Praise for Wolf Bog:
“Wheeler’s deep sense of place—the Berkshires—illuminates a deftly woven plot and a quirky cast of characters that will keep you glued to the pages until the last stunning revelation. It’s always a pleasure to be in the hands of a pro.”
Kate Flora, Edgar and Anthony nominated author
“When a long-lost teenager turns up dead, a cold case turns into hot murder. A deliciously intriguing Berkshire mystery.”
Sarah Smith, Agatha Award-winning author
of The Vanished Child and Crimes and Survivors
This mystery got off to a great start with a local hiking group finding a well preserved body in a bog. Solving the murder mystery from the past requires uncovering relationships and Kathryn, the amateur sleuth, is relentless in her pursuit. I liked how bit by bit, secrets from the past are revealed. There are many possible suspects and a few red herrings to keep us guessing.
Wheeler has added a side issue of an unexpected pregnancy in the past, an adoption, and a person now claiming to be the baby long ago given up. We wonder if a swindler is afoot.
I liked the novel. While it is part of a series, I have not read the others and felt this one read well on its own. I appreciate the information about how a bog practically embalms a body. The mystery and its investigation was good as was the array of local characters. I'll be watching for more from Wheeler.
My rating: 4/5 stars.
