Murder at the End of the Line
Kate must solve her childhood friend’s murder before a small town succeeds in sweeping the crime under a rug! More
Kate McGonagle arrives in the tiny desert town of Del Sueño, intending to meet up with Josie Hadding, her best friend since childhood. But Kate’s plan to spirit the two of them off to the beach for sun and fun goes horribly awry. Josie’s embroiled in conflict with the town council over the End of the Line, a shabby bar with a shadowy past and clientele who swill beer for breakfast.
Mystified by Josie’s loyalty to the Line and the stand-offish town dwellers, Kate is nevertheless persuaded to stay and help tend bar. But when she finds Josie’s bludgeoned body one dark night in the back office, the town’s citizens and local police force seem a little too eager to write off the killing as a random burglary gone bad.
Remembering how Josie once stuck to her guns to prove Kate’s innocence in a long-ago crime, Kate refuses to let the murder get swept aside. She’s not leaving Del Sueño until the truth comes out.
But small towns and long-buried secrets have a very nasty way of coming back to bite...
