Otherwise she leaves police work to local cop Roelke McKenna. In the newest installment, Heritage of Darkness, Chloe and Roelke collaborate to solve a murder that takes place at Vesterheim Norwegian-American Museum.
Chloe and Roelke are becoming more than friends. A romantic relationship has presented challenges, however. The two have very little in common.
So I was intrigued when Milwaukee radio host (and discerning reader) Mitch Teich asked me about the professional attributes Chloe and Roelke share.
Mitch is quite right. Every museum curator is a bit of a sleuth.

In order to understand who might desperately want the bowl, she considers all the other reasons it might be important. She must explore what's known about the piece in order to discover what has not yet been revealed.
So I guess Chloe and Roelke have more in common than it may initially appear. That's good, because I have a lot more crimes in mind for these two investigators to solve.
