A small town in Wisconsin, where everyone feels safe is shook up when a girl is found murdered. Worse yet, she was strung up in a field like a scarecrow. There aren't many murders in Friendship, Wisconsin, so the police are at a bit of a loss as to what to do. Kippy Bushman is determined to solve this case though even though all she has is the dead girls' diary.

First off, that is one very violent and gruesome death. The description of it gave me goosebumps. What a terrible way to go. The killer is clearly an insane person, completely and totally.

I really enjoyed this book though, it was quite fun for a murder mystery. The murderer was kind of a slap in the face. Not wholly unpredictable, but still surprising. The book was so good though that the mystery was only part of the fun.

Kippy was an interesting character. I don't know if I could be friends with her, but it was enjoyable watching her work. She was weird and blunt, which makes her a great character, but possibly not great friend material (actually, that sounds like great friend material).

If you are looking for a satirical murder mystery, than I definitely recommend you check this one out.

First Line:
"A police officer comforts a woman in the shoulder of a rural highway."

Favorite Line:
"He looks great but I'm trying to be practical."
