In her first novel, Judy Penz Sheluk has written a well-crafted mystery in the classic tradition. A small town with a dark past, its inhabitants full of secrets, a ruthless developer, and an intrepid reporter with secrets of her own come together to create a can't-put-down-read. I look forward to the further adventures of Emily Garland and Lount's Landing.

Compelling characters with hidden connections and a good, old-fashioned amateur sleuth getting in over her head without the distraction of cats, spirits, or recipes makes Judy Penz Sheluk's Glass Dolphin series one to read. Upon turning the last page of The Hanged Man's Noose, I wanted to hop in the car and drive straight away to Lount's Landing, sit down in the tavern that lent its name to the title, and start quizzing the characters on what was going to happen in the sequel.

Emily Garland is sent to a small Canadian town about to be invaded by a mega-store to work on a magazine. She has reason to dislike the developer--and apparently, so do many others in town. As the body count rises, Emily needs to figure out who killed who, and why. Replete with twists and turns, the story keeps the reader guessing right up to the end. Highly recommended!
