Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Starred Review. Near the start of Parshall's excellent third Rachel Goddard mystery (after 2007's Disturbing the Dead), the Mason County, Va., veterinarian witnesses an argument between newspaper publisher Cam Taylor, who's desperate for money to save his paper, and popular cartoonist Ben Hern (aka Cuban-American artist Benicio Hernandez), who won't give him any, at Ben's mansion. On the drive home, Rachel spots Cam's abandoned car in the road, pulls over, hears gunshots, and finds Cam dead in the woods. Later, Cam's house burns down with a woman's bullet-ridden body inside, initially identified as Cam's wife. Another shooting victim; the arrival of the clingy ex-girlfriend of Rachel's love interest, deputy sheriff Tom Bridger; and the disappearance of Ben's mother raise the stakes. Rachel and her vet assistant, Holly Turner, must take care not to become a frantic killer's next victims in a suspenseful tale distinguished by its sharp prose. (Feb.)

From Booklist

Buried secrets are at the heart of this third mystery featuring veterinarian Rachel Goddard (following The Heat of the Moon, 2006, and Disturbing the Dead, 2007). Celebrity cartoonist and children’s author Ben Hern, a newcomer to rural Mason County in southwestern Virginia, has a secret that makes him vulnerable to blackmail by local do-gooder Cam Taylor. That makes Ben a prime suspect when Rachel finds Cam’s body with a bullet in it. On the same morning, Cam’s house burns down, and his wife Meredith’s body is found in the ashes. Then Rachel and her housemate, Holly, are nearly asphyxiated, and the Taylors’ nearest neighbor is murdered. Chief deputy sheriff Tom Bridger, whose relationship with Rachel is threatened by the return of his scheming first love, Lindsay Taylor, must look deep into the past to find the key to the killings and to unearth the most deeply buried secret of all. Parshall again makes the most of the rural-community milieu in this worthy addition to her series. --Michele Leber
