Summary
Every small town has an eccentric or two, and Killdeer, New York, is no exception. Morgan Mason attracts more than a few stares when he drives through town on his ramshackle tractor wearing a skirt. His sister is mortified, his neighbor resents the Skirt Man's interference, and a local preservationist is horrified by Morgan's huge satellite dish. These minor small-town annoyances become more serious - and deadly - when the Skirt Man is killed in a tragic house fire during a benefit ballet performance starring Meredith Bly. Meredith's father, State Trooper Sebastian Bly, and her uncle, Fire Marshal Billy Nightingale, are called in to investigate what some say is a case of spontaneous human combustion. Charred wood and chair remnants at the fire scene lead Sebastian and Billy to uncover clues that reveal hidden conflicts and a shocking discovery that will change the lives of everyone in Killdeer. Bringing back the brave and imaginative family team from Tabula Rasa, author and fire investigator Shelly Reuben fans the flames of small-town passion and breathes life into an unusual local hero
Summary
An eccentric man's inclination to wear a skirt erupts into chaos in his small New York town when he dies in a house fire that some believe to be a case of spontaneous combustion, an event that reveals shocking truths
