MURDER AT MOOT POINT

KIRKUS REVIEW

 Driving up to foggy Moot Point, Oregon, to deliver a contract to reclusive New Age author Jack Monroe, literary agent Charlie Greene finds her stay prolonged by the discovery of old Georgette Glick and her Schwinn under the wheels of Charlie's Toyota. Luckily, Sheriff Wes Bennett, who has a thing for Charlie, keeps her under house arrest at the Hide-a-bye Motel and even lets her mingle with the native Grape- Nuts--non-grieving widower Frank Glick; holistic florist Paige Magill; holistic veterinarian Doc Chuck Withers; fearful neighbor Gladys Bergkvist; and Byronic artist Michael Cermack, who's painted a picture of a hundred-year-old local shipwreck that Charlie's been having nightmares about for weeks. Has she been sharing out-of-body experiences with meditative Jack? What's the connection between Georgette's killing and the disappearance of Gladys's husband Olie? And do ``LIFE FORCE VITAMINS'' really give you a ``REJUVENATED SEX LIFE''? Entertainingly oddball--a refreshing spin on Millhiser's increasingly trying tales (The Mirror, The Threshold, etc.) of psychic adventure.
