The last crime wave to hit Maggody, Arkansas, happened eight years back when a farmer's barn burned down and caught two teens in flaming delicto. That's why Arly yanks, back in the Ozarks after her marriage went sour in the Big Apple, figured taking the local sheriff's job would give her some needed R&R. What she got was M&M--murder and malice. First Raz Buchanon's favorite hunting dog was snatched, then an EPA official (who okayed dumping sewage in the town's favorite fishing hole) disappeared ... and then a pretty barmaid turned up dead at the Flamingo Motel from real unnatural causes. Now Arly's in danger of landing up the creek without a paddle--where the quiet of the Ozarks may be shattered by the sounds of death.
