About the book

Water powered grist mills are fast disappearing, in need of restoration and preservation. Marcy Dehanne, newly-minted "mill consultant" arrives at the derelict mill to find a corpse. She is determined to save her job, save the mill, and solve the crime–and maybe die trying.



At any grist mill the main attraction for me is the water wheel. Wading through the undergrowth, swishing with Friday afternoon abandon I made my way around the tiny mill to the overshot wheel and naturally looked at the rusting buckets and down. And saw it. Surprise turned my legs rubbery, my stomach queasy. I looked again at what I hoped not to see.
