Lucille Rinaldi was hoping for a merry Christmas with husband Frank when she came to Chapel Hill in 1963. When her body was found in their North Street apartment, her husband fell under suspicion. He was charged and tried. Time of Death explores an unsolved murder in Chapel Hill and examines the impact the crime had on the town, as well as the people intimately involved. It looks at the cultural and social factors that contributed to this search for justice.

Nora Gaskin grew up in Chapel Hill in the 1950s and '60s, went to Carolina, and has lived mostly in Durham and Chapel Hill. After a career as a financial planner and stock broker, she returned to her first love, story-telling. She published a novel, Until Proven, inspired by the events she wrote about in Time of Death. Nora's next novel, The Worst Thing, will appear in early 2018. Her company Lystra Books has published more than 20 books.
