Summary

Summary

Moving from Boston to remote Bearkill, Maine, isn't homicide cop Lizzie Snow's idea of a step up. But breaking away from tragedy and personal betrayal is at least a step in the right direction. Her dead sister's fate still torments her, as does her long-missing niece's disappearance. The town is full of people who see everything, say little, and know more than they'll share with an outsider. The only exceptions are the handsome state cop who once badly broke Lizzie's heart and desperately wants another chance - sheriff Cody Chevrier. A rash of freak accidents and suicides has left a string of dead men - all former local cops. Now the same cruel eyes that watched them die are on Lizzie...


Author Notes

Sarah Graves lives with her husband in Eastport, Maine, in the 1823 Federal-style house that helped inspire her books.

(Publisher Provided) Sarah Graves has been a writer (and a reader!) all her life. She sent her first story to McCall's magazine when she was seven or so. It was about a squirrel lost in the woods. The editors sent a form rejection letter, possibly because it was not very realistic for a squirrel to be lost in the woods. But this began her literary career of getting creatures (especially human creatures) into peril, and letting them figure out how to get themselves out again. She is best known for her Home repair is Homicide Series. Her titles include: Knockdown, Crawlspace, A Face in the Window, and A Bat in the Belfry.

Library Journal Review

Hardened cop Lizzie Snow takes a position with the sheriff's office in rural Bearkill, ME, a town full of wacky denizens and their intrigue. Narrator Kirsten Potter superbly portrays Lizzie as she adjusts from the big city to a small town; is caught between her old flame, Dylan, and another zealous suitor; and is thrust into the middle of a hunt for an unbalanced but clever killer. Potter's range of character voices is truly artful, as she easily transitions from New England to Canadian and French accents and vocabulary, hitting each one on the mark. Lizzie's own family issues entwine with the secrets of other Bearkill residents as she tries to clear the names of former cops who are being marked by a killer, leaving their deaths to appear as suicides. Lizzy, with uninvited help from Dylan, scrambles to find the killer before more disaster strikes the locals. Verdict A highly enjoyable listen for mystery lovers.
