The 4th in the series and I have enjoyed them all. Homicide Detective, Lieutenant Lucinda Pierce, is back. A woman opens her front door to get her newspaper and is shocked to find the dead body of her father-in-law lying on her front porch. There is no blood, no sign of foul play, but he is dead. The strange thing is, her father-in-law, who had Alzheimer’s has been missing for 6 months! AND he has a pocket full of acorns! The lady and her husband call the police and Lt. Pierce is dispatched to the home. Then she ends up talking to Sgt. Butler from Missing Persons and he tells her there has been a real uptake in the numbers of elderly people in the last year. They all had some form of dementia and there was no signs of violence in any of the disappearances. Lt. Pierce and Sgt. Black work together to try to solve the mystery of the missing people. This book was like the first 3 books in the Lucinda Pierce mysteries….very good and an enjoyable read. I gave it 4 stars.
