New York Times bestselling author Margaret Maron returns with a thrilling new Deborah Knott mystery . . .


Judge Deborah Knott and her husband, Sheriff's Deputy Dwight Bryant, are back home in Colleton County amid family and old friends. But the winter winds have blown in several new faces as well. Lt. Sigrid Harald and her mother, Anne, a well-known photographer, are down from New York to visit Mrs. Lattimore, Anne's dying mother. When the group gathers for dinner at Mrs. Lattimore's Victorian home, they meet the enigmatic Martin Crawford, an ornithologist researching a book on Southern vultures. He's also Mrs. Lattimore's long-lost nephew. With her health in decline, Mrs. Lattimore wants to make amends with her family-a desire Deborah can understand, as she, too, works to strengthen her relationship with her young stepson, Cal.

Anne is charmed by her mysterious cousin, but she cannot shake the feeling that there is something familiar about Martin . . . something he doesn't want her or anyone else to discover. When a string of suspicious murders sets Colleton County on edge, Deborah, Dwight, and Sigrid once again work together to catch a killer, uncovering long-buried family secrets along the way.

Judge Deborah Knott and her husband, Sheriff’s Deputy Dwight Bryant join up with Lt. Sigrid Harald of the NYPD to track down a killer in their small town in North Carolina. They uncover long hidden secrets from the past that cast their investigation that lead them to the culprit. I highly recommend this latest installment in the entertaining and down home Deborah Knott mystery series.

Did not find this a plot to really hold the reader, will try another by the writer

Sigrid Harald visits Deborah's neck of the woods, but isn't overly involved. The story is well-paced, nothing wrong with it, but I like others from this series better. The buzzard lore is fascinating (I'm still not convinced).
