Slipknot


Slipknot

Linda Greenlaw

3 out of 5


Almost a 4, but parts of this book turned more into a boating and sailing for dummies instructional manual.

Jane Bunker has decided that she is done with her high pressure career as a homicide detective in Miami and traded it all in for Green Haven, Maine. Being an insurance investigator has got to be easier. That is until her showing up for her first day of work and she comes across the body of the towns troublesome drunk.

The town tries to brush it off as an accident, but with the back of his skull smashed in, Jane’s detective brain takes over and starts trying to piece the whole mystery together.

Unfortunately, she starts to ask one too many questions and finds herself in quite a harrowing situation. One way or another she is going to find the answer. And it may end up hurting the apparently good people of this close knit community.

Aha! Linda Greenlaw! Since she lives on (or actually off) the Down East coast of Maine, of course I've read a couple of her books, but I think this is her first fiction. Even with the reservations, I'll have to check it out.
