    Historical Thriller

    Mary MacDougall and her cousin are strong and likeable characters caught up in a plot that twists, turns and surprises readers till the last page. That alone would be enough reason to read 'Mary MacDougall and the Gitchee Gumee Murders.' The meticulously-researched historic setting makes the mystery even more fun to read. D.R. Martin seems to have done almost as much research as Herman Melville did for 'Moby Dick.' The difference is that D.R.Martin knows how to use only the most fascinating tidbits, whereas Melville boringly) included everything he knew about whales and whaling. Steven King's success with e-stories prompted him to release more e-fiction. Perhaps hefty sales of this first Mary MacDougall mystery will move D.R. Martin to produce a sequel soon.
