    deadlyadagioFeatured Author of the Day: Carole Howard

    Emily Radly chafes at being a tag-along spouse while her husband tries out a Foreign Service career in Dakar, Senegal.

    When Margaret, her closest friend and fellow violinist in an amateur expat-orchestra, is garroted with a violin string, Emily is devastated. She also fears the official investigative team is leaping to “random anti-American violence” as its conclusion.

    Emily delves into her friend’s private life for clues. She discovers Margaret was involved in a campaign against the traditional practice of female genital mutilation. Could that be behind her murder?

    She risks a visit to the village where Margaret’s anti-cutting activities were centered. A crude and threatening drawing appears in her purse soon afterwards. When the Peace Corps volunteer in that village is also murdered, Emily is certain her own life is in danger.

    Mini Interview with Carole Howard, Author of DEADLY ADAGIO

    Second Wind: What inspired you to write this particular story?

    Carole Howard: I knew I wanted to write a mystery. (That’s because no one told me how really hard it is!) And I knew I wanted it to be set in Africa. And I knew I wanted it to involve an amateur orchestra. After that, I had to figure it out. First I decided who the victim would be, then who the murderer would be, and then I had to keep finding and re-finding inspiration. But I did!
