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.
