The Hemlock Falls mysteries grow on me and this is the best one yet. A rich man has bought the town newspaper and turned it into a tabloid. No one is safe. Where does he find out all this stuff? Is he crazy enough to have killled his mother and his sister and tried to pin the latter on superchef, Meg. How does the new mini-mall, scheduled to be opened in a matter of days and invested in by virtually the entire town, fit into the picture? Not to mention the goofiest Kipling Society in the history of the planet.
