The Enigma of Iris Murphy: Stories

A prison’s visitation room; a veterinarian who understands the thoughts of animals; an Omaha police sergeant; a banking executive who consoles her dying friend; a librarian who sleeps with giraffes; an elegant grifter whose well-behaved grandsons disguise her sleight of hand thefts—all linked by the life of Iris Murphy.
