Zoe Chambers is again caught up in a mystery that is not of her causing - but this time is seems to involve her father, uncles, mother, and stepfather. It will take all she has to keep her focus on her job as an EMT and as her town’s Deputy Coroner. And not be killed in the process.
The mystery starts in chapter one and continues through to the final page - at a pace that rarely stops. The reader will follow Zoe Chamber’s exploits across Monongahela County in southeastern Pennsylvania. New murders seem to follow poorly investigated cold cases - which threaten the lives of those still living. It will take the talents of amatuer slueth, Zoe, and her semi-romantic interest, Vance Township Police Chief Pete Adams, as well as the understaffed, underfunded county crime lab to put the pieces together.
The perfect cozy mystery for anybody looking for a late summer, early fall read. The rural setting of Monongahela County is the perfect mix of mild summer days, and wild heat filled storms. It will soon become a place that the reader will want to visit for a day or two while traveling through the area. I would just hope that you do not stumble on the scene of the next murder - which I will eagerly await to read.
