Jake Hines, chief of detectives in Rutherford, Minnesota, is just trying to get through his day off: he was roped into going goose hunting, but he'd rather be warm at home. The discovery of a dead body nearby is not the way Jake wants to end his day, especially when it turns out the dead man is a local farmer who had been embroiled in a battle with other members of his family over the potential sale of some of their land. But was he murdered by a member of his own family, or by someone else entirely? Jake is a likable narrator, a guy with a good head on his shoulders and a no-nonsense approach to his job, and Gunn's latest is plenty intricate enough to keep Jake and the reader guessing. Perhaps not as well known as it ought to be, the Jake Hines series has been around since 1997's Triple Play and always delivers a satisfying mystery built around an engaging protagonist. Fans of Steven F. Havill's Bill Gastner novels will want to meet Jake. Copyright 2012 Booklist Reviews.

Thanksgiving plans are put on hold when a local farmer dies, perhaps because of a land dispute. This is the ninth case for the Minnesota police detective (after The Ten-Mile Trials). [See Prepub Alert, 10/08/12.]

In Gunn's solid ninth Jake Hines mystery (after 2010's The Ten Mile Trials), Det. Jake Hines and his Rutherford, Minn., police team find themselves busier than ever, despite the approaching Thanksgiving holiday, after a murdered man turns out to be none other than Owen Kester, Minnesotan farming royalty. Jake must juggle his personal life with the family feud that appears to be brewing over at the Kesters' farm. While the Kesters aren't entirely forthcoming to the police, Jake tries to ingratiate himself and learn more about the farm dispute. In opposition to some of his brothers, Owen objected to selling the farm to sand miners, even though the lucrative sale would have earned the family millions. To make matters worse, Owen's death marks the beginning of more violence. Gunn's fast-paced, workmanlike plot will please fans of her earlier works, and Jake's wry insights bring warmth to the frigid, if generic, Minnesota setting. Agent: Jane Chelius, Jane Chelius Literary Agency. (Apr.)
