Managing to combine family and all the chaos and warmth that entails with a professional Judge and tie it all up in a satisfying conclusion is Margaret Maron's gift. This is her nineth book in this series (she has another). The heroine (Knott) is shocked to learn that the carnival worker she discovers kicked to death behind a stall is really her nephew. The two worlds meet up and the familiarity of the carnival culture and slang give this an story a unique voice. There's even a glossary of terms at the end of the book. The plot keeps you guessing and the personal side just adds to but never overwhelms the mystery. Great read.

Very well-written mystery. Dramatic without being overblown, and compelling while staying realistic. Would definitely read another in the series.

This is a devilish plot that ends with a thoroughly unexpected but satisfactory twist.
