Reviews

"In her atmospheric, tightly written sequel, Skalka vividly captures the beauty of a remote Wisconsin peninsula that will attract readers of regional mysteries. Also recommended for fans of William Kent Krueger, Nevada Barr, and May Logue."--Library Journal, *starred review

"Skalka captures the gloomy small-town atmosphere vividly, and her intricate plot and well-developed characters will appeal to fans of William Kent Krueger."--Booklist

"Three World War II heroes about to be honored by the Coast Guard are all found dead, apparent victims of carbon monoxide poisoning while playing cards at a cabin. . . . The second installment of this first-rate series (Death Stalks Door County, 2014) provides plenty of challenges for both the detective and the reader."--Kirkus Reviews

"Death at Gills Rock is a well wrought, tightly plotted police procedural with a nuanced, brooding detective, set on the gorgeous lakefront of a frigid Wisconsin peninsula."--Hallie Ephron, New York Times best-selling author of Night Night, Sleep Tight
"Death at Gills Rock is an expertly crafted, impressively researched novel with a gripping, multilayered plot; colorful, well-drawn characters that leap right off the page; tight, punchy dialog; and a pace that grabs you by the throat and doesn't let go."--Michael Norman, author of Haunted Wisconsin

"A compelling, complex whodunit saturated with long-ago sins and festering hatreds. The author skillfully uses as her backdrop an outwardly idyllic corner of Wisconsin."--Robert Goldsborough, author of Archie in the Crosshairs, a Nero Wolfe Mystery
"Skalka takes us back to Door County--this mystery is even better than the first."--Mary Logue, author of the Claire Watkins mystery series
