Fiddlesticks killed her with his razor. Slit her throat and then forgave her.

Deep in the Appalachian woods stands the old Fiddlesticks cabin, the scene of a bloody double murder from decades past. Now the haunted cabin lures young thrill seekers who hope to hear the killer's ghostly fiddle music. When a group of college students comes to call, Lisa Wilson—the daughter of a former North Carolina governor—is tragically murdered, and her flesh is mutilated with disturbing symbols.

Pisgah County sheriff Jerry Cochran is in hot water when the ball-busting politician shows up, threatening to tear the county apart in search of his daughter's killer. But Nick Stratton—the handsome raptor center specialist and Lisa's boss—is in even hotter water when evidence points to him as the prime suspect. As Nick turns to attorney Mary Crow for help, it's up to the Pisgah County native to discover the truth. Did Nick do it? Or is there a deranged mountain killer on the loose?

Praise for the Mary Crow series:
“A top-notch thriller.”—People

“A grim but well-written adventure that skillfully interweaves Cherokee lore and human nature at its best and worst.”—Booklist
