The map referred to was apparently a separate publication. A copy of the Explanation, with map, is listed by Sabin (no. 18175) as being in the New York State Library, but this is an error, since the copy in question had no map. A map in the Library of Congress, which may be the one intended to accompany the Explanation, has the following title: A map of the federal territory from the western boundary of Pennsylvania to the Scioto River: laid down from the latest informations and divided into townships and fractional parts of townships agreeably to the ordinance of the Hon. Congress passed in May, 1785.

A new novel in the popular DS Gil Mayo series. When the murdered body of a woman is found floating in flooded uplands near an isolated farm and nearby cottage, it poses problems of identification, prompting the press to dub her the 'Mystery Woman.' Who is she? As time goes by, Detective Superintendent Gil Mayo and his assistant Inspector Abigail Moon, begin to fear that question is destined to remain unanswered, until the bursar of a public school, currently involved in controversy over a proposed new entrance to the school, is murdered at his desk. Though the murders are seemingly unrelated, events begin to show that this is not so. As a temporarily unemployed ex-student, Cleo Atkins will do anything rather than take the safe secretarial position her mother has lined up for her, even to taking a job with Maid to Order, a firm of cleaning contractors, something her mother feels she is singularly unfitted for. The firm is much in demand following the trail of destruction left by the floods, and working with the team Cleo comes across evidence from a totally unexpected source, and ultimately finds herself involved in the investigation. With her cooperation, Mayo and Moon are able to follow a chain of events that eventually lead to the identity of the Mystery Woman being revealed, and to the unexpected solution of both murders.

In River City, Missouri, the "wedding of the year" is causing florist Bretta Solomon one headache after another. Bretta and a few other River City business owners have been hired by a newcomer to this small Midwestern town to throw an unforgettable party for Evelyn Montgomery's daughter, and Evelyn wants every lavish detail to be perfectly done. Bretta; Oliver, the landscaper; Sonya, the wedding coordinator; Claire, the beautician; Dana, the caterer; and Kasey, the photographer; are all being driven nuts by Evelyn's last-minute, over-the-top demands. Furthermore, during the week leading up to the wedding, Bretta's estranged father shows up for a "surprise" visit and moves himself into her house. And as if these two events alone weren't enough, the enigmatic Bailey Monroe, a DEA agent Bretta met during a previous adventure, also has arrived in town claiming a desire to get to know her better. It's shaping up to be quite a week. But just when she thinks things can't get any worse, two wedding workers die suspiciously on the same day, and Bretta can't help but think there's something more sinister in the air than love and marriage. In Reap a Wicked Harvest, it's up to Janis Harrison's delightfully determined gardening sleuth to figure out just exactly what's going on before the big day.

When Flower Shop owner Bretta Solomon leaves her hometown of River City, Missouri, and heads for a florist convention in Branson, she's surprised to find a letter from Vincent and Mabel McDuffy slipped under her hotel room door, begging for help. The McDuffys seem to know of Bretta's success as an amateur sleuth around River City, and that, coupled with their admiration for Bretta's late husband, a police officer, has inspired them to ask Bretta to find out what happened to their daughter, who died of a heart attack a few months ago. The trouble is, Bretta can't find the McDuffys-after leaving her several messages at the hotel, they seem to have vanished. And although she's curious to track them down and find out exactly what they want her to do, she's got her hands full already running the design contest at the annual florist convention, coping with back-stabbing competitors and suspicious colleagues. Once again, Janis Harrison's likable and enterprising sleuth, Bretta Solomon, unearths a murderer in the unlikeliest of places. Combining a traditional puzzle with a delightful gardening backdrop, this charming mystery distinguishes a series that continues to bloom.
