Overview

In the sixth title in the Woods Cop Mystery series, another suspenseful who-done-it finds Grady Service with an unexpectedly complex, truly rotten, and important case on his hands. This time tainted eggs are showing up in caviar, and Service must expose a ring of corruption in state government and perhaps within his own beloved Department of Natural Resources, one that could lead him all the way to the top. Making enemies at every level of the state, Service rousts out the people on the take. Can he get to the source of the contaminated eggs and prove it? Pitting corporate greed against the health of the general public isn’t something Service takes lightly. He doesn’t rest until there has been full exposure in a case that takes him from the wilds of the Upper Peninsula to the jungles of the state capital, into the maw of the Ukrainian mafia in New York City and onto distant beaches of Central America. Death Roe once again confirms Joseph Heywood’s stature as a master crime writer who is the equal of Michael Connelly, Robert Crais, and Robert Parker—but one with a keen eye for the lives of men and women, both good and bad, who are at home in the wilderness.
