"In a small North Dakota town in 1964, indexer Marjorie Trumaine investigates the alleged suicide of the local librarian, uncovering a web of secrets that puts her own life in jeopardy. October 1964--Just months after freelance indexer Marjorie Trumaine helped solve a series of murders in Dickinson, North Dakota, she is faced with another death that pulls her into an unwanted investigation. Calla Eltmore, the local librarian, is found dead at work and everyone considers it suicide. But Marjorie can't believe that Calla would be capable of doing such a thing. Marjorie's suspicions are further aroused when she notices something amiss at Calla's wake, but the police seem uninterested in her observations. Despite pressing job commitments and the burden of caring for a husband in declining health, Marjorie sets out to uncover the truth. What she finds is a labyrinth of secrets--and threats from someone who will kill to keep these secrets hidden."--Provided by publisher.

This dark series dwells mainly in the ruminations of Marjorie Trumaine as she tries to cope with the deaths in the first book as well as nursing her paraplegic husband, her job as an indexer, and keeping up with the farm they inherited from her husband, Hank's, parents. She has a lot on her plate. When her friend, the town's librarian, apparently commits suicide, Marjorie has to see for herself. She leaves the son of her deceased neighbors and his girlfriend with her husband, Hank, in order to see for herself. She does not reach the same conclusion as the sheriff, and is astounded when he arrests the wrong person for murder. Then another woman commits suicide. Altogether, by the end of the book, we have a lot of motives, and a heart wrenching change in everyone's circumstances. Not a book to read, if you're already depressed; but the difference in attitudes in the 60s and now is somewhat shocking.
