Ellie Stone is a professed modern girl in 1960s' upstate New York, a young reporter playing by her own rules while searching for a killer and putting her own life at risk. A dead girl in the woods. Three little oil spots on the dirt road. A Dr. Pepper bottle cap in the shallow grave. And a young reporter, armed with nothing but a camera. Evening is falling on a wet, gray, autumn day in upstate New York. Ellie Stone, twenty-four-year-old reporter for a small local daily, stands at a crossroads in her career and in her life. Alone in the world, battling her own losses and her own demons, Ellie is ready to pack it in and return to New York a failure. Then she hears the dispatch over the police scanner. A hunter, tramping through a muddy wood north of the small town of New Holland, has tripped over the body of a twenty-one-year-old society girl half-buried in the leaves. Ellie is the first reporter on the scene. The investigation provides a rare opportunity to rescue her drowning career, but all leads seem to die on the vine, until Ellie takes a daring chance that unleashes unintended chaos. Wading through a voyeuristic tangle of small-town secrets, she makes some desperate enemies, who want her off the case. Dead if necessary.

Great read with lots of red herrings. Had me guessing to almost the end of who did it, why and how. Great job on the time period and setting, highly recommend this one.

The setting is small town upstate New York 1960. Ellie Stone is working for the New Holland Republic and competing with the owner's brother-in-law for the job she wants - crime reporter. When the college-aged daughter of a local judge is murdered, Ellie finds herself one step ahead of the police and two steps ahead of her rival as she tracks a killer... or is it killers? Ziskin's depiction of the time period is spot-on and the plot and characterizations are extremely well done. Ellie is a likable, if complex, narrator and heroine.
