All Things Slip Away, sequel to Scraps of Paper and prequel to Ghosts Beneath Us and Witches Among Us. (The Spookie Town Mysteries Series).
Can a crime and a cunning criminal return to torment you after a decade...yes they can. Ten years ago Frank Lester, a Chicago homicide detective, thought he had rid himself forever of the Mud People Killer who'd kidnapped and murdered six people. Frank had shot him as he'd fled through a snowy night; had killed him, he believed, though a body was never found.
But the killer wasn't dead. He'd only been waiting to take his revenge on Frank and those he cares about now…ten years later. Frank retired early and is living back in his hometown of Spookie when the killer resurfaces to take up where he left off. Kidnapping more innocents and tormenting Frank and the people he cares about.
Unless Frank and his artist girlfriend, Abigail Sutton, can find and stop him before he kills more people and perhaps both of them. *** Spookie Town Mysteries, Vol.2; Approz. 76,500 words. Now there are six of these; seventh is coming in December 2020.
Absolutely wonderful ending and just sweet and kind characters.55
Well worth the read and money spent! Loved this book and the whole series!55
Good writing. Throughly enjoyed the book55
I really loved the story. Sometimes I wished I could read faster so I could find out how the suspense ends. I love Myrtle and would like to know a Myrtle. The only thing that took away from the story for me was misspellings. Why were compound words like ‘to-night, him-self, yester-day’ hyphenated where others like ‘herself’ not? Some sentences just stopped mid-line then completed on next line? As a teacher, it caused me to pause each time.55
