General Note:
Book 11 of the China Bayles Mysteries (series numeration from NoveList).
Summary, etc.:
Indigo was once a thriving community, but times have been tough on this Texas town. After the boll weevils, the Depression, and the highway department had their way with Indigo, it nearly faded off the map. There had been nothing left but a few old folks, living on their Social Security checks while watching the town fall apart around them. But now, as artists flock to the countryside in growing numbers, Indigo is experiencing a revival. In town to teach a Colors to Dye For workshop, herbalist China Bayles, like so many others, is committed to bringing Indigo back to life. Only one person stands in their way; longtime resident Casey Ford, who has decided to sell his profitable mining rights. Once the deal is done, Indigo will be dead and buried. But when Ford winds up dead himself - from a shotgun blast - China finds her curiosity piqued. Along with her best friend, Ruby, she quietly begins her own investigation to discover who is behind the murder. Before long, it becomes chillingly clear that this is a town with its share of dark secrets - secrets that someone thinks are worth killing to keep.
