Natalie has been assigned a cold case involving a number of transients who disappeared years ago in upstate New York. At the same time she is assigned a new case involving the murder of the wife of a fellow detective, Daisy. She was a friend of Natalie’s, and the murderer seems to have been someone Daisy knew. Natalie sifts through possible suspects looking for answers. Could it be Daisy’s detective husband or one of her high school students?
I found the town itself, and it’s Wicca culture an interesting draw to the tale. The story got a bit convoluted at times for me, and that slowed it down a bit, but for the most part I enjoyed the interweaving of characters and the ultimate conclusion.
This was my first Alice Blanchard mystery, and I will definitely try another.
