Elderly Jonathan Lydell III is proud of his family history. For him, family, status, and history are the only realities-that and his antebellum house. Lydell is restoring the house to its pre-Civil War configuration, complete with a "stranger room" for unknown travelers. Separate from the rest of the house, the intent was to protect the family from unsavory guests. But what protects the travelers? Nearly 150 years ago, an inexplicable murder took place inside the Lydell's locked stranger room. Now another identical murder has been committed in the newly restored room. Why would history repeat itself? Does the Lydell family history hold the key to the mystery? Dr. Frederick Ramsay, a retired Episcopal priest, lives and writes in Surprise, Arizona. Stranger Room is his fourth novel to feature Sheriff Ike Schwartz.
