Nancy Means Wright's first mystery is a humdinger. Wright examines family relationships and the resentments between native Vermonters and "flatlanders" (new arrivals from other states) as well as a series of murders and barn burnings. Ruth Willmark, whose husband walked out on her, is left with a dairy farm to run and two teenaged children to cope with. But when her elderly neighbor is robbed and beaten, she vows to find out who did it. Wright paints an honest and often humorous picture of a Vermont village struggling to stay alive despite warring townsfolk and rampant crime. Well-drawn characters and good local color add to the books enjoyment. ~ Reviewed by Louise Jones
