Klappentext

When police chief Will Hardaker calls Whittier NH mayor Victoria Donnelly in the middle of the night and orders her to a crime scene; she's shocked to see the town road agent sitting inside the road grader with a bullet hole in his forehead. Found at the scene, an incriminating invoice and a nine mm slug, point directly to her. Not long ago Vic and Will surprised themselves by starting a passionate middle-aged romance and this murder just might end it. The phony invoice was created on the town's computer network, and though Vic's signature is on it, she proves her innocence to Will. They just might salvage their relationship. Then the nightmare escalates. Whispered telephone threats, an innocent friend's arrest, her dog's murder, and the torching of Vic's beloved 1962 Jag XK-E leave her frightened, angry, and undeterred.

They get a break when Vic's two aldermen, the artistic and extremely odd Boynton brothers, come forward as reluctant witnesses. They live and work near the entrance to the town garage. Someone parked on the woods road across from their shop the night of the murder. It wasn't Vic. Too many probable suspects and several quirky characters abound in this cozy mystery set in the Lakes Region of New Hampshire. Who killed the road agent? Was it Pete Forbes, the road agent's surly second in command, or maybe the sleazy code enforcement officer who can't keep his hands off Vic. The town administrator's desperately hiding a secret that could blow his career to pieces. Will's sixty-something older sister, Dora, executive secretary to Vic and usually stiffly professional, is suddenly acting like a gum-snapping teenager. To top everything off, Boston mob boss Tony Lambrini has been seen around t
