Revenge provides the theme for Edgar-finalist Sefton’s enjoyable 11th knitting mystery featuring Fort Connor, Colo., accountant Kelly Flynn (after 2012 Cast On, Kill Off). Twelve years before, investment adviser Jared Rizzoli ran a Ponzi scheme that defrauded many Fort Connor residents, some of whom lost more than just money. Rizzoli went to prison for his crimes, but now he’s back, unrepentant and unwelcome. After a couple of run-ins with the locals, Rizzoli is found murdered in his car. Kelly takes a keen interest in the case, especially since two of her friends are prime suspects, and once again turns amateur sleuth. While the ending is given away a little too early, series fans will delight in the side action of the regular cast of characters and be on the edge of their seats with a cliffhanger ending.
