(From the publisher):
Ben Abbott is back in Stonedust
, a complex, richly plotted, and enthralling mystery that tests this witty, literate realtor and fledgling detective as never before.
The Fisks’ weekend party, a "sleep-over" for select couples, remains the talk of the town long after Reg Hopkins’ body turns up in an isolated covered bridge. It appears Reg may have paid the party a fleeting visit — before dying in a way everyone swears was impossible. Ben, who used to play backyard baseball with Reg and all the party guests, must take up the matter with a hometown cast of friends, foes, and family — including his ninety-year-old Aunt Connie, the rising politician and his sometime lover Vicky McLachlan, the comely and ambitious State Police Detective Marian Boyce, and a pair of deadly housebreakers. Soon everybody’s getting much more in the way of kicks than they bargained for.
