The book was released in October 2016 and is the third volume in the Dave Cubiak Door County Mystery series from the University of Wisconsin Press. The series kicked off with "Death Stalks Door County," which was short-listed for the CWA 2014 Book of the Year Award, and was quickly followed by "Death At Gills Rock," named One of the Year's Best 2015 by Chicago Book Revew. An award-winning writer and native Chicagoan, Patricia made the jump to fiction following a successful freelance career that included a lengthy stint as a Staff Writer for the Reader’s Digest. She’s also co-author of "Nurses On Our Own," a true story of two pioneering local nurse practitioners that was optioned for a TV movie.
