Rona Shively has done it again. She’s placed herself in an awkward position that could spell death for her. Searching for another missing person, this time a teacher at the school Rona used to attend herself, danger hovers closer than she thinks. Rona interviews Principal Taft at Pierce County High School and finds absolutely no leads to follow.

After much thought, Rona is convinced the answer lies at the school. Working on instinct alone, Rona checks out the school and it’s basement and gets the surprise of her life.

Trey, Rona’s ex-lover goes with her into the school’s basement. Not only does Trey want to resume their relationship, but his desire causes Rona to question her relationship with Norm. (Rona and Norm established their relations in In the Wash.) What to do about the men in her life takes up a lot of her thinking time.

Rona’s sister, Jane and her children come to stay a while with Rona and lends more worry to her already crowded mind. How could she have gotten her sister involved in such a dangerous situation? Rona asks herself and proceeds to worry that much more.

I liked Rona Shively because she is so down-to-earth. She is so tough, but underneath that toughness lies a tender heart. The story is good, the plotting great. Rona’s obvious lack of martial arts training, those ever popular talents of most of today’s private investigators and law enforcement authorities, doesn’t affect her ability to handle her criminals. Read the book. It is another delightful, but short, mystery.

Rebecca Benston is a freelance writer and poet. Born in Springfield, Ohio, Benston is both a graduate of Antioch University McGregor with a dual major in Management and Human Development and a graduate of Capella University with a Master’s degree in Human Services. Benston is a member of the Sisters In Crime Internet Chapter and a content producer for Associated Content.

Her first mystery novella, In The Wash: The Rona Shively Stories was immediately picked up by PublishAmerica. In 2007, Benston plans to release the second instalment in the series, titled Under Lock and Key: The Rona Shively Stories.
