Book Review

“Dashofy takes small town politics and long simmerin
g feuds, adds colorful 
characters,  and  brings  it  to  a  boil  in  a  welcome  new  s
eries.”  –  Hallie 
Ephron, Author of 
There Was an Old Woman
Zoe Chambers, paramedic and deputy coroner in rural
 Pennsylvania’s tight-knit Vance 
Township, has been privy to a number of local secre
ts over the years, some of them her 

own. But secrets become explosive when a dead body 
is found in the Township Board 
President’s abandoned car.  
As a January blizzard rages, Zoe and Police Chief Pe
te Adams launch a desperate search 
for the killer, even if it means uncovering secrets
 that could not only destroy Zoe and 
Pete, but also those closest to them. 
“The  texture  of  small  town  Pennsylvania  comes  alive
  in  Annette  Dashofy's  debut 
mystery.  Discerning  mystery  readers  will  appreciate

gripping storytelling. Zoe Chambers is an authentic
 character who will entertain us for a 
long time.” – Nancy Martin, Author of the Blackbird

“New  York  has  McBain,  Boston  has  Parker,  now  Vance

protagonist  in  Zoe  Cambers.  She's  smart,  she's  sexy

she's one hell of a paramedic on the job. It's grea

n in Vance Township, Monongahela 
County, PA.” – Mary Jane Maffini, Author of
