Heather Haven, Murder is a Family Business

“When you were born, you cried, and the world rejoiced. Live your life so that when you die, the world cries, and you rejoice.”
Heather Haven, Death Runs in the Family

I sprinted to where the driveway meets the street. Richard’s new green Prius was pulling in, his salute to the environment.”
Heather Haven, Death Runs in the Family
