Descrizione articolo


Jenny Cain is up to her ears in plans for the Port Frederick Autumn Festival when a young widow comes to her with a heart breaking story. Melissa Barney's husband was recently hit by a car at the intersection of a nature trail and a highway. Barney wants to close the trail, and Jenny is drawn into a long-running controversy that threatens disaster for all she holds dear.

From Publishers Weekly:

As in her previous nine adventures (most recently, Confession), foundation director Jenny Cain combines can-do toughness and a tender heart. She needs both when trouble stalks a fall festival she's staging in her hometown of Port Frederick, Mass. An insurance company stalls on providing coverage; environmental activists accuse Jenny of trying to close their beloved nature trail, where three "accidental" deaths have occurred; and Christian fundamentalists picket the festival's Halloween theme. One protester dies when apparent arson destroys a local landmark. Villains abound, including a nasty drunk who assaults Jenny, a wealthy civic leader and a local reporter/environmental zealot. Jenny needs help from her police lieutenant husband, Geof, a troubled teenager and a delivery woman who reads rune stones. Readers have only their trust in Pickard and a prologue (in which an automobile accident occurs) as assurances that the disparate plot lines will converge?which they do, revealing surprising connections. Jenny's telling observations on love and marriage, family and friendships and small-town politics add texture to this well-wrought puzzle.
