Tarnished and Torn
A Gem Show is being held at the Cow Palace in San Francisco, and Lily Ivory is persuaded by her friends to close Aunt Cora's Closet for a few hours of shopping the stalls of vintage jewelry with the hope of finding new items for her shop. Attracted to Griselda's booth, Lily buys a box of jumbled, mismatched, junk jewelry. The vibes she gets from Griselda are as jumbled as that box of jewelry. She suspects Griselda is a witch but cloaking it, making Lily wonder why. Taking her box to examine over a cup of coffee, chaos breaks out with tables falling, beads rolling, and people screaming, Lily sees Oscar her lovable pot bellied pig, streaking in and out of booths with the security guards hot on his trail.
Oscar tells her there's a terrible feeling of demonic presence and he wants her to leave, then fire alarms begin shrieking. Instead of leaving she makes her way against the escaping crowd and finds Griselda, murdered, pressed to death. A method used during the dark ages to extract confessions from witches. Is a witch hunt starting up in San Francisco or is it a random murder. Lily is confident Griselda was killed for something related to witchcraft. Something was up and Lily is hard set on the trail to find out what.
This seems to be one of the toughest cases Lily has confronted so far, and one that is very upsetting to her. Mysterious things happen that she can find no reason for and she has to call in friends from her past to give her assistance. Oscar is as always a little charmer that steals the heart of everyone that meets him. In the end Oscar turns out to be a savior for Lily, doing his duty as her familiar. There are many surprises confronting Lily, people who are not what they seem and others who are tried and true friends. An excellent story and one that is not only exciting, it is fast paced and a bit hard to solve with so many conflicting clues.
