A Deadly Thaw: A Mystery / Sarah Ward / 377 pages

  The second volume in the Detective Sadler series by Sarah Ward. I enjoyed the first one so much I immediately started the second one. Once again the past has come back to haunt not only the police force but also the village of Bampton. In 2004 a woman was convicted of killing her husband. She offered no defense, no reason as to why she committed the crime. She went to prison and served her time. In 2016, her husband was killed again. What is going on?
  Detective Sadler has been charged with finding out the truth. First what happened back in 2004 because it is the belief that will have an affect on the present. His team is back and just as competitive as ever. They have to tread carefully because it looks like the first investigation wasn't handled correctly. The story alternates once again between suspects, interested parties and the police. This is a fast paced plot with a lot of twists. I am in awe of the author who can keep all the different character threads spinning without causing the reader confusion. Excellent mystery.
