    Copyright October 2010
    Goodwill towards men isn't the Holiday Theme when Greg and Jill McKenzie are hired to investigate rumors that something isn't kosher about a deal in the works to bring an NBA Basketball team to Nashville. When Greg goes off to meet an informant it is only to find the young man in question shot to death. This won't be the only blow to his investigation because the whole case gets explosive including his Jeep.
    Greg is a retired Air Force investigator who works now as a licensed Private Investigator along with Jill his wife. Their tenacity and combined brain power are sure to win out over the crooks and wise guys trying to stop them. But between all the usual suspects, the unusual suspects, the unexpected suspects AND a felon who was released from Federal Prison without notifying Greg that this person was out? It's going to be a real roller coaster ride till he fingers the bad guy and solves the case.
    This is book five in the Greg McKenzie Mystery series and I'm new to it. I won't be new anymore as I intend to read the backlist and all the new books to come.
    FTC Full Disclosure: This book was sent to me by the author in hopes I would review it.

    Jill and Greg McKenzie, owners of McKenzie Investigations, have been hired by an attorney for a group of Nashville Predators NHL hockey fans to investigate rumors there are efforts to bring an NBA basketball team to Nashville. Greg receives a phone call from a young man from Germany that he has important information about this, but when Greg goes to their meeting place, he finds the young man dead. Greg begins a parallel investigation into this death which ties into what look to be ominous mechanisms of the financiers behind the basketball deal. To make matters worse, he learns a man he put in prison years before has been released and is in the area. When Greg and Jill are almost poisoned and their jeep blown up, they're not sure whether the culprit is the felon or has connections to the basketball financiers. But they continue onward, more determined than ever to solve these two cases and find the murderer.

    This series is cozy mystery's answer to Dashiell Hammett's Thin Man series. Greg and Jill McKenzie are a charming couple who complement one another and work well together. Their interactions are heartwarming and refreshing and a nice bonus to the story. The plot moves at a fast pace, offering a mystery readers will be challenged to solve.
