Publisher Description

Will spooky legend twist whodunit into whatdunit?

As sighing winds and fog-drifting nights mask the moon over North Bend County, Kentucky, the sleuthing team of Sheila and Clara test an eerie local legend against the reality of murder. … Aided, of course, by their faithful dogs, Gracie the collie and LuLu the lovable mutt.


This small-town crime novel with humor is the seventh book in USA Today bestselling author Patricia McLinn’s cozy mystery series, Secret Sleuth, which begins with a murder on a transatlantic cruise in Death on the Diversion. In Death on Torrid Avenue and later books, accidental investigator Sheila Mackey returns to dry land in the Midwest, where mysteries abound in her new Kentucky home.
