Monona Quinn thought moving away from the big city would be a refreshing change of pace. But when the owner of a popular local diner comes up murdered, she begins the hair-raising task of finding the culprit.
Discovered by his young altar server, Father O's body lay on the floor of the sacristy - his throat slit. And so Monona Quinn, editor of the weekly Mitchell Doings, finds herself writing a profile of a dead man for the second time in three months. And just like last time, Mo become obsessed with uncovering his killer, regardless of her husband's misgivings and her own safety.
Everywhere Monona Quinn goes, people turn up dead - and Mo ends up confronting their killers! First there was Charlie, owner of the town diner and Mo's first friend after moving to little Mitchell, Wisconsin (Murder over Easy). Then there was the parish priest (Murder at Midnight).And now, even a trip to the family farm yields corpses.
