Publisher's Summary

When Tom Newquist, a tough, honest, and respected detective in the Nola Lake sheriff's office died suddenly, the townsfolk were not surprised: Newquist worked too hard, smoked too much, and exercised too little. That plus an appetite for junk food made him a poster boy for an American Heart Association campaign.Newquist's widow didn't doubt the coroner's report. But Selma couldn't accept not knowing what had so bothered Tom in the last six weeks of his life, and the only way she'd get closure was if she found out what it was that had made him prowl restlessly at night, that had him brooding constantly.
Kinsey should have dumped the case. It was vague and hopeless, like looking for a needle in a haystack. Instead, she set up shop in Nota Lake, where she found that looking for a needle in a haystack can draw blood. Very likely, her own.

Quite good until the very end

yes, we all know she has to write 26 books and some have been disappointing, but this one was really one of her much better efforts -- you don't know what's going on until almost the end (even tho you might suspect), but she blows it with a really limp ending in the last paragraph or 2. Oh well...................... still worth a listen.
