Preview: Hear it

Think carefully... Thats the advice Jean Wainwright always gets from her beloved Aunt Constance, Jeans guardian and headmistress at the boarding school where she lives. Its advice that proves valuable when Jean finds herself spending the summer far from home, sorting out family papers for the reclusive Mr. Thiel, a trustee of Aunt Constances school and the widower of her childhood friend Irene Callender. At Mr. Thiels isolated country estate, Jean is surrounded by bewildering questions from the past. Why is there such hatred between Mr. Thiel and his late wifes brother? Was her death an accident? And what happened to their child, who disappeared after Irene Thiels death? Do the answers lie in the Callender papers? And will searching for the answers put Jeans own life in jeopardy?
