Six-Pound Walleye

Overview

"It's late winter and police detective Jake Hines is beginning to feel the effects of light deprivation: not only in the edginess of the citizens of Rutherford, Minnesota, but also in the escalating battle he's having with his girl-friend, Trudy, a battle that seems to make no sense at all. Sitting in headquarters thinking about these matters may not make them go away, but it does offer Jake a chance to examine some of his feelings. Then two emergency calls come in at the same time."

Overview

"It's late winter and police detective Jake Hines is beginning to feel the effects of light deprivation: not only in the edginess of the citizens of Rutherford, Minnesota, but also in the escalating battle he's having with his girl-friend, Trudy, a battle that seems to make no sense at all. Sitting in headquarters thinking about these matters may not make them go away, but it does offer Jake a chance to examine some of his feelings. Then two emergency calls come in at the same time." "A child has been critically injured in his own front yard and something approaching the proportions of an old-fashioned gang rumble has broken out in the parking lot of Central High. As the department mobilizes to deal with these two events, Jake is told that the little boy is dead and that the emergency room doctor attributes the death to a gunshot wound. The witnesses all state, however, that there was no gun at the scene, and no one heard a shot. To complicate matters, one of the ringleaders in the school brawl was the chief's son and the first boy he hit has gone to the hospital...."--BOOK JACKET.

Editorial Reviews

I Love A Mystery
a page-turner . . . a dandy, with a well-developed plot, sharp characterization, and a fluid style.
Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
To describe Gunn's (Five Card Stud, etc.) fourth Hines novel as outstanding may be an understatement. Its prose is crisp as a cracker. On a typical cold, gray February day in Rutherford, Minn., everybody seems to be in a bad mood. Chief of Detectives Jake Hines's lover has inexplicably blown up at him and walked out. Hines's boss, Chief McCafferty, is forced to plan a retirement party for an officer no one likes. The department is in the throes of a computerization beset by bugs. And suddenly normally peaceful Rutherford High explodes into a donnybrook among members of the hockey team in the school parking lot that sends one boy to the hospital. The assailant is McCafferty's son. But the worst is yet to come: a small boy, standing in his front yard, waiting for the school bus, surrounded by children and adults, is shot dead without anyone hearing the shot. Hines, still new to his post as chief of detectives, takes charge of the investigations with admirable and plausible efficiency. The crime is a heinous one and, as with all the other threads in Gunn's complex procedural, it is dramatized realistically, with intelligence and insight. There's humor and humanity here, but nothing cute or cozy. All the minor characters are well realized and credibly motivated. Especially impressive is the "minor" matter of Jake's domestic flare-up, which is bound to make many readers squirm with recognition. Gunn's latest is a hard-to-put-down thriller an excellent piece of craftsmanship. Agent, Jane Chelius. (June 15) Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.

    superb police procedural

    By the time it is February in Minnesota, people begin to feel stir crazy from being cooped indoors by freezing weather. The Rutherford Police Department hates the month because people behave out of character and do ugly things. <P>This season two nasty incidents occur simultaneously. A riot explodes at the high school and most folks blame the son of the police chief for inciting it. Across town, a young boy surrounded by other students and parents waits for the school bus to arrive. He suddenly keels over with no visible reason. Police Detective Jake Hines investigates and realizes someone shot the lad. No one heard a sound or saw the boy bleed. He quickly links the riot to the child's death, placing himself in danger. <P>This series has a down home country feel even if the tales are set in Minnesota. This superb police procedural stars a protagonist with appeal to all readers. The story line comes from recent headlines while leaving the older audience to wonder what is wrong with today's youth (they conveniently forget that their parents asked the same question about them). The social message is cleverly constructed within the plot so that fans will not feel as if Elizabeth Gunn is preaching to them. <P>Harriet Klausner
