Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
Professor Roy Nelson, whose wife recently ended up "missing" after a plane crash, becomes obsessed with the disappearance of his elderly summer neighbor, a Finnish American gentleman who worked in Intelligence during World War II. Readers know that someone flung this man off the Mackinac bridge, but not why, and after several of Roy's limp attempts at investigating, they do not much care. Wooden dialog and mundane prose only underscore a lackadaisical plot and flat characterization. Locals may find something of interest here, but others can look elsewhere.

The plot is original and well thought out. The location, both in Michigan and Hawaii, is full of local description and color. However, the writing is stiff and action scenes poorly executed. There is no build-up of suspense and murder scenes hold no more excitement than scenes decribing dinner.

This book is a very interesting story about a professor whose wife turns up dead. It has a lot of local flavor since the murder took place off the Mackinac Bridge.
