RT Rating

Versatile Cameron switches genres and turns her exceptional talent toward an amateur-sleuth mystery set in Britain’s Cotswolds. She develops a rich sense of place, where small village isolation has bred shadowy secrets. Cameron shows a real flair for atmospheric mysteries.

After the ugly demise of her marriage, Alex Duggins leaves London and returns to her childhood hometown to rebuild her life. She purchases the Black Dog Inn & Pub where her mother works. One morning, as she walks in the woods near the inn, Alex discovers the body of a murdered man. The man is a stranger, but it appears he was killed with a dart similar to those used in her pub. The police are uncommunicative, but Alex finds herself drawn into the case when strange incidents start plaguing her. (STELLACAMERON.COM, Sep., 268 pp., $8.99)
