Publisher Comments:

An Emma Lord Mystery.

Christmas in the town of Alpine means fresh snow, carolers, even a sleigh. But then the discovery of a woman's leg in the lake, along with that of another young woman's nude, half-frozen body, deflates everyone's high spirits. But as Emma Lord, editor and publisher of The Alpine Advocate, follows up on the story, the bits and pieces of the young women who keep turning up start adding up to a murder scheme so sinister it may well land Emma on her own obituary page . . .

From the Paperback edition.

Synopsis:

The discovery of the dismembered bodies of two women in an Alpine lake leads Emma Lord, the editor of the newspaper, and her assistant, to investigate--an endeavor that puts Emma in the company of pranksters, peepers, and thieves. Original.
