sleepy small Southern town and see what slithers out when the
stakes are murderously high" -- Cecelia Tishy, author of Jealous
Heart and Fall to Pieces
"Retired high school English teacher Edna
Potter is as crotchety as they come. As a detective, she's an
absolute delight" -- Mary V. Welk, author of the Caroline

ON THE BACK COVER: Winslow is a sleepy
Southern town where everyone knows everything about everyone, or at
least they think they do until Edna Potter, the resident dragon,
shocks the community by suddenly retiring from her post as the high
school English teacher. It seems the dour spinster has been taking
mail-order detective courses over the years and is ready for a new
career as a private eye. Edna turns from terrorizing teens in the
classroom to tailing suspects and uncovering dirt in the case of a
runaway teenager. Soon Edna is up to her second chin in trouble, but
Edna keeps on coming, discovering family scandals, a missing wife,
and finally a murdered high school football hero. It's her suspects
who are running for cover, because they know there's no way around
the indomitable Miss Potter.
