Sheriff Jeff McQuede becomes suspicious when a robber breaks into the Coal County Museum and steals only one item – a black-and-white class photograph. Under the name Jerome Slade the photographer had printed two ominous words: never graduated.
When a body is unearthed beneath the newly demolished school, McQuade realizes Slade had not left Black Mountain the night of the spring dance. McQuade soon uncovers hidden rivalries between Slade and his classmates. When he discovers that Heather Kenwell and the woman of his dreams, Loris Conner, were rivals for Slade’s affection, McQuade fears to find out the truth.
Theft, blackmail, and another brutal killing lead back to photographs taken by Black Mountain’s eccentric photographer, Bruce Fenton. While others see an innocent collection, McQuade sees murder in black and white.
“I’m pretty black and white myself!”
I love these authors, written with believable characters and good plots. I love the fact there is no bad language peppered throughout the book. I realize I have to hear it occasionally out in the world but I sure don’t have to pay to read it! Thank you for being considerate of those who hate trashy language. Being a black and white person I loved this! Read it– you’ll be glad you did!
