Sorenson, Wisconsin's deputy coroner Mattie Winston takes on the murder of Bernie Chase, the president of Twilight Nursing Home's board of directors, who was found with a mysterious substance on his body and had been suspected by some of offing the home's more expensive residents.
"The funniest deputy coroner to cut up a corpse since, well, ever." --Laura Levine Sorenson, Wisconsin's deputy coroner Mattie Winston is back on the job. . .in a nursing home examining the body of Bernie Chase--the now former president of the Twilight Home's board of directors--who is covered in a powder used to turn liquids to solids. The home's residents are certain Bernie was offing the patients who cost him too much. . .and the patient that found him can't remember a thing.
Between her ongoing tug of war with Detective Hurley, fulfilling her new job requirement of seeing a shrink, and wrangling with the Twilight Home's board of directors, Mattie's got her scrubbed hands full. She'll need all of her outside-the-box forensic skills to crack a case that's turning out to be stranger--and more dangerous--than anything she's seen before!
