It’s a tranquil October morning in northwest lower Michigan, a rural paradise of cherry orchards, blue lakes, and sandy shorelines. The serenity of the day — and the season — is shattered when an elderly woman walking her dogs along the beach stumbles upon the bodies of a brutally murdered couple. Sheriff Ray Elkins returns from his debut in the bestselling “Summer People” to track down the elusive killer of a vivacious and spirited young teacher. His search takes him into the dark side of an elite private school — and into his own long-forgotten past. As Elkins unravels the mystery, the hunter becomes the hunted and one intrigue leads to another in this page-turner.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another good read!

After reading the first book in this series, “Summer People”, I couldn’t wait to read this next book in the series. As much as I liked the other one I think this book was much better than the first. For me, I liked it better because there was more detective work. You almost felt like you were there trying to solve the case along with Ray and his partner Sue.
I want to mention that again there was very little swearing and no sex scenes. I know some people don’t like those things in their books so I like to mention it. There are also no gory details of the murders either.
There are some formatting issues again – two words written as one & paragraph issues. I guess when I really like a book it isn’t as annoying to me but be aware that you will find some of this. Thankfully it is not too often.
The characters were very well developed and in this book there were enough suspects again so that you really didn’t know who the murderer was until the end of the story. Both books can be read as stand alone books and can be read out of order. There seemed to be no sequence of events that would have left you wondering what they were talking about.
I see that someone thought the story was too slow. There are all different kind of murder mysteries and I like all of them. No, you were not sitting on the edge of your seat but it was still a good story. If you are expecting a thriller then this one probably won’t do it for you. This author is more in the line of a good basic murder mystery.
I also saw that someone didn’t like the book because Ray likes expensive wine & cheese. Who cares? Why would you not like a book because of that. Are cops only supposed to like burgers & beer?
I am not sure where the other reviewer came away with the impression that at every opportunity the author was bashing guns or talking about the intellect of gun owners. Perhaps he had a different version of the book than I did? Also, why would the sheriff be talking about his own gun at all? I read cop books all the time & I don’t recall any other cop talking about their guns. One would assume that Ray had a gun. It wasn’t until the end of the story that he even had the occasion to use it.
The fact that the prosecutor mentions sarcastically that people who back the sales of AK-47s (and other assault guns) are just a-okay does not seem out of place. These people see the all the horrors of what happens when you have psychos who have access to a gun. It is also not in your face every five minutes, it was one passing comment. Perhaps the author is against people having assault rifles (and how would I know) but he certainly wasn’t beating you over the head with it. It was one comment. If you just want a good basic murder mystery with likable characters then you will enjoy this book. I can’t wait to read the third book.
5.0 out of 5 stars A very awesome book cover

Lake Michigan, MI. Nora Jennings (widow, psychology) was out walking her 2 dogs Prince Hal (Welsh terrier), & Falstaff (older chocolate Labrador).
Sheriff Ray Elkins & Sheriff Deputy Sue Lawrence came to Nora’s house.
It was not a social visit.
The 3 of them went to the same spot Nora was at yesterday.
There were 2 naked bodies a man & a woman.
Dr. Dyskin (semi-retired pathologist) examined the 2 corpses.
Dr. Ian Warrington (Leiston headmaster, PhD, professor) ID Dr. Ashleigh Allen (Professor, PhD, biology, Leiston) & David Dowd (Ashleigh friend, PhD student social psychology, Leiston) as the murdered victims.
Sheriff Elkins went to interview Dr. Warrington.
A Tony Davis (married, PhD, mathematics, Stanford) name came up.
Alan Quertermous (math teacher) & Arnie Vedder (son, mental health problems) names were also added to the list of suspects.
Sarah James (30+, Leiston U campus director, administrative services) organized the get together before for Ashleigh funeral.
The room was packed, she had lots of friends.
Sheriff Elkins came to pay his respects to friends, but also to keep & eye out for who attended.
Father Murphy presided. Then Ian, & Gwendolyn Howard (great Aunt) spoke on her behalf.
Sheriff Elkins was piecing more of the murder mystery together.
Devonshire Cottage was on fire.
Chief Bernie Rathman (FD) & Mike Ogden (30+, FD arson investigator) were at the crime scene.
A body had been found.
It was Janet Medford.
Ashleigh had one lived in the other duplex.
Will Sheriff Elkins & Sheriff Deputy Lawrence solve the murder mystery cases?
I did not receive any type of compensation for reading & reviewing this book. While I receive free books from publishers & authors, I am under no obligation to write a positive review. Only an honest one.
A very awesome book cover, great font & writing style. A very well written murder mystery book. It was very easy for me to read/follow from start/finish & never a dull moment. There were no grammar/typo errors, nor any repetitive or out of line sequence sentences. Lots of exciting scenarios, with several twists/turns & a great set of unique characters to keep track of. This could also make another great murder movie, or better yet a mini TV series. There is no doubt in my mind this is a very easy rating of 5 stars.
4.0 out of 5 stars An interesting police procedural

An interesting police procedural. This one was more fast paced. The character development was good and the plot intriguing. There’s a sub-plot going on that ties in with the main story line . Overall good book.
