A Great Loon Lake Mystery
A boater makes a gruesome discovery when his houseboat gets stuck on the body of a young girl who was last seen partying hard by night and working by day for the Chamber of Commerce. This, along with the bloody murder of a recent widow puts the kibosh on Doc Osborne¿s plans to relax and fish with his ladylove, Police Chief Lew Ferris. Deputized once again, Doc discovers the DeeDee Kurlander was a very ambitious woman with a harassment suit pending and the goal to become a trophy wife. Doc and Lew once again enlist Ray Pradt, an unlikely lothario with a penchant for wearing a stuffed fish on his cap who becomes enamored with a very attractive gun specialist. Once again Ms. Houston fills her novel with quirky and entertaining characters who delight the reader and keep the humor flowing steadily until the gripping conclusion. There are enough twists and turns to keep the conclusion a surprise, yet the reader never feels tricked or misled. The strongest element of the Loon Lake Mystery series is Houston¿s creation of characters who are a delight to follow. New readers and long-time fans will find much to like in this novel, as Houston never fails to create novels full of wit, humor, and suspense.
