Putnam's Sons - August 21st, By Joseph Heywood. Within months Summer People was on the Northern Michigan bestseller list. Over the course of his series, Stander has become bolder about dropping real names and products into his scenes— Traverse Magazine and Mawby sparkling wine both make appearances in Murder in the Merlot, his eighth book published in He would have simply called Cedar County, Leelanau County, Stander tells me, had he not been nervous, way back when he first wrote Summer People, about offending anyone.
The author has honed his storytelling craft since that first book, backing the crime investigations with real-life research—much of it gleaned from a longtime friend and former deputy police commissioner of Detroit. The plots are page-turners and the characters are … well, admittedly this writer has a crush on Ray Elkins—the fictitious NPR-listening, outdoorsman sheriff who grew up in Cedar County.
Ray sat on the bluff above the beach and looked across the Manitou Passage in softening light. From Sleeping Bear Point the massive dunes stretched south toward Empire, rising again and slowly leveling as they neared Platte Point. The passage was almost devoid of boat traffic, and wave height had dropped to less than a foot. When it comes on … you got it.
A cast member has been fatally stabbed. The steep but relatively short hike up the Empire Bluffs trail leads to a blue, wide-open vista punctuated by the Manitou Islands and Sleeping Bear Point to the north.

A few minutes later Ray leaned over the loft railing. I wonder if this is one of her wine pairings?
