 About the Book 

When it comes to the weaving of tangled webs, youll find none finer nor more deceptive than those on the loom of Margaret Marons Storm Track, the seventh entry in her critically acclaimed Judge Deborah Knott mystery series. Colleton County, North Carolina, is home to Judge Knott, her moonshining daddy (the series opener, 1992s Bootleggers Daughter, swept the Edgar Allen Poe, Anthony, Agatha, and Macavity awards in unprecedented fashion), and more brothers and cousins than hairs on a big dogs back. Likable young lawyer Jason Bullock lives there too, as does his lovely and--unbeknownst to him--extraordinarily unfaithful wife--an awkward situation all around, which turns even more so when she turns up dead in a local motel, wearing little more than whimsy and a wink:Who would kill her, Reid? Hell, I dont know. Usually youd say the husband, but Bullock was on the ball field, right? Millard King, too.She slept with Millard King? When?He shrugged. Before me, after me, during me--I dont keep tabs.Clues abound, suspects emerge, and chief among them is the judges cousin, Reid- a cad, certainly, but a killer? Judge Knott thinks not and sets out to prove it, as the body count rises and Hurricane Fran commences to lower the boom.A native North Carolinian, Maron opens a window onto the New South by concerning herself more with her multilayered characters and their intertwined lives than with overstyled prose or plot contrivances. An altogether satisfying mystery, Storm Track will surely propel readers straight through this series and into the prolific Marons other series featuring Lt. Sigrid Harald, NYPD. --Michael Hudson
