Everywhere Monona Quinn goes, people turn up dead - and Mo ends up confronting their killers! First there was Charlie, owner of the town diner and Mo's first friend after moving to little Mitchell, Wisconsin (Murder over Easy). Then there was the parish priest (Murder at Midnight).And now, even a trip to the family farm yields corpses. Mo's twin sister, Madison, is already under plenty of pressure taking care of her mother and keeping the family farm going, with her husband serving in Iraq. So when her son (also one of twins) is arrested for drug possession, Mo drops everything - including her 80-hour-a-week job as editor of the weekly Mitchell Doings - and drives down to the farm, outside Summersend, Iowa, to help. The simple possession charge turns to suspicion of murder when not one but two locals, who are running a meth lab out of an abandoned barn outside town, are killed.
