2015 Maxfield Parrish Exhibit & Sale!


ALMA GILBERT announces the release on November 1, 2015

Of a new Maggie Winters mystery called  The Case of the Purloined Identity

Case of the Purloined Identity

Our plucky heroine, Maggie Winters, an elderly Vermont museum curator, is at it once again protecting her museum, friends and staff against a most audacious imposter claiming to be the scion of a famous and wealthy family.

The fast paced chain of events leads to murder and kidnapping as the imposter seeks to prevent his phony identity from being exposed.

This tale is torn from actual national headlines shortly after the author met a man claiming to be a member of a very wealthy and famous family who threatened her and the small prestigious museum she founded. The author provided some of her e-mail exchanges to the local authorities and the FBI when the mysterious stranger disappeared after a real-life kidnapping. This latest fiction book is loosely based on those experiences in New Hampshire.

Paperback edition. 258 pages.
