This is an intriguing thriller
Two men dressed for combat invade the home of former cop turned millionaire Rushmore McKenzie in St. Anthony, Minnesota. They take him to Libbie, South Dakota. Befuddled by the abduction, Mac is taken aback when he learns the townsfolk believe he is a con artist; whose scheme threatens to bankrupt Libbie.
However, he persuades the city council and law enforcement they arrested the wrong man. Apparently someone stole his identity to pull off the scam. Instead of suing for false arrest, he offers to help catch the crook; somewhat out of altruism but more so because city council member Tracie Blake is pretty. As he digs deep into the con, Mac concludes the plot needed insider help to make it happen, but his questioning of townsfolk angers the residents who reject his theory as they believe no local would do such a thing.
This is an intriguing thriller as the townsfolk reject the hero's assertion that the con artist pulled off the scam with insider information; most of the locals prefer to believe Mac is the miscreant. The investigation he is doing expands as he also looks into a double homicide. The Taking of Libbie, SD is a fast-paced exciting tale that will hook readers from the starting snatch to the twisting finish and seek McKenzie's backlist (see Jelly's Gold and Tin City).

I mustve dozed off, because a finger poked me sore back from the cage. I jumped and backed away. Jack was peering at me through the bars. I pressed my back on the far corner of the cage. Jack opened the door, reaching his hand in. I tryed to press farther back. "No.....stay away," i whispered. He grabed my waist anyway and took me out. He looked at the red mark on my back and patted my head. "You learned your lesson, didnt you?" I wanted to scream let me go but he grabed my head and forced me to nod. <p>He put me back in the cage and locked it tightly. I shrank away to the far corner and he left me alone. i ran my fingers along the red mark on my back from jack and winced. It stung. So i left it alone and sat down on the cotten ball. Why did he want me here in the first place? Revenge? I sighed and layed on my side. And i dozed off. <p> i woke up to see a toothpast cap filled with milk and a bit of bannana, watermelon and cookie. I ate it all and finished off the milk. Then I used the penny to mesure myself. 5 inches and 2 c. I was growing just as jack said. To be continued........
