Book Description

April 16 2007
Amid beautiful snowscapes and elegant living at a White Mountain ski resort, a supposed accidental death acts as catalyst for two separate events. Greg, a rock climber who can’t wait to get to some of the area’s peaks, finds it impossible to ignore inconsistencies in the death he was near-witness to. At the same time, a middle-aged woman pursues her heart’s desire: a lone visit to the national park. Greg, intent on investigation, finds himself diverted into helping the local search team. The diversion, the team itself, and incidents on the hiking trails all confirm his doubts about the earlier death. With growing suspicions and a fearful collection of near-clues, Greg finds help from two unlikely sources—an aging tractor-trailer driver and an elderly fuss-pot with a full measure of curiosity. Gradually, he begins to question who that “accidental death” was intended for. Another perilous accident awaits

5.0 out of 5 stars I Love A Good Mystery June 1 2007
By Betty Fasig - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
One of the nicest ways to spend a rainy evening is to fluff up a couple of pillows, climb into your bed and read a good mystery. I recommend Nancy A. Lindley-Gauthier's new book A Case of Overkil.l It features an intricately woven plot and characters that are tangible, mentally and physically. The mysterious happenings begin on an icy mountain road in New Hampsire and you will have to read what happens next. It is a very, very good story.

4.0 out of 5 stars Review of A Case of Overkill April 30 2007
By Maura Clegg - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
From the first sentence Nancy takes you on a journey you won't soon forget; a car accident, a petulant son and a missing wife. How much more can go wrong in this small town on the slopes of Maketto Mountain, NH? The plot keeps you guessing from beginning to end, sometimes letting you think you have found the solution, but the story then takes a turn and you know that you are left guessing again.

Can the unlikely trio of an Aussie Rock Climbing Instructor, part-time desk clerk, and a displaced soil surveyor find out who is causing choas and committing murder at Maketto Mountain and still keep themselves safe from harm; only time will tell.

The attention to character and detail weave a web of suspense that will leave even the most discerning mystery lover anxiously turning page after page. A must read for anyone who loves a good mystery.

This book is so full of typos and grammatical errors that it is hard for me to follow the story line.
5.0 out of 5 stars An Engaging and Enjoyable Mystery June 4 2007

Format:Paperback
Reviewed by Joe Graham for Reader Views (5/07)

Bob Gallagher, is a truck driver who finds himself caught in an unexpected snowstorm on a narrow New England mountain pass road and accidentally kills a young girl, Rayleena Johnson, who was on her way to take a ski-season teaching intern job at The Black Mountain Inn which is close to the local ski slopes of Silver Peak. The local sheriff, Erickson, is convinced that the girl's death was just a tragic accident, but Greg Tayler, 20, from Australia, who is serving a four-month-long internship as a rock-climbing instructor at the inn is not convinced, and that accident and Greg's reaction is the impetus that sets the plot in motion. Before the accident, Greg had seen the girl's car struggling on the road and he had heard the truck coming over the pass and he had driven down from the inn to the highway on an ATV and had actually witnessed the crash. He was convinced that he saw two people in the car ten minutes before the fatal crash.

From that start, Lindley-Gauthier builds a riveting story that kept this reader turning the pages to try to learn who the villain was. To add to the plot, Gallagher's wife Dottie hears about the accident and decides to come up to the accident site to check on her husband and before she reaches the accident site, she becomes distracted and stops in the local wildlife refuge which is near the inn. She decides to take a short hike and enjoy being out in nature and in the process becomes disoriented and gets lost. Dottie has become a little unbalanced and they are back in this area because she wanted to come back home and Bob has given up his well-paying soil business to drive a truck for Dottie's brother so she could do just that.

Bob discovers that his wife may be missing in the wilderness area when her car is found in the refuge parking lot and he immediately starts searching for with the help of Greg. Bob's upset over the tragic wreck is compounded by the disappearance of his wife. And this is when the mystery begins to deepen. Greg and Bob discover several traps on the trails and Greg wonders how extensive were the plans of the killer to take out Rayleena and why the killer wanted to kill her. Greg enlists the help of others at the inn but he becomes suspicious of just about everyone and the reader and Greg are wondering who he can trust. The author keeps the reader guessing to end of the book who was the killer and what was going on with those traps on the trails.

I thoroughly enjoyed "A Case of Overkill" and would recommend it to any mystery reader. This is not a police detective story, but just a story about regular people caught up in a mystery that they feel the need to solve. The story was engaging and definitely kept me reading to the conclusion and the conclusion was not what I expected as Lindley-Gauthier kept me guessing until the final wrap-up.
