DRAWING BLOOD by Deirdre Verne (A Sketch in Crime #2) DRAWING BLOOD is the sequel to DRAWING CONCLUSIONS, in the A Sketch in Crime mystery series. Although a cozy, DRAWING BLOOD works in several deeper issues. Protagonist CeCe Prentice, descendant of the first harbour master of Cold Spring Harbor, Long Island, is an environmentalist and Freegan, as are her three housemates and several friends. A Freegan abhors environmental impact and waste, so recycles and reuses. CeCe and her friends are considered dumpster-divers. Her working relationship with the manager of the town recycling center is pressured when he inexplicably disappears. Fortunately CeCe's artistic talent for quick portrait sketches is essential to the investigation.
