Murder at Marble House (A Gilded Newport Mystery)
Murder at Marble House (A Gilded Newport
With the dawn of the twentieth century on the horizon, the fortunes of the venerable Vanderbilt family still shine brightly in the glittering high society of Newport, Rhode Island. But when a potential scandal strikes, the Vanderbilts turn to cousin and society page reporter Emma Cross to solve a murder and a disappearance. . . Responding to a frantic call on her newfangled telephone from her eighteen-year-old cousin, Consuelo Vanderbilt, Emma Cross arrives at the Marble House mansion and learns the cause of her distress--Consuelo's mother, Alva, is forcing her into marriage with the Duke of Marlborough. Her mother has even called in a fortune teller to assure Consuelo of a happy future. But the future is short-lived for the fortune teller, who is found dead by her crystal ball, strangled with a silk scarf. Standing above her is one of the Vanderbilts' maids, who is promptly taken into police custody. After the frenzy has died down, Consuelo is nowhere to be found. At Alva's request, Emma must employ her sleuthing skills to determine if the vanishing Vanderbilt has eloped with the beau of her choice--or if her disappearance may be directly connected to the murder. . .

John Banister of Newport: The Life and Accounts of a Colonial Merchant
John Banister of Newport: The Life and Accounts
Merchant John Banister (1707-1767) of Newport, Rhode Island, wore many hats: exporter, importer, wholesaler, retailer, trader on his own account, moneylender, extender of credit and insurer, owner and outfitter of sailing vessels. His recently discovered accounting records reveal his role in transforming colonial trade in mid-18th century America. Combining business acumen and work ethic with an understanding of the law and new technologies, Banister applied his skills to the export-import trade and privateering. Through his maritime activities and real estate development, he was a rainmaker for artisans, workers and producers, contributing to income opportunities for businesswomen, freemen, and slaves. Drawing on Banister's meticulously kept daybooks, ledgers, letters and receipts, this book provides an analysis of his contribution to the economic history of colonial America, highlighting the complexity of the commerce of the era.
