Third novel in Maron's Deborah Knott series. "In Shooting at Loons we follow Judge Deborah Knott to the state's lush Crystal Coast, where expensive yachts ride at anchor. . . and murders wash in on the 'Down East' tide. Asked to sit in for a hospitalized judge in gracious old Beaufort, Deborah hopes to spend a restful week at her cousin's nearby Harkers Island cottage; but her very first clamming expedition turns up the corpse of a well-known fisherman in the shallow waters. Discovering the body puts her right in the middle of the fight between the locals who have long made their living from the sea and the new tide of well-to-do 'dingbatters': weekenders and land developers who view the coast as their personal playground and gold mine."; 5¾" - 6¾" Tall; Signed by Author
