Book Five in the Hollis Morgan Mystery Series:  The Bell Tolls

Hollis Morgan has survived imprisonment, received a pardon and persevered to finally become a probate attorney. Tough as she is, her newest case will further test her mettle. She discovers her client, Matthias Bell, is a deceased blackmailer whose last wish was to return the damaging documents letting his victims off the hook. It falls to Hollis to give them the good news. But it becomes apparent that Bell was murdered, and the victims of “Bell’s tolls” are now suspects.

The specter of a killer keeps her focused. Hollis has always had to rely on her wits, but now she finds that others who don’t have her well-being in mind are relying on them as well. Book 5 in the Hollis Morgan Mystery series, which began with The Fallen Angels Book Club.

---Vic’s Media Room

“The two storylines are well fleshed out and Hollis is a character that you can’t help feel close to. The Return of the Fallen Angels Book Club is well crafted; the writing is top-notch.”
---Mystery Sequels.com

Sticks & Stones: "R. Franklin James writes great characters and takes her mystery further than most writers. She twists and turns her characters so much that they are impossible to figure out until the author reveals the story line, in her own time. I've read both Hollis Morgan books and am awaiting the next in the series."

Sticks & Stones: "Who knew a simple nursery rhyme could be so dangerous? Someone knows. Someone has all the answers Hollis seeks. You'll want to keep turning the pages to see if Hollis survives long enough to uncover the truth."
- Alexa de Monterice

Sticks & Stones: “Readers are sure to be captivated by this plot-twisting, exciting mystery. It is a real page turner and I certainly am going to keep reading this series.”
