Abstract:

"Murder She Wrote meets Fargo in the nineteenth installment of the "engaging" (Alfred Hitchcock's Mystery Magazine), critically acclaimed Loon Lake mystery series. "My wife and the CEO of my company just tried to run over me." Doc Osborne is startled by the unexpected words tumbling out of the mouth of a fellow AA member, a recently remarried lead accountant for an under-construction luxury fly fishing lodge preserve. Doc tries to alert Chief Lew Ferris, but she is tied up with law enforcement teams across the state searching for thieves who have been cutting down and stealing hundreds of thousands of precious birch trees from public and private property across northern Wisconsin. But it's too late. With two men dead, evidence of lakeshore properties being stolen from elderly owners, and an attempted sexual assault, short-handed Chief Ferris deputizes Doc and his skilled tracker neighbor to help with the investigation. Just another summer in Loon Lake"--

Doc Osborne is startled when Chuck Pelletier, a fellow AA member and a lead accountant for an under-construction luxury fly fishing lodge preserve, claims his wife and his boss tried to run him over. Chief Lew Ferris is tied up with law enforcement teams across the state searching for thieves who have been cutting down and stealing hundreds of thousands of precious birch trees from public and private property across northern Wisconsin. When Pelletier is found dead, Chief Ferris deputizes Doc to help with the investigation-- and things get complicated. -- adapted from publisher info
