Book Review: Death's Half-Acre

TitleDeath's Half Acre
AuthorMargaret Maron
Tagsmystery, series, north carolina, judge

The latest of many in Maron's Deborah Knott series, abut the lawyer/judge daughter of a bootlegger. In this volume a local business woman is murdered, and Deborah's husband Dwight, a policeman, is investigating. As usual, Deborah gets involved.

Good, but not excellent, entry in the series - which still makes it better than most books. It does provide a thoughtful picture of land development and its consequences in once rural communities.
