When McBirney’s car is later found abandoned, Police Chief Pete Adams fears that someone took their hatred a little too far. But it is not McBirney’s body that is found in the vehicle. It is that of Ted Bassi, son of the police secretary. McBirney goes from potential victim to potential murderer.
Zoe Chambers, emergency technician, finds herself in the middle of the murder investigation. Since Vance Township is a small town, everyone knows everybody and everyone knows a lot about everybody, or they think they know a lot about everybody. Their lives are intertwined like the threads of soap opera. Zoe has romantic feelings for the police chief. The police chief’s ex-wife is married to Jerry McBirney. Ted Bassi’s wife and two children are good friends of Zoe’s. Zoe had also had several run-ins with McBirney.
All of these interconnections of the characters – the “circle of influence” -- make perfect sense. Nothing seems forced. The characters are well drawn and act just as the reader expects, yet there are still enough surprises to keep you off balance.
The investigation goes in several directions as another murder is committed. There are conflicts everywhere. The County police want to take over the investigation. The victims two teen-aged children are struggling to face his death. Zoe’s probing leads her to butt heads with Ted’s widow. The police secretary ends up slugging McBirney, in a judge's chambers!
This is a terrific mystery novel. Zoe and Pete seem to be conducting separate investigations, but their searches lead them to the same conclusion. The climax is riveting and well played out, with a few surprises packed into the tense ending.
I’m anxious to see the next novel in the series.
