Overview

Retired Air Force OSI agent Greg McKenzie never imagined a 90-year-old car could cause such destruction, until he took on a case involving Nashville's defunct Marathon Motor Works. When Pis Greg and his wife Jill look into a potential murder case so cold it's frigid, they face a present day conspiracy filled with chicanery in circles of power and chaos created by a frenzied killer. A stash of yellowed records found during restoration of the abandoned Marathon buildings vanishes as the construction forman who had them is murdered. The McKenzies' clients believe the records would shed light on the fate of a Marathon officer who disappeared in 1914. He was accused of embezzelment and later found dead. More murders occur, appearing aimed at suppressing the secret behind the missing records. It's a tale of greed, misplaced pride, family loyalty and the unpredictable violence of an irrational mind.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Private investigators Jill and Greg McKenzie (Secret of the Scroll; Designed To Kill; Deadly Illusions) are hired to find some missing papers that may prove that Arthur Liggett did not embezzle a large amount of money from Marathon Motor Works in 1914. Details about the only car maker south of the Mason-Dixon line in the early days of the automobile industry and background information about Nashville enrich the search.

Greg and Jill McKenzie, owners of McKenzie Investigations, feel obligated to help when Colonel Warren Jarvis asks them to take on the case of his good friend Kelli Kane. Kelli needs the McKenzies to help clear the name of her great-great-grandfather Sydney Liggett. Back in 1914 he was accused of embezzling funds from Marathon Motor Works. Pierce Bradley, a construction supervisor at the former Marathon Motors building, found papers belonging to Sydney Liggett which would have exonerated him, but he disappeared before the papers could be turned over to the DA. Bradley called Kelli's grandfather and set up a meeting to hand over the papers. Unfortunately Bradley can't be located now. Not long after the McKenzies being to investigate, Bradley's body is found submerged in a lake. The papers he claimed he found are still missing. To make matters worse, more people connected to the investigate end up dead. There aren't many clues to go on, but the McKenzies are committed to do everything they can to find those papers. Can they find them before more people die? Can they find them without putting themselves in danger? I love this series. Jill and Greg are such lovable characters. The plot is well constructed, and the setting is terrific. Such a great cozy mystery series. The author has done a fabulous job of setting up the story and creating characters that are believable. I enjoyed learning about the Marathon cars as well. I highly recommend this book and series. I found myself having trouble putting it down.
