River Mourn by Bill Hopkins

Judge Rosswell Carew's fiancée is still missing. Because her last call to him came from a payphone in Sainte Genevieve, Carew arranges to hold court there so he can pursue his search for her. When he witnesses someone who resembles Tina tossed from a riverboat ferry, he's plunged into a nightmare world he never knew existed. Rosswell is astounded when he discovers that what he saw and the fate of Tina are intertwined. Unable to convince the local authorities that something deadly is going on, Rosswell teams up with his faithful research assistant Ollie Groton to discover the truth. The excitement never lets up until the last page.

A looong, meandering story but very entertaining.

A little slow in the beginning to lay out the story but once it gets going it is reviting and hard to put down. I will be reading the sequel.

Mystery in historic Ste. Genevieve. Early on a Sunday morning, Judge Rosswell Carew watches the Mississippi River ferry from the balcony of a B&B. A woman resembling Tina, his missing pregnant fiancé, is tossed overboard. He calls the Sheriff but his story is not believed. Unable to give up his search, the judge enlists the aid of Ollie, a brilliant, eccentric, almost trustworthy assistant. Together they seek out some of the colorful town characters: an old lady who speaks in riddles, dopers, midwives. They explore caves, find hidden passages, and escape a wildfire in their efforts to find and rescue Tina. This story, the second in a trilogy, reads well on its own. Lots of twists and turns until the reader wants a score card to separate the good guys from the criminals.

I foundd this book to be as well done as the first in the series. On to number three.
