Amateur sleuth Lucy Stone investigates when Tinker's Cove's annual Thanksgiving festivities are interrupted by the murder of Metinnicut Indian activist Curt Nolan and uncovers a host of suspects while cooking up a holiday dinner for twelve.

Blackwell North Amer
Tinker's Cove has a long history of Thanksgiving festivities, from visits with TomTom Turkey to the annual Warriors high school football game and Lucy Stone's impressive pumpkin pie. But this year, someone has added murder to the menu, and Lucy intends to discover who left Metinnicut Indian activist Curt Nolan deader than the proverbial Thanksgiving turkey - with an ancient war club next to his head.
The list of suspects isn't exactly a brief one. Nolan had a habit of disagreeing with just about everybody he met. He'd made a lot of waves with the Tinker's Cove board by first petitioning to have the Metinnicut tribe recognized - a move that would allow the Metinnicuts to build a casino - and then blasting the current building plans for not being true to his tribe's heritage. The very idea of a gambling hall in cozy Tinker's Cove raised bitter arguments on both sides of the issue. But could it have also inspired murder?
Between fixing dinner for twelve and keeping her four kids from tearing each other limb from limb, Lucy has a pretty full plate already. So what's a little investigation? From the hallowed halls of Professor Fred Rumford's Winchester College library to the animated pumpkin patches of Andy Brown's turkey farm, from the crowded stands lining the town's not-quite-Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade, to the blueprints for a project worth dying - and killing - for, Lucy delves into the underside of history and heritage, pride and prejudice to find a clever killer.
