Life and Death in the Hocking Hills
|Local authors vary the fare for your summer reading
||As a long-time
resident of Hocking County, I've never seen anything more violent than a frog dining on a
June bug. But when you lead a quiet life, it is sometimes fun to pretend that danger lurks
at every turn, and that is why I love a good mystery. And it is definitely murder he
wrote. Just about everyone in Cron's book has a reason to kill, and I guarantee that even
the most adept armchair sleuths won't figure this one out until they close the cover for
the last time.
Because the killer is still out there, by the way.
Just a Piddlin' Little, Two-Bit Murder by Rodney L. Cron (AmErica House, $21.95) and Backwoods Musings by Ed Fassig (The Backwoods Publishing Company, $12.95) are both available at Great Expectations Bookstore and Cafe.
