The Backseat Mystery: a Cottonwood Springs Cozy Mystery
A dead man is found in the backseat of his own car.
A medical emergency?
Or something far more sinister? Like murder?
And he was a recovering addict. Could he have overdosed on drugs?
That’s what Brigid and Sheriff Davis need to find out when they begin to assess the situation. Even though the dead man, Frankie, had been successful at fighting his addiction, when it comes to an ex-addict’s death, there seems to be a built-in bias that they’ve slipped, and their death was a result of that slip. As they work on the case, Brigid has to fight her own bias of thinking that way.
But as they begin to talk to the people Frankie knew, like his ex-wife, a picture evolves of an ex-addict doing everything he could possibly do to stay clean. He desperately wants to reconcile with his wife, and he knows the reason she left him was because of his drug abuse, which is all the more reason for him to stay clean.
Did someone hate Frankie enough to murder him and then put him in the backseat of his car? When the coroner’s report comes back that Frankie died of an overdose, it seems like a pretty open and shut case. But why would someone overdose in the backseat of their own car that was parked next to a gas station?
None of it makes sense, at least not to Brigid and Sheriff Davis, and so they continue to try and find out exactly what happened in the time period right before Frankie’s death.
And when they do discover the truth, it’s a very good thing that Brigid’s big Newfoundland dog and her husband decide to help!
