Overview

While an end-of-the-world revivalist group shakes up Leetsville, Emily Kincaid is deep in the northern Michigan woods researching her latest story for the local paper. But her walk gets cut short when she comes upon an eerily motionless woman propped against a tree . . .

Emily soon learns that the victim, an eccentric psychic and leader of a shamanic healing group, harbored painful memories of the area-and had mysterious ties to certain revivalist members. What could have lured her back to the place she feared so greatly? Why did someone want her dead? As the last day draws near, Emily races to solve this mystical puzzle and expose the killer. An old ghost town, a forgotten grave, and closely guarded family secrets may hold all the answers.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
At the start of Buzzelli's well-crafted third Emily Kincaid cozy (after 2009's Dead Floating Lovers), the intrepid reporter discovers a dead woman under a pine tree near an abandoned logging town 15 days before the world's supposed to end on October 27, at least according to the End Timer cult that's causing a stir in Leetsville, Mich. Strangled by a rope similar to those worn by cult members, Marjory Otis was a shaman who'd come to Leetsville to tend to the crowd if the world didn't end. After Emily's policewoman friend, Deputy Dolly Wakowski, joins the End Timers, Emily once again turns amateur sleuth, encouraged by her newspaper editor, Bill Corcoran, among others, to help catch a killer and solve a cold case involving Marjory's past. Buzzelli's mix of mystery and humor doesn't include supernatural shenanigans like Charlaine Harris's Southern vampire series, but it does provide some sharp prose and spirited characterizations.

Library Journal
On the verge of acquiring a literary agent for her mysteries and a more permanent job as a columnist for the local newspaper, Emily Kincaid stumbles on the strangled body of a psychic who had dirt on a local cult leader. Calling on her best friend, Deputy Dolly, for assistance, Emily swings into investigative action. VERDICT Buzzelli hits her stride in this third entry (after Dead Dancing Women and Dead Floating Lovers) in a series about two women who have formed a tight friendship despite their different personalities and who discover that they are stronger than they believe. For readers who like Sue Henry.
