Midwest Book Review, “Ghost Dagger”, May 12, 2017

  • Synopsis: Alice MacDonald Greer is in Scotland to visit Gran, the mother of her late husband, Jordie. After his death, the two women found solace in each other, and Alice unequivocally considers herself part of Gran's family. But that family is now threatened when the death of a local man is pinned on Robbie who is Gran's daughter and Alice's sister-in-law.
  • Robbie had been romantically involved with the murder victim, Angus McBride, the stubborn land manager for a prominent local family. Alice is sure that Robbie had nothing to do with the crime. Now she just has to prove it to the skeptical local police force. But she's a long way from Texas, and the town inspector doesn't like her interference.
  • The hunt for the true killer leads Alice to a group of nighthawkers, treasure hunters who use metal detectors to find ancient loot and sell it on the black market. There are rumors of a Viking hoard hidden in the cliffs, and someone is desperate to find it!
  • Critique: The fourth novel in author Helen Currie Foster's simply outstanding 'Alice MacDonald Greer' mystery series, Ghost Dagger continues to document Foster's originality and complete mastery of the mystery/suspense genre. A deftly crafted and compelling read from cover to cover, Ghost Dagger is certain to be an enduringly popular addition to community library Mystery/Suspense collections. It should be noted for the personal reading lists of all mystery buffs in general, and Helen Currie Foster fans in particular, that Ghost Dagger is also available in a Kindle format ($7.99).
