Bogged Down

An ancient bog hidden in a forest is the perfect backdrop for murder . . .

Bogged Down is a mystery set on Vashon Island, a place that has been described as Mayberry-meets-Burning Man. Lavender (Lew) Lewis moved there because it is only a twenty-minute ferry ride from Seattle, yet light years away in tempo and character. She grew up on a commune in Alaska, joined the army at 17, does woods parkour for exercise and HR investigations to earn a living. Life in her waterfront cabin with her two food-obsessed cats is predictable and relatively stress free. Until she leads a tour group into an ancient bog on the island and discovers a body.

“… a beautifully-written, intricately-plotted classic whodunnit with a heroine (Lavender “call-me-Lew” Lewis) unlike any I’ve encountered…”Harley Jane Kozak, Agatha, Anthony, and Macavity-award winning novelist

“The author’s vivid imagery will transport you to this island paradise and you won’t want to leave.Cindy Sample, Five-Time LEFTY Award Finalist Best Humorous Mystery
