GREENLAW, Linda. Slipknot. New York : Hyperion, . Advance UncorrectedProof. Pp (6),-260,(2), 8vo, illustrated white card covers. Linda Green law (b. December 22, 1960, Connecticut) raised in Maine, an author and fisher. “In her bestselling nonfiction book All Fishermen Are Liars, Linda Greenlaw confessed a desire to write fiction -- and readers responded with an enthusiastic "Please do!" At last, she satisfies their hunger with this sharp-witted, compulsively readable mystery, the first in a series featuring marine investigator Jane Bunker. When Jane moves back to the sleepy Maine fishing community where she was born, it's to escape the seamy crime scenes and unsavory characters that crossed her path in Miami. Surely whatever crimes are committed in touristy, idyllic Green Haven won't involve anything as nasty as what she saw in Florida. It's a bit of a shock, then, when Nick Dow, the town drunk, turns up dead, and it's not the simple accident that everyone assumes it to be. Jane soon discovers that Dow wasn't even a drunk --it was all an act. But why? And what does it have to do with a heated town hall meeting about fishing rights and paternity suits? The more Jane digs, the more confused she gets. Only two things are certain: Nothing is what i t seems; and the whole town is in each other's business. But it's not untilJane impulsively hops on a boat with the killer -- a boat that suddenly he ads out to sea -- that things become downright dangerous . . . “ - from theback cover. Linda Greenlaw lives on Isle au Haut, Maine, where she captain s a lobster boat. Very good. 10.00
