A Kirkus Reviews Best Book of 2011!

Something nasty is afoot in Emily Kincaid's northern Michigan town—besides Emily's increasingly cranky friend Deputy Dolly. When the body of a brutally slain woman turns up in an abandoned farmhouse, Emily and Dolly uncover a disturbing pattern. Bodies of dead dogs are being thrown into migrant Mexican workers' yards—a gruesome warning to keep someone's despicable secret.

Clues to unravel this macabre affair seem woven into the manuscript Emily is editing for Cecil Hawke, an eccentric English author. Each page paints an eerily familiar picture of intimidation, madness, and murder. But reading further into the Englishman's twisted fiction could spell Emily's untimely death.

"Buzzelli will have you packing your bags for a move to northern Michigan."—KIRKUS REVIEWS (starred review)

"Emily is a detective for our skint times: She can't afford health care, but she can make flour out of cat tails and work three jobs at once."—CHRISTIAN SCIENCE MONITOR
