Means to an End By
Death and theft strike the rural community of Higgins Point, Wisconsin, and police chief Dexter Loomis has his hands full. The events are seemingly unrelated. The home of a famous local artist is burglarized; a reporter dies in a car crash; and one of the artist's business associates drops dead of a possible heart attack. But as Dexter investigates, he links all incidents to a twenty-year-old unsolved murder.
