Dusty Book: A Field of Darkness by Cornelia Read
Posted by: Karen Kleckner Keefe

2013_mystery-month-buttonNow a Syracuse newspaper report, former Long Island debutante Madeline Dare can’t quite shake her upper class upbringing, no matter how far removed her current circumstances seem. In A Field of Darkness, her two worlds collide when a story about the 20-year-old murder of two young hippies points to her uber-preppy cousin as a main suspect. Believing her cousin to be too spoiled and incompetent to pull of a decades-long cover up. Madeline’s on her own when husband Dean is literally off working on the railroad, so she takes up her own investigation–meeting some upper New York State locals who are as Faulkner as she is Fitzgerald. The beginning of a smart, sophisticated series.
