Storm Track

Storm Track, 7th in the Judge Deborah Knott series by Margaret Maron, won the Agatha Award in 2000. The only other books I've read by this author are Bootlegger's Daughter and Up Jumps the Devil. An easy read, I finished this book in a day. It is as interesting as Bootlegger's Daughter, but I think there are too many named characters one runs across occasionally. It's hard for me to keep all those brothers and cousins straight.

from the back of the book:

Violent storms often hit Colleton County, North Carolina, but when a local attorney's promiscuous wife is killed, the murder blows the lids off more homes than last year's hurricane. As the victim's numerous lovers-including a handsome cousin of Judge Deborah Knott-scurry for cover stories, the judge begins her own investigation. What she finds is a tangled web of extramarital affairs and secrets linking half the county ... while a massive hurricane rages up the Carolina coast, and a very real human killer prepares to strike again.

At the end I had more questions about the crime than answers. We are told who-dunnit, but there are lots of loose ends.
