What an interesting little book! Quiet Dell, WV is a small town where a series of murders took place in the '30s. I started listening to this book and became engaged in the Eicher family and their dynamic, all of a sudden, the story took a dark and dramatic turn, and that's when I found myself re-reading the back cover summary! A serial killer?! A true story?! How intriguing...

Emily Thornhill, lead journalist, does her best to put the facts together and discover what happened to the family that disappeared. A cast of memorable characters- my favorite being Duty- the brave family dog. The book ran a little off topic at times and there were parts that I don't feel added to the storyline or integrity of this case. (view spoiler) I did enjoy the pictures and actual quotes regarding the case. Very interesting take on a real life widow murderer.
