Boxes For Beds
February 27, 2013
A corrupt sheriff.
And no peace for Leslie Richards in Pine Hollow, Arkansas.
This historical mystery, set in 1961 when the mob ruled Hot Springs, Arkansas, puts Leslie in peril. When babies are being kidnapped in nearby Pine Hollow, the corrupt Sheriff Bates has to put this case to bed before the mob bosses come down from Chicago. They don't need the heat of a major crime investigation that could involve the feds.
Who is taking the babies? Is the current case connected to the disappearance of babies 25 years ago?
In a desperate move to solve the case before the FBI has to be called in, Bates arrests Leslie, the new woman in town, even though there's only thin circumstantial evidence against her. Better for it to be a stranger taking those babies and not one of their own.
