Booklist Reviews 2007 June #1

*Starred Review* Rutherford, Minnesota, cop Jake Hines should be happy as a clam. He is expecting his first child with his much-loved wife, Trudy; his job as a police captain is going well; and his team of detectives is shaping up nicely. But there are clouds on his happy horizon: the imminent arrival of his child has reopened old wounds from when Jake was abandoned at birth; he has started having a recurring nightmare about deadly wolves; and his current cases aren't moving toward solutions. Focusing on his work to stave off anxiety about his personal life, Jake tries to figure out how to catch a mugger whose attacks are escalating in violence; find the perpetrator of a major credit-card fraud; discover who attacked one of his best detectives; and solve the brutal murder of a college coed. What's most appealing about this book is neither the clues nor the cases but the interactions between the characters—from the humorous banter and chatter among the detectives to Jake's conversations with his very human-sounding boss to Trudy and Jake's loving, "safe within a happy marriage" teasing. Gunn is a master at mixing straight-ahead crime-solving with multitextured domestic drama. A fine book in a fine series that belongs in every good mystery collection.
