Formula of Deception by Carrie Stuart Parks

Book Description:  After the murder of her twin sister, Murphy Anderson changed her name and appearance and moved to Kodiak, Alaska, to avoid the press and publicity. But when local authorities discover she’s an artist and request her help in drawing a dying man’s memories, she unintentionally ends up in the limelight again—and back in the killer’s crosshairs.
The deathbed confessions of an Alaskan hunter have Murphy drawing the five bodies he discovered on remote Ruuwaq Island ten years ago. But what investigators find has them mystified. Evidence suggests that the bodies were deliberately destroyed, and what they uncover in an abandoned Quonset hut from World War II only brings more questions.

My Thoughts:  To me Carrie Stuart Parks is the Alfred Hitchcock of books.  I try to never read her stories at night.  
Murphy Anderson has changed her name and her appearance and moved to Kodiak, Alaska since someone murdered her twin sister.  She has avoided press and publicity until the local authorities find out that she is artist and request her help to draw a dying man's memories.
Well, this puts Murphy right smack in the limelight and the killer is on her trail once more.
But this is a most unusual case.  Once Murphy has drawn the five bodies that the Alaskan hunter found on the remote Ruuwaq island there are only questions.
This quite an interesting read with tons of suspense.  And at times there are more questions than answers in this case.  It's quite a challenge for the armchair detective to figure out what this case is all about and how it is all connected.
