Seventeen-year-old Mary Ann Markham and her best friend, Jennifer Martin, decide to audition with a local amateur theatrical group. They plan to drag along Art Parker, Mary Ann's adoptive father, until they discover that the tryouts have been postponed because of a dead body cluttering the stage. Never ones to be thwarted in their pursuits by a few extraneous corpses, they soon find themselves involved in trying to identify a clever murderer who seems hell-bent on wiping out actors and stage crew alike. They survive a severe thunderstorm in an abandoned gristmill only to find themselves a target for the killer as well as for a big black dog named Satan.

About the Author
Because he had lived in southern Arizona for a total of nearly ten years, first while serving in the U.S. Army in the mid-1960s and later while working for a Government contractor and then a private corporation, John decided to set his Pima series of novels in an area he knew well, the mountains and deserts of Arizona. Later short stories and novels are set in other locales. Now John makes his home in eastern Pennsylvania, the area where he grew up.
