Here is a gothic murder mystery which commences when a Civil War monument is struck by lightning, revealing a skeleton. A series of murders and attempted murders are precipitated when a young and inexperienced prosecutor seeks to solve the mystery (relying, in the end, on his recollection of some Sherlock Holmes stories!). The setting is a mid-Western town on the Mississippi River in 1958. The writing by David Hammer is crisp and to the point. Trade paperback.
