Donald and Maria have moved to the country to get away from the hustle and bustle of the City. They love their new home and the friendly neighbors. Some of the neighbors are not so nice but they can stay away from them. Then they find the professor out by the Standing Rock, dead.
Canongate Books and Net Galley let me read this book for review (thank you).This book will be published September 7th.
As they try to make sense of this murder, it involves two families. Most of them don't get along so well.
Between jealousy, grudges over past indiscretion, and attempted murder, this small town is a hotpot of anxieties. There are ex-wives, unknown fathers, and very selfish people all involved. It's a mess. But somehow they get confessions for the crimes. Just listening, being nice, and encouragement was all the non-cops needed.
