“Petty’s style is sensitive and engaging, her story is engrossing, spanning three generations of richly-drawn characters. The author displays a master’s eye for telling details and human emotions and it is in the richness of Petty’s details that her depth as a writer is revealed. ‘Where’s the Body?’ is a great curl-up-and-read mystery!”
—Robert D. Kidera, Hillerman award-winning author of the Gabe McKenna Mystery series
A frantic late-night phone call from the teenage son of Thea’s Browne’s best friend, Annie Biggs, sets Thea on a dangerous desperate path that will threaten not only her lifelong friendship with Annie but Thea’s newfound relationship with Detective Jerry Anderson, and the very life of another close friend.
Joe Biggs called Thea when he feared his mother has disappeared, but, as it turns out, Annie is in jail, held for questioning in the homicide/arson death of Rachel McCue, who was the longtime mistress of Alderman Dan Biggs, Annie’s faithless husband. Not only was Annie at the scene of the murder with plenty of bloody evidence in her car, but she can’t account for her presence at Rachel’s house and it also seems there was a screaming “cat fight” between the two women the day before that was witnessed by a dozen or so onlookers.
Thea doesn’t believe Annie is a murderer, but the mountain of evidence against her friend has shaken her to the rafters. But she persists in an attempt to find out the truth of what happened to Rachel. To that end, she and Joe and Rachel’s next-door-neighbor, who is a former nurse and also calls herself a psychic, set out for the North Woods, trailed by a mystery car, in a search for the one person who may know the truth about Rachel: Heather Biggs, Annie and Dan’s daughter, who also happened to be Rachel’s best friend. They suspect she is holed up in a cabin in the North Woods, but when they find her and confront her, the results turn bloody and terrifying.
