“Painted Death” is set in Raven Creek, an Alaskan coastal town. The disappearance of a local fishing captain leads to community discord over the inclusion of his boat in the town’s commemorative mural, “Lost Seamen of Raven Creek.”
Kira Logan, the visiting designer of the mural, must solve the mystery of the captain’s death and murders of two other people to save her project, help the children of the captain, and reassure the worried townspeople.
The smuggling of drugs into the community adds to the conflict as the search for the distributor becomes more intense. Bizarre murders complicate the investigation and leave the police guessing.
Can the murderer be found before killing again? Kira risks her life to find the answer.
