The long-awaited new Lyon and Bea Wentworth adventure. The Spook. A retired and mentally unstable Vietnam Veteran. Harmless eccentric friend to some; weird and threatening enemy to others; and now perhaps a murderer in the community. Lyon Wentworth, a writer of books for children, and Bea, his wife, a Connecticut state senator, team up with long standing Police Chief Rocco Herbert to unravel a new mystery. But nothing is as simple as it seems; and the whole town, including the pastor and an influential congressman are involved, along with a fearsome and female state governor hell bent on revenge.
