Title: Murder in Perspective. An Architectural Mystery. (Hard Cover - DJ) (Published by Walker and Company, New York. Published simultaneously in Canada by Thomas Allen & Son Canada, Limited, Markham, Ontario)

Author: Miles, Keith

Description: Frank Lloyd Wright is Merlin Richards's hero, and the handwritten note in the famous architect's own hand - "If you make it to America, come and see me" - is all it takes to persuade the young, Welsh architect to strike out on his own. It is an invitation, Richards decides, and a chance to learn from the master. Nowhere in Wright's note does it say anything about murder. Chasing his dream, Richards finally arrives at the building site of the Arizona Biltmore, where Wright is expected at any moment, and meets a beautiful young designer named Rosa Lustig. Like every other man in her circle, Merlin is charmed...and a handful of hours later, he is the prime suspect in Rosa's murder. Jealous suitors, envious workers, and the police are all convinced that Merlin is a killer. (Publisher’s description.) (First Edition)

Description: "Set in the year 1940, ‘June’ is a nostalgic portrait of a Midwestern farm wife who struggles - in a hostile environment - to achieve two goals: to produce an heir & to build her dream house. June Ventler's plaintive song reflects the meadow lark she loves to hear sing its heart out while staking out its territory, longing to be heard & recognized as a unique creative soul. Meanwhile, Roosevelt's New Deal policies, revolutionizing family & threatening to end the old conservative ways, complicate matters further. Titillated by an itinerant hired man & inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright's genius, June Ventler breaks with tradition & finds a new identity in a changing world." (Publisher’s description.)
