RITUALS OF THE SEASON

Author(s): 
It's finally happening: Judge Deborah Knott and Sheriff Dwight Bryant are getting married. Could there be a worse time for a murder? Of course, that's what happens.

Assistant District Attorney Tracy Johnson and her baby are killed, shot while Tracy is driving. Was it a random shooting, or was someone gunning for Tracy? On top of planning their wedding and completing their unfinished house, Deborah and Dwight must figure out who could have held a grudge against Tracy.

Maron's 11th Deborah Knott mystery is a remarkable book. She keeps the reader equally interested in the mystery and the ongoing wedding plans. As always, the plotting is tight and the dialogue realistic and perfectly fitting for the characters. This is a very enjoyable book with a superb ending. (Sep., 303 pp., $23.95)
