostel mysteries. "Unable to generate enthusiasm for anything since his wife's death, retired physical therapist James P. Dandy has let his children cajole him into attending an Elderhostel at the Jersey shore. But the other participants seem indistinguishable except for their name tags - sall but Dodee Swisher, a gallery owner determined to create her own laboratory component for their class in bonsai gardening. . . A bonus in this winsome, if guileless, debut is a short course in how to style a bonsai plant and use it as a murder weapon." (Kirkus Reviews) SIGNED on the title page. 239 pp. ISBN: 1-885173342.
