Rhe Brewster returns in the fourth novel in the mystery series set in the fictional town of Pequod, Maine, Death in a Mudflat. While attending a wedding with her beau Sam, a body suddenly surfaces in the mudflat nearby. With a number of officers and other members of law enforcement on the scene the investigation gets into full swing very quickly. This body isn’t just a random murder, but is tied into something far more nefarious at play in the small town.
The autopsy of the body reveals a deadly level of a remarkably surprising element and the amount of drugs in the young woman’s system connects her to a rising drug crisis happening on the local college campus. Rhe’s investigation reveals just how dark and dangerous this opioid crisis is as well as someone with their own twisted motives for targeting victims. There are heart stopping moments of intrigue and fright as Rhe becomes more and more involved in the case. No one is safe from the clutches of the villains in this novel.
Death in a Mudflat as the fourth book in a series does make mention to some previous plots and while you can read this as a stand alone, thanks to an introduction with character descriptions and some in text reminders about previous plots, I would recommend checking out the rest of the Rhe Brewster Mystery Series if you enjoy this one. Rhe’s character is a dedicated and whip smart investigator and she finds leads that no one else can. Beyond that her best friend, Paulette is also a remarkably sleuth, even though she doesn’t work for the police department. There are elements of romance and the ending of this book is exceptionally sweet and balances out the intense drama surrounding Rhe and those she cares about during this case. You can find Death in a Mudflat on sale now.
