Overview

Dr. Lindy Adair, formerly a university professor and now the owner of 180 glorious acres of Washington woods that once belonged to the Sunstrike commune, is accustomed to strangers on her property. Old residents make their way back every now and then. Lindy usually leaves the wanderers in peace, but one unexpected visitor troubles her. A teenaged boy stumbles past her home early one morning and falls, thrashing, into a nearby pond. He's been at a moonshine party, Lindy learns. The illegal liquor has left him partially blind and one of his drinking buddies dead. As the owner of the land that houses the still, Lindy is pulled into the tragedy. The police inquiry is headed by a charismatic newcomer who seems determined to make her a suspect, and the dead boy's parents are pursuing a civil suit that puts nothing less than Lindy's beloved home at stake. When a second death follows - this one clearly not accidental - it becomes evident that there is even more trouble to come. As Lindy investigates, she uncovers a story of revenge and retribution set against a backdrop of America's breathtaking wilderness.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Cahners\\Publishers_Weekly
Former university professor Lindy Adair lives peacefully on 180 acres in Washington State formerly occupied by the Sunstrike commune. One morning, a teenager stumbles past her house, blinded by moonshine he and some friends made with a still on Lindy's property. Lindy is horrified to learn that one of the boys has died-and that she may be legally responsible. She may lose her cherished land unless she can prove she had no knowledge of the still and can find whoever taught the youths to use it. The case gains urgency when the grandfather of one of the boys is murdered. Police detective Dan Richison, new in town, teams up with Lindy, partly to speed up the investigation and partly to keep an eye on her; she's a prime suspect, not least because her concern for those she questions seems to overshadow her worry over her own predicament. Unraveling intricate motives and acts with an effective, low-key investigative style, the complex Lindy is oddly appealing: analytical and independent, yet compassionate and accepting. Brown's mystery debut closes with a coda suggesting further, welcome collaborations of Lindy Adair and Dan Richison.
