Dead Mans Mistress å An investigation of missing property takes a darker turn near Lake Superior in Dead Man’s Mistress the next mystery in David Housewright’s award winning McKenzie seriesLouise Wykoff is arguably the most recognizable woman living in Minnesota known for her presence in over one hundred paintings by the late and brilliant Randolph McInnis Louise known better as “That Wyk. McKenzie the self deprecating Minnesota detective whose dry humor and irreverent attitude is often off putting to those he encounters is asked to locate three missing paintings by a deceased Minnesota artist His investigation takes him to the lovely town of Grand Marais on Lake Superior and to Duluth Minneapolis and several locations in Canada The settings are part of the draw of this series and the author manages to include food and beer bars restaurants and jazz clubs into the story Betty's Pies is an Iron Range landmark that has appeared in several books in the seriesOne of the authors strengths is character development There are a few reappearing characters such as Nina and LT but long time friend Bobby Dunston is absent from this story The many characters were easy to keep straight but parts of the plot were confusing I thought the client was one person and it turned out to be someone else I don't know if he purposely created a smoke screen there or if I just missed the information about who was actually his client The story has good pacing plenty of tension and surprises to keep the reader engaged This is one of my favorite mystery series The Minnesota settings are familiar and I love McKenzie who is a wealthy ex cop who will investigate problems for his friends though he is not a licensed private investigator as everyone is uick to remind himI think this is one of the best In the series Sometimes the asides in which McKenzie talks to himself can become annoying but they didn't seem excessive in this book45 stars Review Ò PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Ñ David Housewright

David Housewright Ñ 2 Review Casional unlicensed private investigator agrees to look into the theft As he investigates following clues that appear far too straightforward he finds himself on the wrong side of the bars wondering if the trail might be deeper and darker than he’s been led to believe Hours away from St Paul deep in the nature of Grand Marais the truth seems murkier and deadlier than usual. Although one of the perpetrators was obvious I enjoyed the main character He wasn't over written he wasn't hard bitten angry or a wise guy He was pretty down to earth and a decent human beingWhen a gallery curator calls McKenzie to find 3 previously unknown paintings of her friend a well recognized artist's model given to the model by the artist just before his death that have been stolen a circus ensuesThe model the artist's wife the collector to whom she sold the original collection to all claim ownership In addition a well known maker of film documentaries his over zealous annoying daughter zoom in to make a documentary on the lives of the artist the model the paintings which is being financed by the collectorTo add to the confusion a local young man the town's hottie is found dead by McKenzie after being identified as the seller of items stolen from the model's homeOn top of all that there is a tough nasty cop and a group of nasty local thugs who are responsible for a rash of burglaries Things become interesting when a ransom is offered for the paintings but no one can provide McKenzie with the dimensions or accurately describe the paintings Even interesting is the illegal auction of the purported paintings that turn out to be forgeriesThis was a pretty interesting book it held my interest I liked McKenzie but not the majority of the other characters
