Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: "Once a police detective in St. Paul, Minnesota, Rushmore McKenzie has become not only an unlikely millionaire, but an occasional unlicensed private investigator, doing favors for friends and people in need. When his stepdaughter Erica asks him for just such a favor, McKenzie doesn't have it in him to refuse. Even though it sounds like a very bad idea right from the start. The father of Malcolm Harris, a college friend of Erica's, was found murdered a year ago in a park in New Brighton, a town just outside the Twin Cities. With no real clues and all the obvious suspects with concrete alibis, the case has long since gone cold. As McKenzie begins poking around, he soon discovers another unsolved murder that's tangentially related to this one. And all connections seem to lead back to a group of friends the victim was close with. But all McKenzie has is a series of odd, even suspicious, coincidences--until someone decides to make it all that more serious and personal"--

    Housewright fans, rejoice: the latest Rushmore McKenzie novel is here. The unlicensed PI (he used to be a cop until he quit so he could collect a big reward on a criminal he apprehended) is looking into the death of a man who was stabbed in the head about a year ago. The victim—follow along carefully now—was the father of Rushmore's girlfriend's daughter's friend. Hospital records suggest the victim's widow had been physically abused, but she claims, persuasively, that she didn't murder the man. So who did, and why? Is Rushmore putting his own family at risk by digging into the man's death? The McKenzie novels are solidly plotted mysteries with, overall, a rather light tone—not comic mysteries, by any means, but a long way from noir. Housewright is one of those writers whose name on the cover guarantees readers a good time, and he definitely doesn't disappoint this time. Copyright 2017 Booklist Reviews.
