    I Also Recommend:

    Lake Effect is smart, precise, detailed personal-type of highly human murder mystery fiction. Seems the names have been changed to protect the regional guilty. Lake Superior makes this perfect in all of its action both on, over and off the water.

    I am a recent first time reader of Mike Savage. I wonder what took me so long!

    Just a timely 20th century book with excellent plot with possible/probable "real life" views of local individuals on both sides of local law enforcement and greed. Awesome development of characters with interlinked backgrounds. Emotions, love, rain, wind, water and speed ... palatable. Hard book to put down but an easy read all the same.

    Lake Effect is an action read "for the rest of us"... who are not so into James Bond, but otherwise empathize or personally relate to what we feel of honor, fast vehicles (land, water air), work related stress and responsibilities including co-workers, "supervisors or snooper-visors", and being lonely/overworked even love and loves lost type interests.

    Then, each of the 51 chapters starts off with a famous quote from a variety of authors pertinent to the plot... from local news papers to Proverbs or Shakespeare ... and Robt. Pirsig Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance. I related well to the extras therein.

    All this happens right in my own back yard... the wonderful Northern Wisconsin eastern Minnesota along, over and IN Lake Superior. How can one not appreciate a book dedicated to "Cornucopia"... the author's own childhood back yard!

    Mike I have heard, also has a new "Detective Davecki" 100 chapter mystery in the works... of Alphonse "Dave" Davecki, Police Detective who is a real human in many ways.... nag him to get it printed. How could this not be his labor of love!

    Savage grabs the reader in the beginning of Lake Effect with his loving description of Lake Superior and holds him throughout the book with a fast paced, and often humorous, tale. He takes a story line that pushes the limits, stealing water form Lake Superior, and makes it sound so credible by creating a cast of characters who are in some cases caricatures. Most of them are people who the reader feels like they know personally, especially the protagonist, Dave Davecki. Davecki is the type of character that the reader would like to have a cup of coffee with, or maybe tea. Overall a nice read.
