Crow's Landing: A Virgil Cain Mystery based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
Sometimes a protagonist has to go looking for trouble’ other times trouble has a way of finding the protagonist. In the case of Virgil Cain, trouble usually finds him - - in spades. In a previous entry in the series, he was arrested for murder and had to break out of jail to exonerate himself. In the current novel, he just goes fishing, and lands in a heap of difficulties. When he anchored in the Hudson River, the last thing Virgil expected to reel in was a stainless steel cylinder containing 100 pounds of pure cocaine. But that’s what happened when he lifted his anchor and the cylinder was attached. As a result, he becomes involved with a crooked policeman who seizes the cylinder and Cain’s boat, the original owner of the contraband who threw it overboard seven years previous, and others, all seeking to make a score by taking possession of the dope. It is a well-drawn tale, with little real mystery but plenty of plot and action. A well-written story, tightly developed, “Crow’s Landing” is the second in the series, and definitely warrants a third. Recommended.
