Bury the Hatchet in Dead Mule Swamp – Anastasia Raven Mysteries #4
Anastasia Raven opens a box containing a bloody hatchet, apparently sent as some sort of warning to her friend Cora and Cora's ex-husband. When a hacked-up body is discovered in the Petite Sauble River at the small village of Jalmari, everyone is stunned at the victim's identity. Continued puzzling about discoveries just don't add up. Ana also agrees to participate in a zany conspiracy with a tall and handsome man.
