Nestled in the picturesque Catskills, the village of Lenape Hollow is in full bustle as it prepares to celebrate the 225th anniversary of its founding. Freelance book editor Mikki Lincoln has been drafted to update and correct the pageant script, left over from the town’s bicentennial and housed at the historical society, currently under renovation. But when construction reveals human remains walled up in a fireplace, Mikki shifts her focus from cold reading to cold case. Just as her investigation seems to have hit a brick wall, a new murder rattles the townspeople. Now Mikki will need to go off script to make a connection between the bicentennial bones and the current homicide—before a killer deletes her future tense . . .
