Publisher's Summary

Deputy Coroner Mattie Winston is starting to feel like she's in way over her head...

As the single mom of an energetic toddler and an investigator working for the medical examiner's office in small-town Sorenson, Wisconsin, Mattie is used to her life being a juggling act. But now that she's moved in with Detective Steve Hurley and his teenaged daughter Emily, and has started planning their wedding, her home life is looking more like a three-ring circus. And with her boss and friend, Izzy, suddenly having a health crisis, she could not be more grateful for the newest staff member in the ME's office, Hal Dawson.

All too quickly her gratitude turns to shock when a floating body found trapped against a dam turns out to be Hal, but the cause of death isn't drowning - his throat's been slashed. Hal was supposed to be fishing on his day off with his girlfriend. And when their empty boat is found in a nearby lake, the whereabouts of the woman becomes an even more urgent question.

To find out what really happened to her coworker, Mattie may need to rock the boat. But a killer is just as determined to keep the truth from ever surfacing, even if that means making Mattie the next one to go under.

    "What an entertaining series!"

    I love good mysteries, some are so convoluted I lose track and then regain it later in the story.
    Annalise Ryan writes a very interesting story, with some twists and turns but I always feel solidly anchored within the mystery. Mattie is just as caring, loving, gentle and goofy as always but she's gaining the confidence she's has always wanted. Hurley is mellowing out a bit , add Emily and Matthew and the four of them are becoming the loving family all three have wanted. Emily is growing into a lovely young woman and Matthew is more than a handful but very sweet. Their entire extended family and friends are present. Unfortunately, some will come to an untimely end.
    It sort of ends on a cliffhanger but not so much to upset anyone. It's worth the credit and ultimately when it comes to an end, you will smile.
    As always the Ryan/Marie combination is a fruitful one.
    Oh, Hurley's new "pet name" for Mattie will make you laugh and chuckle every time he says it.

    "Really? Child care and potty training?"
    Would you try another book from Annelise Ryan and/or Jorjeana Marie?

    No...I think I have heard enough about the trials of day to day toilet training. I could not believe the amount of time the author spent on this subject rather than the mystery. Ick.


    What three words best describe Jorjeana Marie’s performance?

    Fair, although a little monotone.

    "Great Read"

    This is the best of the series. Mattie Winston is a well rounded and realistic character. The mystery is fresh and well developed. I can't wait for the next book in this series.

    "The Story Line Isn't As Good As Previous Stories"

    We have listened to all the of the series but this story isn't as well written as the others. Still worth listening to just a bit disappointing. Maybe the author has too many projects under her various pen names.

    "Amazing"

    This series has always been one of my top favourites and I'm always recommending it to anyone who love a good murder mystery. I've read all the book multiple times, and it still leave me laughing on every page.

    This has been my first time listening to an Annelise Ryan book on Audible, and I'm very impressed.

    I can't wait to get my hardcover and read it again!
