James W. Ziskin Synopsis: No Stone Unturned is the second Ellie Stone mystery by James W. Ziskin. A dead girl in the woods. Three little oil spots on the dirt road. A soft drink bottle cap in the shallow grave. And a young reporter, armed with nothing but a camera. Evening is falling on a wet, gray, autumn day in upstate New York. Ellie Stone, 24-year-old reporter for a small local daily, stands at a crossroads in her career and in her life. Alone in the world, battling her own problems, Ellie is ready to give up and return to New York a failure. Then, dispatch comes over the police scanner. A hunter, tramping through a muddy wood north of the small town of New Holland, has tripped over the body of a 21-year-old society girl half-buried in the leaves. Ellie is the first reporter on the scene. The investigation provides a rare opportunity to rescue her drowning career, but all leads seem to die on the vine, until Ellie takes a daring chance that unleashes unintended chaos. Wading through a voyeuristic tangle of small-town secrets, she makes some desperate enemies, who want her off the case. Even dead.
