Yup, by Winslow Falls, NH standards it's pretty darn good. That is, until an arsonist lets loose in the village and Gwen finds a body sizzled like a sausage in the smoldering remains of the local museum.
With no experience solving arsons Gwen is eager to turn over the case to State Fire Marshal's Investigator Hugh Larsen. But things are never that easy; Hugh needs her take on the townspeople and their relationships just as much as she needs him.
Fortunately for the townspeople, a recently arrived immigrant family provides ideal suspects. When an artifact from the burnt museum shows up in the possession of one of the foreigners, the town readily blames the "people from away". A second death, also connected to the museum, convinces Gwen that the town she's always taken at face value is harboring a home-grown murderer.
Jessie Crockett lives with her dark and mysterious husband and exuberant children in a village so small most other New Hampshire residents have never heard of it. Hearing from readers makes the winters seem shorter so please drop by for a visit at www.jessiecrockett.com.
