This is the 3rd book in the Silver Lake Cozy Mystery Series. A gambler and child-abuser joins the police force in Silver Lake. He is hunted by Asia Reynolds' superior ability to do research. Our sleuths tear their hair trying to figure out why he is so mean in such a fine, little town.
On top of all the commotion around Officer Thomas, Asia's niece comes to stay with her and has "country-itis" -- a profound dislike for farm animals and the rural setting of Silver Lake.
That is, until she falls in love with the diabolical Officer Thomas's son, Bert.
Who will win in this struggle to regain the peace? Meanwhile, Asia finds love...
