This is the second in the Deborah Knott series. I enjoyed it as much as I did the first one. Deborah gets sworn in as Judge. She goes through a very nervous first week. On the next weekend she has agreeded to help on a house for battered womern. The house is being build by all women. Things don't go right as her neice, Annie Sue, is found at the house with clothes torn and off and maybe raped. The attacker is found dead at the same house. Deborah has picked up the hammer that was used to kill him, therefore her fingerprints are on the murder weapon. Who did kill him? Annie Sue, Deborah, some of Deborah's brothers, Annie Sue's father? As the story progresses, Herman, Annie Sue's father is taken to hospital with arsenic poisoning. Arsenic is also found in the dead boys blood. How is this possible? The ending is very good. I could just feel and see the people in the story. Margaret Maron has done a good job with what I call a light mystery. If you want horror and gore try Patricia Cornwell or John Sanford. This one is humorous, shows close family ties and all around very good.

I love the Deborah Knott novels br Margaret Maron, she never disappoints, I know and like Judge Knott and her large extended family, and it is always fun to find out what everybody is up to and how the murder will tie in.Was this review helpful?
