One of the best in the Deborah Knott series!
A shooting, but Dwight has to leave to go see his son and a mystery fastly develops there. It switches back and forth as both are being solved.A fast moving story.
Love the Deborah Knott series. This is the first after her marriage and concerns the disappearance of her stepson. Not one of her best but still a good read.
Judge Deborah Knott is just married to Sheriff Deputy Dwight Bryant and about as happy as it is possible to be. But they are still learning how to be married as they approach their one month anniversary.
Then a disturbing call from Dwight's son, Cal, sends Dwight to Virginia to see why Cal's mother isn't with him on that night. It turns out that Dwight's ex is missing and has been for a couple of days, and soon after Dwight's arrival Cal becomes another missing person.
Deborah joins Dwight in Virginia as they struggle to find Cal and soon they are dealing with his mother's murder as well.
This is another excellent book from Maron with characters that are so real I think of them as old friends.
Another Great Deborah Knott Mystery.
This is a great read in the Deborah Knott Mystery series. I loved every page and couldn't put it down. If you like Margaret Maron, you'll want to read this book.
I don't agree that it was so "fast moving" particularly. There seemed not to be a lot of excitement about her missing step-son. The first murder back in NC seemed to add nothing to the book, but extra pages.
This entire series of Judge Deborah Knott by Margaret Maron is an absolutely joy to read. The characters are well thought out and explained and continued throughout the series. The locations and situations are wonderful too - even with the 'journalistic license' taken. One feels you know the places, folks, taste the food, experience the wonderful place that is North Carolina. I simply just loved it and could not wait to read on and on.
First book I read from this author. Enjoyed it!
