Dead RapunzelBook - 2015
It's the dead of winter in Loon Lake when a wealthy widow is run down and killed by a logging truck on an icy street. The truck driver insists he saw a man shove the woman into the path of his truck. A lone witness who may have seen the man who shoved the victim is soon found dead - drowned in icy waters where he was ice fishing. Within hours, Police Chief Lewellyn Ferris finds herself dealing with malicious family members related to the dead woman, a cache of grisly paintings, and strange disturbances on the land surrounding the widow's contemporary mansion- all of which point to various people who may have wanted her dead. Lew recruits her close friend and fellow fly-fisherman, retired dentist "Doc" Osborne, for his forsenic and interrogation skills. Meanwhile, Ray Pradt, ice-fishing guide and expert tracker, helps with the initial investigation even as he threatens to engage in an inappropriate relationship with a key witness. Lew's life and career are further complicated when a young woman calls, convinced that Lew is her birth mother.
