Attempting to identify a prank caller who has been preying on her granddaughter and members of her knitting circle, nonagenarian Victoria Trumbull is drawn to the disappearance case of a recently fired electrical employee who attempted to blackmail his boss.

McMillan Palgrave

Victoria Trumbull, the ninety-two-year-old poet/sleuth, is back in another entertaining mystery, set in beautiful Martha's Vineyard.

A mathematical knitters group is working on a coral reef quilt for a competition to draw attention to global warming. When a telephone stalker begins preying on their members, they become terrified and distracted and turn to Victoria Trumbull for help. Victoria and Police Chief Casey O'Neill attempt to track down the man the women suspect of stalking, but he seems to have disappeared. To complicate matters, someone gets killed. Victoria must solve the murder and also deal with issues on the home front when her daughter, Amelia, arrives from California, determined to help her mother and concerned that Victoria may be too great a burden on Elizabeth, Amelia's daughter.

Cynthia Riggs has once again created a suspenseful mystery with a cast of eccentric and memorable Island characters, bringing the rich setting of Martha's Vineyard to life.

Action-packed and fast-moving. Several suspects, but the actual murderer was well-hidden.
