THE BLURB

Beloved amateur sleuth Tess Spencer returns in this fourth and final Murder in the Mountains mystery.

Tess has her work cut out for her—from her day job at the police station to her nights on the campaign trail with her husband, she’s stretched thin. Her two young children also keep her busy, but thankfully she has a supportive mother-in-law who lives just next door.

When the legendary Mothman makes a terrifying appearance and a local librarian goes missing, Tess feels compelled to get involved, convinced something evil has been unleashed on her little town. Then another woman disappears—this one bearing an eerie resemblance to Tess—and the police receive a cryptic message hinting that a serial killer is on the prowl.
After a nightmarish turn of events completely upends the Spencer family, Tess musters her courage to hunt for the monstrous murderer in the woods…even if she has to walk straight into the Mothman’s lair to do it.

False Pretense brings a stunning and memorable conclusion to the award-winning Murder in the Mountains series.

THE AUTHOR

18dd1qn1ajtn1lkcl03ksn06ec._SX450_Award-winning novelist Heather Day Gilbert enjoys writing mysteries and Viking historicals. She brings authentic family relationships to the page, and she particularly delights in heroines who take a stand to protect those they love. Avid readers say Heather’s realistic characters–no matter what century–feel like best friends. When she’s not plotting stories, this native West Virginian can often be found hanging out with her husband and four children, playing video games, or reading Agatha Christie novels.

MY REVIEW

“In West Virginia folklore, the Mothman is a humanoid creature reportedly seen in the Point Pleasant area from November 15, 1966, to December 15, 1967… Man-Sized Bird … Creature … Something.” – excerpted from Wikipedia.

I always enjoy a visit to picturesque Mayberry-like Buckneck, where family and friends look out for one another. A pleasant community where nothing exciting happens—at least until murder strikes!

I first met Tess Spencer in Miranda Warning, and appreciated her curious mind and sharp mind. No matter what life throws at her (even murder) she tackles the challenge and comes out the winner.

Ms. Gilbert takes Tess and all her characters—and the reader—through twists and turns. For every answer, more clues pop up. Not to mention dead bodies.

The author drew on local myth and skillfully wrapped a convincing story around it, with [SPOILER.] This reader was eager to get to the end, and yet not—it’s the last visit with Tess Spencer.
