A dead man in a Maine diner serves up trouble for one young woman in this Agatha Awardâ€“nominated cozy mystery by the author of Musseled Out.
An autumn chill has settled over Busmanâ€™s Harbor, Maine, but Julia Snowden is warming up the town by offering lobster stew at the local diner. When her landlord discovers a dead body in the walk-in refrigerator, Julia must figure out who ordered up a side of murder.
Nothingâ€™s colder than a corpseâ€”especially one stashed inside a sub-zero fridge. The victim spent his last night on earth dining at the restaurant bar, so naturally Julia finds herself at the center of the ensuing investigation. Lost in the November fog, however, is whoâ€™d want to kill the unidentified strangerâ€”and why. It might have something to do with a suspicious group of retirees and a decades-old tragedy to which theyâ€™re all connected. One thingâ€™s for sure: Juliaâ€™s going to make solving this mystery her early bird specialâ€¦
