Summary
"Victoria Trumbull, a ninety-two-year-old native of Martha's Vineyard, and her granddaughter, Elizabeth, spot a man in trouble near the top of a cliff. Elizabeth goes for help, but the man dies before he can be rescued. The man had been hired as a consultant on the proposed building of a controversial casino. The police call it an accident, but his death is just the first in what becomes a series of baffling murders. Victoria, now a deputy police officer after proving her value in fighting crime on the island, is on the case, assisted by her Native American friend Dojan Minnowfish. Her new official position gives her the confidence to take risks that horrify the police chief. But Victoria compensates for her physical limitations by out-thinking the murderers."--from NoveList
