Assassination in the Glade: A Viking Witch Cozy Mystery

Cate Martin

Ingrid Torfa lives two lives. In one she struggles to get by as a book illustrator in the tiny town of Runde on the North Shore of Lake Superior in Minnesota.

But in the other, she serves as a Norse witch, a volva, in the town of Villmark, where the descendants of a lost colony of Vikings hides inside a pocket dimension far from the reach of the modern world.

Usually, balancing the needs of those two worlds dominate her time and energy.

But this time, Villmark offers her trouble enough to consume her. Young men keep disappearing in the fields south of Villmark, a place of no danger in the past. The council tells her to leave it to the guardians known as the Thors.

Then one of the Thors turns up with mixed up memories. And a missing brother.

Now not even the council can stop Ingrid from getting to the bottom of this latest mystery. Because her own Thorbjorn just might be next.
