I am always on the watch for David Housewright's new books and this one was great. A fast start and lots of twists and turns. I highly recommend this book.

Holy crap, where did you come from David Housewright? I mean, I must have been in a coma for the first 33 years of my life to miss your sweet butt. Being an avid reader is a humbling experience, because every time you open a door, you have six more doors waiting for you. And when I hear someone say, “Well, that particular author must not be that famous if I haven’t heard of him” makes me want to shake my head and sigh, because that kind of comment doesn’t even really warrant a response. As for me, I feel like I need to hang my head in shame, because this is the tenth book in the Rushmore McKenzie series, and I had no idea what I was missing. THE LAST KIND WORD is not a kind novel, but it’s a damn good one. The hard-boiled voice made me want to stand up and cheer; I felt like I was picking grit and grime out of my teeth; the plotting proved twitchy as it clipped along at a steady pace; the pages flew by like I was hitchhiking on I-35; the small Minnesota towns filled the pages to the point that I felt like I had visited Minnesota on more than one occasion (other than the Minneapolis – Saint Paul International Airport I have not); and Rushmore McKenzie is one damn fine character. Even though this is his story, the other characters helped fill the pages to the point that they were bursting at the seams. I must say that Josie was probably one of my favorites, and that I developed a somewhat unhealthy crush for her over the course of the novel, but I blame the author for his excellent character portrayal, not any limited shortcomings of my own. And with a smile on my face, I’ll find myself cursing Mr. Housewright, since there are nine other books in this series that I now feel I need to read sometime before I die, and between now and my deathbed, I’m sure there’ll be even more installments. The butthead. If you’re looking for a new hard-boiled series, or you’re already a McKenzie series reader, I have a feeling you’ll find yourself enjoying this one. I received this book for free through NetGalley. Robert Downs Author of Falling Immortality: Casey Holden, Private Investigator
