“…a tightly woven mystery full of twists captured me. I found myself reading at every opportunity.” ~Suspense Sisters
“… a great cozy with many sterling characters representing small towns at their best. This has “rural” stamped all over it, and throwing in a murder so that all the normal characters and their shades of gray come to light, is a whole lot of fun.” ~Suspense Magazine
“This intriguing new mystery had me reading late into the night.” – Lorena McCourtney, author of the Ivy Malone Mysteries and the Cate Kincaid Files.
After a few years as a police officer in Chicago, Michael Keane has no trouble relaxing into the far less stressful job of deputy sheriff in his small hometown. After all, nothing ever happens in Hidden Springs, Kentucky. Nothing, that is, until a dead body is discovered on the courthouse steps. Everyone in town is a little uneasy. Still, no one is terribly worried–after all the man was a stranger–until one of their own is murdered right on Main Street.
As Michael works to solve the case it seems that every nosy resident in town has a theory. When the sheriff insists Michael check out one of these harebrained theories, his surprising discovery sends him on a bewildering search for a mysterious killer that has him questioning everything he has ever believed about life in Hidden Springs.
