Editorial Reviews

Toby Bromberg
Although the identity of the killer may be a bit obvious to hard core mystery fans, Dead Angler is a delightful read. Lew Ferris is a fascinating character, but it is Paul Osborne who holds the reader's interest. We can't help but cheer him on as he exorcises his own demons to get a new grip on life.

    I Also Recommend:

    The perfect Wisconsin mystery!

    Having lived in Wisconsin all my life I first read this book when I was station overseas and feeling homesick. This book cured me. From popular locations to the often eccentric cast of characters, everything painted a perfect picture of the northwoods. I do not typically read mysteries but I found the plot full of suspense that kept me engrossed until the very end. I enjoyed the lack of grizzly murder details that have turned me off from other mysteries while the plot/investigation was very original. This book is great for anyone who has ever visited northen Wisconsin. And you don't even have to like fishing to enjoy the book.

    New author emerges as the 'Tony Hillerman of the North Woods'

    Although I am not a fishing enthusiast, and this mystery is marketed to devotees of the sport, I enjoyed this book immensely. I would recommend it unreservedly to anyone who appreciates unusual, gifted characterizations and precise,elegant descriptions. The author makes the reader want to experience first-hand the depth and presence of the North Woods, and meet the eminently likeable residents of Loon Lake. Ray Pradt, fishing guide extraordinaire, is a man of many talents and one of the quirkest characters you'll run across. A terrific and suspenseful read. You'll be pining for the next in this series.

    Great Book!

    Fun book to read. Good story. No sex, not too much language. I'd have paid actual money for this one, so thanks for letting me have it free!

    Enjoyable regional mystery

    Sixty-three years old Paul Osborne is a retired dentist who wants to learn how to fly-fish. Loon Lake (population 2654) Chief of Police Lewellyn Ferris enjoys fly-fishing at night as a stress reliever from her job. Through the machinations of mutual friends, Paul and Lewellyn go fly-fishing together. The duo enjoys their evening together until the former dentist discovers the body of a dead woman in the river. Paul recognizes the victim as Meredith Marshall, a former patient of his. He believes someone killed her because all her gold fillings were removed. The subsequent autopsy proves Paul¿s theory is right. <P>Lewellyn deputizes Paul because she believes his knowledge of the deceased and her friends, relatives, and acquaintances will prove invaluable in the investigation. Paul enjoys his new job, taking it very seriously. An added bonus to Paul is to work with Lew, a woman he is beginning to love. Lew and Paul work well together as if they have been partners for years rather than days. Soon, they find an abundance of suspects who gain financially with Meredith dead. <P>There are colorful and eccentric charcaters populating DEAD ANGLER with most of them involved with fishing. Readers who prefer their fish either in a restaurant or supermarket exclusively will still enjoy this delightful mystery because Victoria Houston hooks her audience from start to finish. The Great lakes make a wonderful backdrop to fine charcaters and a delightful story line. The well-plotted story line contains many viable suspects while retaining a level of believability that leave readers wondering who the killer actually is. This regional mystery has a powerfully tasty (somewhat fishy) taste to it. <P>Harriet Klausner

    Dead Angler is the first book in the Loon Lake Fishing Mystery.

    Dead Angler is the first book in the Loon Lake Fishing Mystery. The new book that is coming out soon is Dead Insider. I received Dead Insider to read and review and as I was looking for a little information from it I found that Last year I had gotten Dead Angler. So I decided to read the first book first.

    I enjoyed Dead Angler. I like the characters in it and look forward to reading Dead Insider next to see what is going on in Loon Lake now. The suspense of the murder kept me guessing.

    Paul Osborne is a retired dentist. He is a widower with two grown married daughters. He is bored with his life and makes some changes when he was cleaning his garage. He decided to try fly fishing again. He was supposed to meet a fly fisherman who would take him fishing again and show him how to do fly fish.

    Lewellyn is a strong woman not afraid to be different. She is the Sheriff of Loon Lake. Loves fly fishing. Is willing to teach Paul about fly fishing. She starts by taken him fishing at night.

    When Paul falls into the river he puts his hands down to get up and finds a arm in the water. He hurries and finds Lew. After they get the body out they figure that she drowned while fishing. Then Doc notices that he knows her and that all her gold fillings are taken out while dead. So it looks like murder.

    This book was written a few years ago. The only thing that dates it for me are party phone lines and pay phones. No cells. I hardly remember party lines.

    Ray is his next door neighbor and friend. Ray smoked some weed, not all obeying the law. Especially fishing in private lakes and fishing limits. He is likeable. He can tract and is fishing guide &amp; grave digger.

    There are a lot of suspects and a close community. It makes you care about the victim and want the guilty party to pay.

    Good, but quite a few errors.

    The book was really good and an interesting read. It did have a bit of spelling errors, though. I did enjoy the book so the errors didnt bother me too much.

    Don't bother

    The story isn't too bad, but the editing stinks, and the writing is blah.

    Enjoyable read

    There were times it was difficult to keep track of the 'players', otherwise well written. Somewhat disappointed in how it ended, left with the feeling that some things were left undone. Look forward to reading another work of this writer.

    Good Story, Mediocre Writing

    Not a book to hold me spellbound, but I did finish it. Misspellings and other errors lowered my opinion of the quality of the book.
