    Frenzy is Fantastic

    How could a sleepy little town like Loon Lake have such gruesome murders.
    For a person who doesn't fish (although I am married to an avid Flyfisherman)and who generally shies way from bloody thriller books and movies, I love the Loon Lake Series. It is a perfect mix of suspense, forensics and deduction. And, just enough romantic comedy (will they, will they not) to hook you into the relationship between Doc and Lew. But in the end, it is the whacky, lovable characters that keep bringing me back to the Wisconsin north country. Anyone have lake property to sell? I'd open up a bookstore and stock it with Victoria Houston novels.

    A great, fun read

    For retired Wisconsin dentist Paul ¿Doc¿ Osborne, the perfect day is being able to practice his fly fishing techniques with the lovely Loon Lake Police Chief Lewellyn ¿Lew¿ Ferris. Their peaceful day though, is shattered by the discovery of a teenaged girl suffering from a drug overdose. It seems that the small village of Loon Lake is being overrun by visitors, first for a million-dollar-prize fishing tournament and then by a neighboring town¿s Harley-Davidson motorcycle rally. Accompanying the tourists are an influx of Ecstasy drug trafficking and a fencing operation of stolen motorcycle parts. With these crimes overwhelming Lew¿s four-man department she again deputizes Doc and asks him to participate in an undercover operation that will tax all of his skills. Namely, he will be posing as a biker looking to upgrade his Harley. Learning how to just ride a motorcycle would be demanding enough, but soon Doc also has to contend with his daughter, whose husband is suffering from a possible mid-life crisis, and also with the unwelcome attentions of a predatory widow. As the investigation heats up Doc realizes that there are those who will do anything to make money, including salting the lake with fish in the fishing tournament. He realizes that he is placing his life, as well as the lives of those he loves, at risk. Houston has once created a wonderfully atmospheric and amusing mystery with a plot that keeps the reader riveted to the page. The pace moves along swiftly and is filled with complications that are all neatly tied up in the end. She also demonstrates great talent in creating characters that are both engaging and realistic, from outdoorsman Ray Pradt, who lives in a trailer decorated as a fish, to a woman who has transformed herself from a dainty beauty into a tattoo-covered biker chick. As someone who has taken a motorcycle safety training course, dropped the bike, then prayed that someone else would crash so that I didn¿t feel like the only moron, Houston¿s description of Doc¿s first experience learning how to ride is dead on. Yet even if you¿re not particularly interested in either motorcycles or fishing, Houston¿s humor, characters, and fascinating plot make this a winning read. DEAD FRENZY, the fourth in the Loon Lake fishing series, is the best yet and I eagerly anticipate the fifth.

    Dead Frenzy

    This is the fourth in the Loon Lake series. Again, the characters have been done in such a way, you really like them and want to know what's happening with them. This book was nicely complex with a couple of situations that had to be solved.

    Houston does it again.

    DEAD FRENZY is the 4th Loon Lake Fishing mystery series by Victoria Houston staring retired, widowed dentist Doc Osborn & Police Chief Lew Ferris. Life is anything but boring in Loon Lake. Things get kind of crazy when a fishing tournament & a biker convention convene at the same time. Lots of people have descended on the town including those who used to live and work there; not all are there for simple fun. Ray, Doc¿s unorthodox friend and neighbor, is hired as a bodyguard for one of the visiting VIPs; he might get his chance of a fishing TV show yet. Once Osborne is deputized, they have their hands full trying to make sure there is no cheating during the million dollar tournament & dealing with the possibility of drug deals with the bikers. The paramedics have had to rescue a few kids with similar symptoms. Has Ecstacy found its way to the Loon Lake area? Then they have to figure out why bikes are being sold cheaply. Doc gets quite involved when he goes undercover as a biker-once he learns how to ride one. (He discovers he likes riding a bike.) On top of all that, someone is making obscene phone calls from his office to his women patients, & one of Doc¿s daughters, Erin, is having trouble with her marriage. She is especially worried because her husband bought one of the bikes. Osborn¿s neighbor, Brenda Anderle, has the hots for him, but Chief Ferris would be his first choice. He¿s really not sure how to tell her he isn¿t interested. Last but not least, Doc would like to solve an old murder case he feels the wrong person was convicted of. If you haven¿t read the other books in the series, don¿t worry you don¿t have to read them in order. You don't have to be a fishing fan to enjoy this series.

    Great, like the rest in the series.

    This writer has another great book in the series. This is a murder-mystery-detective type of book, mixed in with the great outdoors.
