CHANNILLO
Last End
By Caren Gussoff Sumption

Series Description:

When the Electric Snowflake Suzio Psychedelic Family Circus made their last camp at the end of the '77 season, no one thought of it, literally, as the Last End. But since then, the performers became townies, then parents -- and turned Last End into Washington state's most unique day trip destination...and a great place to grow up and then leave.

Only Naomi Salt, daughter of the late fortune-teller, Madam Sugar Salt, has stayed in her hometown, as proprietor of the Last End Coffee Cabaret and Tea House. As her 20th high school reunion approaches, Naomi thinks her biggest problem will be enduring the pity of her overwhelmingly successful classmates. But when Adam Armington, Internet billionaire son of the strongman turns up dead Homecoming night, Naomi may be the only one who can bridge the town's generations -- and secrets. Can she find the killer before another classmate meets their last end?
