Brown pulls off an amazing feat: she carries the plot forward through animal characters who are completely believable. And she cleverly maintains her humans' ignorance of what the animals are staying and thinking--only the reader knows for sure.
Just as the town starts to buzz over the Civil War reenactment a poplular local man disappears. No one's seen Tommy Van Allen's single engine plane. Excet for Mrs. Murphy who spotted it during a foggy evening's mousing.
Crozet is having a Civil War enactment, a popular man disappears. His plane is not seen by anyone but Mrs. Murphy, out mousing. Then the enactment takes place and a participant ends up with real bullets in his back. This is another enjoyable book in this series. I've enjoyed every single one of them.
