Synopsis: "DOLLY, IT'S YOUR MOTHER."
Dolly. Jackie Ruth Wynter had called Alice that for years. Alice hated it. Almost as much as she hated her old life as Alice Wynter when she lived with her torn up family in the small town of Redding, Maine. Her twin brother Chris had been fading fast, transforming into a mirror image of their drunken, violent father. Now Jackie Ruth was telling her that Papa was dead and Chris was missing.
Alice resigns herself to return, helping her mother and the local police with the mystery surrounding the crime. But there are some family secrets her mother would sooner take to the grave than reveal. As the authorities come closer to solving the mystery of the men in her family, she begins to realize her past life as Alice Wynter is the missing part of the puzzle. But who is searching out the former Alice?
Wynter family secrets run deep, and they all have something to hide in the bone-chilling cold of Maine lake country. The mystery of her father's murder and brother's disappearance will capture your attention well past when the first has gone out.
Review: Dead of Wynter is a tight and gripping novel which will keep you guessing until the very end. I am seriously impressed with the writing talent of Mr. Seidel. There are secrets that do no harm and then there are secrets that come back to haunt you. Alice Wynter has long been keeping secrets and now her family may be paying the ultimate price. The action and thrills keep you on your toes! Dead of Wynter is a wicked good novel - pick it up and find yourself lost in a mystery that spans generations.
