Death Rides The Ferry – Patrician Skalka

This is Skalka at her best!  Again, Door County compels a beautiful vista painted with  clear, lyrical  language.  And this time there is music in the spheres, with viola de gamba musicians bringing the 15th century up to ours.

A bucolic Gamba festival offering  simple, bright viol  performances  is suddenly shattered by intrigue.  Here a 40 year old crime and two current murders collide.

Again, Cubiak, is thrown into an investigation of a life time that threatens a personal trial by fire.  Excruciating flash backs from one other such trial breath down his neck as he tries to put all the missing pieces in place.
