Ritter handles the atmosphere of small town life to a tee. The fictional town, Perry Hollow, is a character in itself: brooding stretch of highways and farmland. For the mystery genre and aficionado, it is a perfect setting.

Overall a good debut, I can see Todd Ritter becoming an author that has a formula and gets his execution down to perfection. There was one scene, (cemetery) a total edge of your seat, not breathing moment. That was up there with the best authors in my opinion, definite potential.
There were some areas of the story that felt like the norm, I had read it before and other times the tension was built up nicely. A small town dealing with a serial killer, this was done well but when you re ...more

This is a good story with enough to keep you guessing. I look forward to reading more in the series.
It took me a while to get 'hooked', but once the story develops, I found it hard to stop reading!

A small town has just experienced it's first murder. And it wasn't a straight forward one either. The killer has attempted to crudely embalm the body and also notified the local obituary writer of the death before it actually happened.
Kat is the local police chief in charge of this investigation and is disturbed by a second similar murder....
The story was fast paced and the characters interesting although not sure of the relevance of some of their complex back stories.

Todd Ritter was born in rural Pennsylvania to a bank teller mother and a father who dabbled in taxidermy. He grew up among "Bambi"-esque forests and wide-open fields straight out of the cropduster scene from "North by Northwest." Appropriately, his two biggest influences are Walt Disney and Alfred Hitchcock. He lives in suburban New Jersey.
