Shadow on Cant-dog Hill is a tense mystery set in the corner of Vermont's Northeast Kingdom where Canaan village is forty five miles from the nearest stoplight and sometimes equally removed from the law. It is mid-January, 1982. Single parents Adele Clayton and Reilly Bostwick are in love. Nothing prevents them from forming a new family except a murder and a kidnapping. Two days ago Reilly found a woman shot faceless on a snowy hillside. Yesterday the state medical examiner identified the victim as his ex-wife and police discovered matching blood in his cellar. Today Reilly sits in jail believing that nothing worse could happen to him and his eight-year-old daughter Amy. He's wrong. The true killers are looking for her. Fortunately their intricate plan didn't anticipate the talents of young widow Adele Clayton. These are the dynamics of an intricate and exciting novel with an uplifting outcome: a mystery that stands in contrast to most police procedurals and PI stories. This detective's motivation isn't justice or money; it's love.

Book Description Dog Ear Publishing. Paperback. Condition: New. 208 pages. Notes from the author: Whats novel about this Kindle bookI hope youll find Shadow on Cant-dog Hill fun to read, but difficult to categorize. I see it as a tense and compelling picture puzzle framed in rich descriptive language. Its a love story, a tale of friendship, and a novel of place, all held together by a mystery that wont disappoint. Reilly Bostwick, Adele Clayton, and their two eight year old daughters are excited about forming a new family. Then Reilly Bostwick discovers his ex-wifes frozen body. He is jailed after blood evidence is found in his home. While police are positive that they have the killer, Adele and Reillys friends believe otherwise. Their investigation will take you for a romp through some of New Englands most remote and colorful countryside sometimes ducking bullets. I invite you along for the trip. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Paperback. Seller Inventory # 9781608441082
