Loved it

I really liked this book. I like the way the author keeps the story line going and not constantly having flash backs . It kept me guessing until the last minutes.

Another winner from Maron

I always get so wrapped up in the events surrounding Margaret Maron‘s characters that I tend to lose track of the murder mystery. This one does an excellent job of wrapping the two together, as family members disappear and Dwight and Deborah have to unravel the question of what happened to them.

Another good one ... but ....

Still enjoying this good series. Love the characters and all the storylines surrounding the large Knott family. Excellent mystery in this story. My only criticism comes regarding the snide political remarks starting to creep in. I appreciate that the author has her views regarding past and present politicians, as we all do. But, if I wanted real life politics thrown in and her views, I'd read a book on politics instead of a mystery fiction book.
