Publisher's summary

When Appalachian Trail thru-hiker Lydia Manzo becomes lost in the woods of Maine and then found dead, it sets off a chain of events that upsets the fragile peace of Redimere, Maine. While state investigators are sure Lydia killed herself, some in Redimere are sure someone killed her. As newspaper editor Bernadette “Bernie” O’Dea tries to sort out the truth, Police Chief Pete Novotny also disappears into the woods.

Maine’s northwestern High Peaks region can be a dark wilderness, but the mountains suddenly seem very crowded as Bernie searches for answers. It’s another too-hot summer of deceit and death in Redimere.

A solid story with really good narration

This is the first Maureen Milliken novel I've read, and I enjoyed it very much. Bernie O'Dea, the story's lead, is a strong, realistic, character. Her career as a reporter is more of a backdrop to this story than an integral part of it, but the life of a small-town reporter was very true-to-life, based on my own experience. The pace was good and the murder motive and method were surprising, The narrator's (Trudi Knoedler) ability to inject real emotion into her performance, and to alter her voice to differentiate the characters added a lot to my enjoyment, When "read" means "listen" as is the case with an audiobook, not having to stop, rewind, and try to figure out who is talking was much appreciated!
