Death Rides the Ferry
Winner of the Midwest Book Award for Fiction—Mystery/Thriller
Sheriff Dave Cubiak is ensnared in a killer's cunning gambit (Book 4)
After a long absence, the Viola da Gamba Music Festival returns to picturesque Washington Island on the tip of the Door County peninsula where Sheriff Dave Cubiak enjoys a rare day off. Tourists and a documentary film crew hover around the musicians, but the jubilant mood quickly evaporates when a body is found aboard the local ferry.
Residents recall the disastrous festival decades earlier, when a woman died and the fabled yellow viol vanished without a trace. Linking the past with the present, and with the lives of those he holds most dear in peril, Cubiak pursues a ruthless killer into the stormy northern reaches of Lake Michigan.
