Beatrice Chandler is a crime story writer who lives in Tulsa. She is called home to Devil’s Creek in the rolling hills of mid Missouri for her Aunt’s funeral. In her short stay there, two murders occur of elderly residents, who are close friends of hers. She joins the Police Chief and childhood friend, Arnold Larkin, in solving the crime against Adelaide Connelly, and before the week is over, the murder of her neighbor, Fred Arbuckle. Adelaide is a former teacher and mentor who Bea and Arnold admired since childhood. Beatrice’s journey takes her to Colorado and back to Devil’s Creek in pursuit of the killer. She feels sure who the culprit is until she starts following two other possibilities: Benny Adler, the Choctaw and Tom Larkin, cousin to Arnold. Beatrice steps into hidden secrets in Devil’s Creek as she discovers all is not as it seems in her hometown.
