Retirees in quiet Serenity, S.C., find themselves investigation a vicious crime in Oust's charming debut. When retiree Kate McCall finds a human arm in the underbrush at the local golf course, handsome sheriff Sumter Wiggins quickly takes over the case, but Kate remains determined to help out. An aficionado of forensic television shows, Kate never hesitates to follow the sheriff's car or do her own sleuthing with the help of her quirky Bunco Babes, who wonder whether the desecrated body could belong to one of three local women who recently went missing. Feisty and intelligent, Kate is an admirable protagonist with genuinely clever detective skills. Far superior to the typical cozy, this uniquely capricious mystery will engage readers from the very first page to the surprising conclusion.
