Gwendy's Magic Feather by Richard Chizmar
A sequel to 'Gwendy's Button Box' only Stephen King does not co-author it this time. Congresswoman Gwendy returns to her hometown of Castle Rock for Christmas 1999. Sheriff Norris Ridgewick is investigating the case of 2 missing girls. Inbetween pages of Americana, Gwendy gets drawn into the case in this knowingly abstract gentle cosy tale. This was good.
“Used to say it whenever he wanted to sound clever.”
“Standard autumn uniform of an adult New England make – camouflage.”
“One of the town's most infamous – and unsavoury – citizens.”
“Spoke those words to her, and she believes them to be true.”
