Summary

In Deadly Night Shade, Cynthia Riggs introduced Victoria Trumbull, one of the most energetic amateur sleuths on record, notwithstanding her 92 years, or possibly because of them. Now, Cynthia Riggs gives us the story of her first case and how she came to be a police deputy.

A little island town is the scene of a conflict between two men of God: the outgoing minister of the local church and his successor, each known as Jack. But Victoria is concerned with a series of unexpected deaths, which turn out to be the result of anonymous food packages left on people's doorsteps. Victoria's get-up-and-go attitude, her courage, and her exhaustive knowledge of Martha's Vineyard and its people once again help her to discover the truth behind the mystery.

Viva Victoria: listen to Deadly Night Shade.

Critic reviews

"Absorbing....A sensitive observer of the scene, Riggs writes with warmth and humor about all-too-human characters with whom readers can readily identify." (Publishers Weekly)

Good book

Great storyline, kept me guessing until the end! I love Victoria and her keen ability of solving a mystery.

A British accented mystery with technical issues

Every character in this book set in Martha’s Vineyard has a British accent. There are chunks missing from the book like a record skipping. And the character voices are randomly switched up. The book is light mystery that might be enjoyable…
