Blue Deer Thaw

Genre: Mystery and Thriller, Fiction; Author: Jamie Harrison; Publisher: Hyperion

The winters in Blue Deer, Mont., are long, with a sinister snowy blanket capable of hiding a body or two. In Blue Deer Thaw, the latest episode of Jamie Harrison’s quirky series, Sheriff Jules Clement — is after the killer of a woman found frozen in the snow. Harrison knows how to build tension without sacrificing depth. Yet she’s funny, too. Her nicely layered story is peppered with wit and bizarre characters like the rich eccentric who stores a priceless art collection in an old wreck of a hotel. Most amusing subplot: a local couple’s ongoing gastronomic battle over the menu to be served at their wedding reception. B
