Uneasy Prey (A Zoe Chambers Mystery)
Cozy Mystery
6th in Series
Setting – Pennsylvania

On the way to the emergency room, an elderly woman regains consciousness long enough to inform paramedic Zoe Chambers that her fall down the basement steps was no accident. Before she can say more, she succumbs to her injuries, launching Zoe and Police Chief Pete Adams into the investigation of a burglary ring targeting the area’s vulnerable senior citizens.
Zoe—in spite of Pete’s objections—takes it upon herself to act as protection detail after the con men, disguised as water company employees, set their sights on Zoe’s beloved former landlady. It’s a decision that eventually puts Zoe in harm’s way.
With Zoe already recovering from one close call, Pete must race against time to stop the crime ring—and a dangerous killer—before they strike again.
Review: When I saw this was the 6th book in this series, I went WTF. I read books 2-4. How in the heck did I miss book 5? Grrr

I love this series because its set in Pennsylvania in a made up county which should be somewhere near where I live. That was a huge draw for this series for me.

This story involves some elderly people being conned. This adds to the feeling of authenticity. I love Zoe and Pete.

I love Annette's writing. She's created characters where the mystery always feels personal to Zoe and company.

I think this series just keeps getting better.
