View author's profile page

Overview


A spate of burglaries has rocked the town of Lark Harbor, Oregon, and the latest crime has personally touched Eleanor Shore, who, along with her husband Lawrence, owns friendly local gaming store The Game's Afoot. Things get even more complicated when Eleanor finds out the burglaries seem to involve her friend, Dusty Howell. Except Dusty isn't a normal friend. For Eleanor has a rare gift, a level of insight from a mystical heritage that enables her to grant the deepest wish of those who most need her help. Pop culture would call her a fairy godmother. Her ancestors would call her a dobran. Her name doesn't matter. What matters is that Dusty needs help now, and Eleanor may be in a unique position to give it and to end the burglaries wounding her town. That is, until someone ends up murdered. Then the whole game changes, the board is upended, and the players are not who they seem to be. Eleanor's world is turned upside down, and she must right it before she becomes the killer's next victim.
