Signed by the author on the title page. Fourth volume in the Cork O'Connor mystery series.
When the body of a beautiful high school student is discovered on a hillside four months after her disappearance on New Year's Eve, all evidence points to her boyfriend, local bad boy Solemn Winter Moon. Despite Solemn's self-incriminating decision to go into hiding, former Aurora, Minnesota Sheriff Cork O'Connor isn't about to hang the crime on a kid he's convinced is innocent.
In an uphill battle to clear Solemn's name, Cork encounters no shortage of adversity. Some--like bigotry and bureaucracy--he knows all too well. What Cork isn't prepared for is the emergence of a long-held resentment from his own childhood. And when Solemn reappears, claiming to have seen a vision of Jesus Christ in Blood Hollow, the mystery becomes thornier than Cork could ever have anticipated. And that's when the miracles start happening.
Mild toning to leaves, fine in dust wrapper and protective mylar.
