Article 58 begins The Linden Tree & the Legionnaire series, the epic chronicle of the irrepressible Family Pērkons, debut novel of Diana Sowell Mathur, MBA cum homeschooling mother of three.

A quiet reader of history and keeper of family traditions, no one ever suspected Mrs. Mathur of plotting murder. Her tale, however, weaves elements of geopolitical intrigue with the cozy threads of malice domestique,  proving that nefarious crimes and heroic salvos reside together as disturbingly nearby as one’s own family album.

 The Mathurs live in California and visit Latvia every season, relentlessly restoring a pre-Communist era summer house.
