This review is from: The Buzzard Table (A Deborah Knott Mystery) (Hardcover)
Judge Deborah Knott has comfortably adapted to her marriage to Dwight and mothering his son Cal. Deborah was raised around 11 brothers so there is not a lot a man can fool her about. Yet there is a man living obscurely under the pretense of photographing birds who has a story to tell of why he is there that does not quite make sense. He is connected to a well distanced cousin of Deborah's so he should not raise eye brows but when a young woman is killed too close to where he is staying red flags start flying every where.
Dwight is working this murder dealing with too many suspects all with a motive to want the woman removed from their life. Yet, as Dwight pulls the pieces together a teenager trying to stay out of trouble finds himself near death for making a poor decision. On top of that you add another murder that has the FBI cloak and dagger drama going on and Dwight is knee deep in what is happening in his town. The connection again is the strange man with quick lies and some very sketchy details about what he is really doing in Colleton County.
Margaret Maron provides readers with everything they look for in a book and more. There is the captivating mystery of course, but every story is woven around the personal aspect that makes Deborah and Dwight so enjoyable. This book in particular when have every fan of Ms Maron's grabbing a tissue by the end.
