Incidents at Spitchley’s Crossing by Alberta C. Nelson

Alberta C. Nelson’s Incidents at Spitchley’s Crossing is a suspenseful murder mystery that takes place in a small, quiet, rich town in the heart of Mississippi. When Nelson says “small” and “rich,” this denotes approximately 1,200 citizens who seem to have everything they want or need in this cozy town, and when she says “quiet,” this signifies that there is never any trouble. Well, let’s just say “rarely.

The incidents in this tale begin Fourth of July weekend in 1946, when one of the town’s most prominent citizens is robbed and brutally murdered, followed by two others in the coming months. Not since 1924 has this town heard of crime. This throws Spitchley’s Crossing into absolute panic, as months pass and these puzzles remain unsolved!

A small boy and a dog hold the secrets to solving the mystery, but will the boy survive long enough to tell the tale? Will law enforcement succeed in catching this diabolical killer, or will vigilantes take over? The quiet, once sleepy, little town will never be the same again.
