There's more than one reason why the new West Tisbury police chief officially made 92-year-old Victoria Trumbull her deputy. For one thing, Victoria knows just about everything about everyone in Martha's Vineyard, not to mention their ancestors. She may be 92, but she is as sharp and as sharp-eyed as the proverbial tack. So when Victoria is the only one who spots something amiss among the gravestones of the West Tisbury cemetery, it's no surprise that the police chief listens.Something is indeed amiss. A request comes from presumed relatives in the Midwest to disinter a coffin for reburying elsewhere. Things go wrong from there. When, as a last measure, the coffin is found, dug up, and opened, it does not contain the expected body. Then the coffin itself disappears.
"With patience and charm, the down-to-earth Victoria succeeds in drawing out confidences. In the end, even she is surprised". (Publishers Weekly)
"Can a 92-year-old protagonist engage readers of all ages? Definitely....As satisfying as a steaming bowl of chowder on a cold New England evening." (Booklist)
