display_description"A socialite bride, a $1 million inheritance, an older husband of questionable social rank, Yankees misbehaving on Southern soil . . . [A] web of intrigue" (Our State).

A news media frenzy hurled the quiet resort community of Pinehurst, North Carolina, into the national spotlight in 1935 when hotel magnate Ellsworth Statler's adopted daughter was discovered dead early one February morning weeks after her wedding day. A politically charged coroner's inquest failed to determine a definitive cause of death, and the following civil action continued to expose sordid details of the couple's lives. More than half a century later, the story was all but forgotten when local resident Diane McLellan spied an old photograph at a yard sale and became obsessed with solving the mystery. Her enthusiastic sleuthing captured the attention of Southern Pines resident and journalist Steve Bouser, who takes readers back to those blustery winter days so long ago in the search to reveal what really happened to Elva Statler Davidson.

Includes photos

"As compelling as any crime mystery an American writer has ever written: suspenseful, titillating, true and set in Moore County." —The Pilot

"Bouser is both compassionate and balanced in his reports of the Davidson affair." —Authors 'Round the South

"Bouser uses a story 'ripped from the headlines' as they say to reveal what's known and unknown about a young Pinehurst socialite's bizarre death . . . [He] takes the reader through the wild inquest, a later trial over Elva's will, and buckets of speculation." —Salisbury Post
