Mysterious Press, New York, 1998, ISBN:0892966572 1998 0892966572 / 9780892966578 
MacLEOD, Charlotte. The Balloon Man : A Sarah Kelling and Max Bittersohn Mystery. (New York) : The Mysterious Press, (1998). First Printing. Pp. (6),1-280,(2). blue paper-covered boards with gilt lettering to spine.

A novel by the New Brunswick-born mystery writer.

Charlotte Matilda MacLeod (b. November 12, 1922, Bath, Carleton County, New Brunswick, Canada - d. January 14, 2005, Lewiston, Maine) was a mystery fiction writer.

"Art detective Max Bittersohn knows when to lie low. He wisely keeps out of the way when his wife, Sarah Kelling, plans a huge wedding for his nephew at their Boston North Shore mansion. By the time the Kelling and Bittersohn clans arrive on the big day, everything, including the weather, seems perfect. But even Sarah can't foresee a hot air balloon landing on the wedding tent - or the squashed corpse beneath it.

And no one anticipates one of the biggest surprises in the Kelling family history: the mysterious reappearance among the wedding gifts of the long-lost Kelling rubies.

No believer in coincidence, Max soon rises to the challenge of tying the events together. Meanwhile Sarah's psychic cousin Theonia is seeing visions in her tea leaves, which may prove uncannily accurate ... or a red herring among the orange Pekoe. Then Max vanishes into thin air.
