 A WATCH THAT TELLS MORE THAN THE TIME …

A mysterious gold watch left on a fencepost propels Kathryn Frasier into a quest to find the truth behind her parents’ recent deaths. But her orderly life is turned upside-down when she discovers a dark family secret and runs into a cast of fascinating characters, including an actress with a talent for disguises, an ambitious politician, and a handsome businessman who shows a sudden romantic interest in Kathryn.

“I started it and … I couldn’t stop. Nice job!” — Will Shortz, New York Times crossword puzzle editor.

The Watch on the Fencepost was a 2019 Illumination Award winner for General Fiction and a 2019 Eric Hoffer Award winner for Mystery.
