Death at Gills Rock by Patricia Skalka is a murder mystery set in the Door County fishing village of Gills Rock. The tragic deaths of three World War II veterans by carbon monoxide poisoning is investigated by Door County sheriff Dave Cubiak. He discovers that the men's veneer of success and respectability hides a trail of lies and betrayal that stems from a single, desperate act of treachery and eventually spreads a web of deceit across the peninsula. In a dark, moody tale that spans more than half a century, Cubiak encounters a host of suspects with motives for murder. Amid broken dreams, corruption, and loss, he sorts out the truth.
