The last in the series I'm going to miss these books they are really good reads with great characters.
The last book in the Baxter series, "A Fine Line", concerns a killer from the mob who is looking for specific people who were placed in the witness protection program. Also, some false accusations were made against one of the pillars of the community, which causes family difficulties. Even though I didn't care for the plot of this book as much as some of the others, I will be sorry to say good bye to the people of Baxter.

the end of the baxter series. I enjoyed it. had the good ole mystery line. but all of this happening to oneperson in this small town gets to be a little much. but the message was a great one
