Synopsis: "Pape has a sure-handed balance of humor and action."—Julie Hyzy, New York Times Bestselling Author

In her new job as a private eye, former police sketch artist Rory McCain has a spirited partner: Old West marshal Zeke Drummond. He may be a ghost, but when these two combine their skills, they reap justice…
 
Trouble has sprouted at Harper Farms. Top secret info has been leaked to the competition, and now there’s serious sabotage cropping up. So the farm’s beleaguered owner, Gil Harper, has called on Rory to dig up some dirt. But what Rory discovers raises a new field of questions…
 
Someone shucked Harper’s accountant and left his body in the farm’s corn maze. While Gil is quick to hire Rory to solve now not one but two crimes, the sketching sleuth isn’t so sure why the farmer wants her to focus her attention on his own family.
 
Regardless, Rory and Zeke will need to put their hands to the plow and solve this case before someone else is planted six feet under…
 
Includes a preview of the first Crystal Shop Mystery, Amethysts and Alibis, by Sharon Pape
