Overview

Ray Crusafi, private investigator, heads to Oklahoma but never makes it. Halfway there, he takes supposedly simple job investigating a shooting in tiny Eris, Missouri. Someone wants the local grocery store out of business, and will do whatever it takes.

However, Ray's presence escalates things. The store owner's son is killed, and the sheriff suspects Ray of murder.

Ray's wife joins him, but she is seen as the perfect opportunity, and she is kidnapped. Then the ultimatum comes; his wife will die in 24 hours unless he personally levels the grocery store to the ground.

To save his wife, and wrap up the case, he has only one day to discover who is behind it all.

Meet the Author

Action and adventure are what you’d expect in one of Nathan Pennington’s stories. He’s an introvert (and no, that’s not a bad thing); that leads him to frequently uses internal dialog and the quirky thoughts of his characters show through in his writing.

A writer of both novels and short stories, Nathan draws on a wide range of experiences to make his stories realistic and exciting. If asked, his best source for writing material comes from merely observing what is really happening all around him on a daily basis.

Nathan currently lives with his wife and daughter in Waukesha, Wisconsin.

    I was looking forward to the second Ray Crusafi mystery after reading the first and reviewing it.  I was not disappointed and look forward to the further adventures of this off-beat private detective.  

    Ray is on the way to pick up his wife after the first story of the series and falls into a new case where it looks like he will be able to pick up some easy money and be able to spend some time with his wife as he admits to her some of his past that he has kept secret.  But the case gets in the way and it gets crazy.  The reader will be guessing right along with Ray as to what is going and who is pulling the strings.

    An excellent and fun read.  Hopefully Mr. Pennington will continue the series as Ray is a fun detective and the writing is excellent.

    Fast paced action detective

    I believe this is the second Ray Crusafi Mystery, but the first one I have read.
    I would like to read the first and learn more about Ray.
    Ray Crusafi is driving across to wear his wife has been staying with family. He is nervous about telling his wife about his past and how she will handle it. He pulls off into a little town of Eris to get something to eat at the grocery store.
    But he walks into the store being robbed and gunman shooting up the store.
    The grocery store owner seeing that he was P.I. hired him to find out who was doing this to drive him out of business. He thinks it is the Mayor.
    Thier are many suspects that Ray finds. His wife meets him i n town to find out what Ray has to say.
    Ray finds himself in a lot of trouble and keeps getting hurt. It is nonstop action as Ray tries to find the bad guys who want the grocery store to go out of business.
    It kept me guessing the whole time. The story was given to me from Libarything in exchange of honest review.
