Storm Track


Author: Margaret Maron

"A witty and affectionate view of the new South--and especially, the new South's new woman," writes the San Diego Union-Tribune of Margaret Maron's award-winning Deborah Knott mystery series. From its first book, Bootlegger's Daughter, which swept every major mystery writing award, this series has been extraordinary--winning a greater audience and brilliantly evolving in content and style. Now, in the seventh book in the series, sexual tension, illicit love, and brutal murder entangle and explode in Deborah Knott's life . . .

Hurricanes rarely make it inland as far as Colleton County, North Carolina. When they do, people remember them as events that mark an entire generation. Domestic storms, on the other hand, hit with regularity. But when the scantily clad body of a promiscuous wife is found in a motel, the killing resounds like a thunderclap through the community.

With her handsome cousin a suspect in the murder, Judge Deborah Knott gets personally involved in the case. She soon uncovers a web of secret and illicit affairs that stretches from the African-American church community to Deborah's own family. Then the murderer strikes again, even as a real-life killer storm rages up the Carolina coast. Hurricane Fran, bearing powers that can alter the landscape forever, will deliver a revelation to Deborah Knott about those closest to her--and a justice greater than man's own.

Mesmerizing, psychologically complex, and cleverly plotted with surprises and twists, STORM TRACK is great, powerful fiction . . . and Margaret Maron is at her best.
