The quest for love and home becomes deadly when Detectives Erik Jansson and Deb Metzger search for the killer of an adulterous real estate agent in When the House Burns (Coffeetown Press, 2023), a new fast-paced mystery from author Priscilla Paton. The murder investigation involves a volatile real estate market, unrest in a homeless encampment, jealousies among would-be lovers, and a case of arson. When the House Burns is not only a gripping “whodunit” but also a social commentary on the COVID-19 pandemic’s impact on housing. Paton, who earned a Ph.D. from Boston College, is author of the Twin Cities Mystery series. Previous titles are Where Privacy Dies, a finalist for a 2018 Foreword Indies Book Award, and Should Grace Fail, a finalist for a 2020 Foreword Indies Book Award.
