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.Read more ›
