The small police force of White Rock, New Hampshire is still reeling from the death of Officer Tyler Richardson when they are called to the scene of the accidental drowning of an out-of-town camper. But Chief Sam Mason and Sergeant Jody Harris soon discover the drowning was no accident. Someone murdered Lynn Palmer and staged the scene to make it look that way. With a pool of suspects who aren't telling the truth and a corrupt mayor who wants the case solved yesterday, Sam and Jo follow a puzzling trail of clues with a surprise ending.

I would have stopped listening well before except that I did want to know who committed the crime. The story line was believable, if a bit formulaic. The characters were barely two dimensional and the stray dog was a much more developed character than most of the others. What was most disappointing was the narrators sloppiness. He mispronounced the name of the county in which the story was set and his attempts at a rural NH accent were embarrassing.
