Overview

When a lonely widow finds the severed head of an unknown young woman on her front porch in rural Swatara Creek, Pennsylvania, Police Chief Aaron Brubaker is baffled. Anxious to conceal his ineptitude from municipal officials, Brubaker (whose experience has been largely limited to policing weekend drunks and speeders) strikes a deal for former chief Daniel "Sticks" Hetrick to come in as consultant. Hetrick, bored in an enforced early retirement, has a broader background, including a stint as a State Police criminal investigator and is eager to prove his ability to one particular supervisor. In tracing the ID of the victim, Hetrick discovers a link to a major theft of rare ornithological books and a trail that leads from Philadelphia to his hometown where he is forced to confront danger and the darker side of his community and its residents. Read all the thrilling Daniel 'Sticks" Hetrick Murder-Mysteries from author J.R. Lindermuth! CRUEL CUTS, SOMETHING IN COMMON, CORRUPTION'S CHILD, BEING SOMEONE ELSE, and PRACTICE TO DECEIVE.

¿Like lovers, criminals and their victims always have something in common,¿ (Sticks Hetrick) When a disembodied head is discovered on a widow¿s porch retired Police Chief Daniel ¿Sticks¿ Hetrick offers his services to Swarata Creek¿s less than effective police department. Sticks knows it will take more than the current chief can do to find out who the beheaded woman was, how she was killed, why she was killed, and who killed her. The small Pennsylvania community seems barely aware of the murder-after all she wasn¿t local. But someone in Swatara Creek knew her one of them killed her one of them has a secret. John Lindermuth weaves his rich characters into a tapestry of mystery and surprises. He¿s sure who the killer is, but can he prove it? An excellent read. Review by Wanda C. Keesey
