The Mystery of the Sycamore

by Carolyn Wells

"A mysterious death in the shadow of a sycamore tree sets the stage for a classic whodunit." In this mystery novel, Carolyn Wells tells the story of the murder of Sam Appleby, a former governor of Massachusetts. Appleby is found dead in the shadow of a sycamore tree on the estate of his old political rival, Dan Wheeler. The police are baffled by the crime, and they call in amateur sleuth Fleming Stone to investigate. Stone soon discovers that there are many suspects in the case, including Wheeler himself, his daughter Maida, and his son-in-law, John. Stone must use all of his skills to solve the mystery and bring the killer to justice.
