Hundreds of cheap green tennis shoes wash up on the beach of this quaint island town. What makes the shoes seven more interesting? Each shoe still holds the severed foot of its owner. When the ‘amputations’ occurred, the owners were still alive. All of them.
Why would so many people be victims of the same amputation?
Agent Pendergast is called from his vacation to investigate.
Lillian and Madison (girls from the opposite sides of the streets) become unlikely roommates in an isolated upper-class prep-school. Lillian is coerced by Madison’s father to ‘befriend’ her roommate and ‘take a fall’ so that a boarding school scandal can be resolved. Their codependent friendship continues through letters.
Several years later, Lillian gets a letter from Madison seeking assistance once again “from the only person I can truly trust”. Lillian is hired to babysitter Madison’s stepchildren. The stepchildren happen to have an unusual gift- they spontaneously combust.
A touching story, yet hilariously funny!
Once you start the book, you won’t want to put it down!
It’s his daughter’s birthday, and Amos Decker is back in Burlington, Ohio, at the cemetery visiting his wife and daughter’s graves.
While there, Decker is accosted by Meryl Hawkins, his first homicide arrest as a rookie detective. Meryl Hawkins, a convicted murderer, was given an early release because he was dying of cancer. Meryl has come back to Burlington to seek to clear his name. He now claims he was innocent of the murders of four people: two businessmen, a drug-dealing young man, and a young girl.
As Decker begins to investigate the possibility of Hawkins’s innocence, Hawkins is murdered.
Soon, the small town of Burlington, Ohio, has a morgue piled full of dead bodies- murders on top of murders- all seemingly connected to the trial and conviction of Meryl Hawkins.
Could Amos Decker have sent an innocent man to prison? The more the murders pile up… the more likely that seems.
