About this event

Boswell presents an evening with Patricia Skalka, author of Death Casts a Shadow, the seventh in her Dave Cubiak Door County Mystery series.

With Door County caught in the grip of a fierce winter storm, Sheriff Dave Cubiak agrees to do a simple favor for a friend of his wife: he stops by to check in on an affluent widow with a questionable new suitor. His initial disquiet is easily dismissed - until she is found dead the next morning in her home. Lying at the bottom of a flight of stairs, clutching a valuable bronze sculpture, she points her outstretched hand in the direction of a nearby, nondescript ring.

The scene bears all the characteristics of an accidental fall, not unheard of for a person of her age, but something is not adding up. Later that week, an explosion in an ice fishing shack on the frozen bay leads to the discovery of another body, burned beyond recognition. Was this the widow's missing handyman? Could the two deaths be related? With what has become a hallmark for books in the series, past and present collide as Cubiak's search for answers uncovers the sad legacy of loneliness and the disquieting links between wealth and poverty on the peninsula.

Patricia Skalka is the author of six books in the popular Dave Cubiak Door County Mystery series, including Death Stalks Door County, Death at Gills Rock, and Death in Cold Water. She divides her time between Milwaukee and Door County, Wisconsin.
