Scumble River Mysteries

Dead Between the Lines

A Devereaux's Dime Store Mystery
featuring Devereaux Sinclair

March 2014 from Obsidian, a division of Penguin

Denise Swanson

To keep her new business in the black, Dev opens up her shop to local clubs. But in the first meeting of the Stepping Out Book Club, the speaker storms out after members attack his poetry’s sexism and scorn for small towns. Later that night, the poet’s body is found outside Dev’s store.

Dev can’t afford for the murder to close her down, so she does a little stepping out of her own to investigate, with help from her two sexy suitors, Dr. Noah Underwood and Deputy U.S. Marshal Jake Del Vecchio. But when the killer threatens Dev, they will have to use every trick in the book to solve the case before she becomes the final chapter in this murder mystery....

Music:
Scumble River Legend, a Ballad for Small Orchestra by David Stybr (1 minute, © 2001)

How many book series have their own signature music? It's quirky, but so is Scumble River, Illinois.

An apt description of the hard work in the writing process, be it a novel or a symphony:
— Gustav Mahler on his Third Symphony, 25 July 1896 —
     "It is as if a swimmer would have a giant distance to cover to the other side: in the beginning is absolutely no sight of the end, always water, water, which never seems to become less. And in the middle, how far and unreachable the goal still seems to us! But finally it approaches nearer and nearer, until at the conclusion the floods rapidly diminish and with a few strokes it's done!"
