The J.O.S.H.U.A. Foundation pays Callie Webber to investigate charities—a safe-enough task until dead bodies litter the landscape. Her newest assignment sends her to North Carolina's Smokey Mountains to check out a charity that serves the migrant workers employed A DIME A DOZEN (4) in those parts. The investigation reveals vandalism, theft of documents, a missing person and a stabbing victim. If she's not careful, the case may land her in an unmarked grave. This third outing in Mindy Starns Clark's Million Dollar Mystery series draws the reader deeper into a decades-old deception. Clark spices the plot with a touch of romance, as she ties up every loose end without losing a thread. (Jul., 300 pp., $10.99)
