A make-or-break election. A food poisoning epidemic. A town in chaos.

With a highly charged local election consuming the community, Police Chief Cassidy Chambers braces herself for a challenging day of breaking up petty conflicts and tamping down high emotions. But when widespread food poisoning spreads among potential voters across the island, Cassidy smells something rotten in the air.

As Cassidy examines every possibility to uncover what’s going on, local enigma Anthony Gilead again comes on her radar. The man is running for mayor and his cult-like following is growing at an alarming rate. Cassidy feels certain he has a spy embedded in her inner circle. The problem is that her pool of suspects gets deeper every day.

Can Cassidy get to the bottom of what’s eating away at her peaceful island home? Will voters turn out despite the outbreak of illness plaguing their tranquil town? And the even bigger question: Has darkness come to stay on Lantern Beach?

My thoughts:  DEAD ON ARRIVAL is the fourth book in the Lantern Beach PD series and readers will want to read them in order...On the  Lookout, Attempt to Locate, First Degree Murder, and DEAD ON ARRIVAL.

Ms. Barritt's mysteries are compelling, can't-put-down reads filled with old friends from other Lantern Beach books. I have become involved in these characters' lives and care for them. Not only that, but Ms. Barritt has unexpected twists  that the reader never sees coming. Who-dun-it? You might guess. I had a niggling suspicion but it still surprised me. 

I can't wait for the exciting conclusion of this action-packed series, Plan of Action. Review coming soon.

I was given a copy free. All opinions are my own.
