Format: Paperback
Bengta Boydstrom is a former copywriter who has also spent eighteen years in Manhattan in television promotion. Originally from the Southern Tier of New York, she grew up with a love of nature and an inherent interest in flora and fauna, which is strongly reflected in her writing. Ms. Boydstrom has returned to her original destination in more ways than one, and we as readers benefit from her knowledge and love of the land, as well as her ability to spin a darn good yarn.
Robin Beynac is an irreverent forty-two year old journalist, who has been successful in her own way as the writer for a smallish magazine in Manhattan. When her boss agrees to underwrite a trip back to Longford, New York for her twenty-fifth class reunion, Robin's past begins to float back in little bits and pieces of unresolved coincidences:
"Terry was gone and Amos--distraught at her sudden departure--had quit talking to me. And, despite Banter's high opinion of the work I did for his magazine, my heroes, Loretta Sleape and Preston Astley were not the sort of people likely to be impressed by the puffy fluff that I cranked out. Sure my articles about falcons nesting on the 59th Street Bridge and about wild, edible greens in Central Park, both also inspired by Amos's father, might have won minor acclaim, but the rest of my writing--celebrity interviews, travel adventures, book reviews--hardly constituted Pulitzer Prize material."
That's where Bengta Boydstrom starts the reader. In an excellently plotted, well crafted, highly polished whodunit and where is the body, Boydstrom takes the reader for the ride of their life. When Robin isn't mired to the waist in mud, she is half-eluding and half-pursuing those in her home town who don't want her unearthing its secrets.

The premise: a New York journalist goes home for a High School re-union and stumbles into mystery, meyham, and murder. Taut writing, good tone, and a cast of colorful back-woods characters keep the story-line moving. I found Robin Beynac, as the amateur sleuth in hot water, to be credible and down-to-earth. Sometimes I give up on mystery stories, but this one kept me turning pages till the end.

I loved "Death by a Dam Site" -- it will probably make my Top 10 list of favorites for the year. I call it "old-fashioned" in the best sense of that word. It tells a whopping good story, with characters you care about and remember long after you close the book. Integral to the plot are social themes -- preservation of wetlands and ownership of Native American remains.
Robin Beynac is a successful writer living in New York, who goes back to high school for her class's 25-year reunion. Old classmates and teachers have aged more like vinegar than wine, and Robin has her hands full trying to stop the building of a dam, while helping a former neighbor who's in the clink suspected of murder. Along the way, she learns some surprising truths, and has a poignant reunion with two childhood friends.
Highly recommended.
