Overview

A storm is bearing down on Foggy Point, Washington, promising strong winds, flooding and power outages. Harriet Truman and the Loose Threads quilt group are sewing flannel rag quilts and making plastic tarps from grocery bags for the denizens of a local homeless camp.

Then one of the homeless men is strangled, and a few days later a second man is also murdered. Were they victims of a serial killer, or of someone closer to home?

With the detectives of the Foggy Point Police department trapped on the wrong side of a rock slide that isolates the community, and dead bodies at the homeless camp, it’s up to Harriet and the Threads to figure out who is killing people and why—before they become the next victims.

She started knitting, writing and sewing at a young age and still does all three. A thirty year diversion into the high tech industry, along with marriage and children, prevented her from taking action on her desire to write novels inspired by her love of Agatha Christie until recently.

Arlene spends her days writing her novels, babysitting her grandchildren, quilting, knitting and promoting her books. She is active in the Harriet Vane Chapter of Sisters in Crime in Portland, Oregon.

With Foggy Point in the middle of a nasty winter storm and murder at the homeless camp and no way to get help, Harriet and the gals investigate. You want to keep reading because you are trying to figure out who did it. A very fast read. It keeps your interest. Enjoy!!!

The Loose Threads are just fun to read. An interesting mystery and I love the way Sachitano works with the homeless in this book.

It started out a little slow but it is a very good story line so far.
