This is a clever book which reveals its story in a series of threads following different characters and then weaves them together to help the reader understand the full picture about the events around a mass murder. There are a few twists thrown in to keep you alert.
The plot is good and the action well paced and not too violent but the best bit of this book is the wry and amusing writing style and the character of Beck himself. This helps to raise the book a little above the usual suspense thriller and to give the book its own unique voice. it is nice to see a happily married hero rather than the usual maverick and also to find that his wife is as accomplished as Beck.
Very enjoyable, well plotted and amusing. A good read.

I could see Beth was trying to make some sense of all this, too. "I s'pose Hells Angels is the closest we've got to any organized crime syndicate," I said. "But if it was a biker gang, the BCA should find evidence of motorcycles all over the place. I didn't see any tracks around that house this morning. Still...you never know." I was out of ideas. Maybe some solid police work would give me new options to consider soon. In the meantime, while ruthless killers roamed loose in or around Ottawa County, I would sleep very lightly indeed.'
James Becker, Attorney-at-law, called "Beck" for short, came back from a smoldering meth cooking lab where 23 men had been killed. Beck had been invited to go to the scene by his friend Ottawa County Chief Deputy Sheriff, Doug Gunderson, also known as "Gunner.Read more ›
