Dead Duck

(The second book in the Sam and Hollis Mystery series)
A novel by


The murder weapon was an expensive antique snow goose decoy--a treasure that a zillion others at the Eastern Shore Decoy Jamboree would gladly kill for.

Reporter Hollis Ball of The Watertown Gazette wasn't too crazy about Judge Fish, who recently gave a convicted wife murderer a light sentence. But Hollis is certain that her old schoolmate didn't bash the judge, as the police suspect.

So she lets her dead ex-husband--that charming ghost Sam Wescott--suck her into finding the real killer. When they succeed, Hollis will have the story of her life . . . if she lives to write about it.
