This is a murder mystery set in a small town in the North Carolina Blue Ridge. There, Oliver Swindler, a New York book editor, has returned to his home town to become the local newspaper editor. As soon as he arrives, he discovers murder, fraud, deceit, and corruption. How can he respond? The author, Peter Loewer, is a New Yorker who has written more than thirty non-fiction books, including The Wild Gardener. After moving to Asheville, he hosted, for many years, a monthly call-in radio show on public radio to answer gardening questions. He is also a print-maker and artist.
