    • Abstract:
      Summary: "Once a police detective in St. Paul, Minnesota, Rushmore McKenzie has become not only an unlikely millionaire, but an occasional unlicensed private investigator, doing favors for friends and people in need. When his stepdaughter Erica asks him for just such a favor, McKenzie doesn't have it in him to refuse. Even though it sounds like a very bad idea right from the start. The father of Malcolm Harris, a college friend of Erica's, was found murdered a year ago in a park in New Brighton, a town just outside the Twin Cities. With no real clues and all the obvious suspects with concrete alibis, the case has long since gone cold. As McKenzie begins poking around, he soon discovers another unsolved murder that's tangentially related to this one. And all connections seem to lead back to a group of friends the victim was close with. But all McKenzie has is a series of odd, even suspicious, coincidences--until someone decides to make it all that more serious and personal"-- Provided by publisher.

Booklist Reviews 2017 May #1

Housewright fans, rejoice: the latest Rushmore McKenzie novel is here. The unlicensed PI (he used to be a cop until he quit so he could collect a big reward on a criminal he apprehended) is looking into the death of a man who was stabbed in the head about a year ago. The victim—follow along carefully now—was the father of Rushmore's girlfriend's daughter's friend. Hospital records suggest the victim's widow had been physically abused, but she claims, persuasively, that she didn't murder the man. So who did, and why? Is Rushmore putting his own family at risk by digging into the man's death? The McKenzie novels are solidly plotted mysteries with, overall, a rather light tone—not comic mysteries, by any means, but a long way from noir. Housewright is one of those writers whose name on the cover guarantees readers a good time, and he definitely doesn't disappoint this time. Copyright 2017 Booklist Reviews.

Last seen in Stealing the Countess, Rushmore (Mac) McKenzie, reluctant millionaire and occasional investigator, has a bad feeling when his stepdaughter asks him to look into the unsolved murder of a college friend's father. Fans of Steve Hamilton and William Kent Krueger should be right at home with Mac. [Library marketing.]—ACT

Unlicensed PI Rushmore "Mac" McKenzie tackles perhaps his most complex case yet in Edgar-winner Housewright's witty 14th Minnesota-based mystery (after 2016's Stealing the Countess). Mac should have known from the outset that this was going to be a challenge. First, it's a cold case—the stabbing murder of Frank Harris, who worked for human resources in a large furniture company, in a Minneapolis suburb a year earlier. Next, the person bringing it to Mac—the victim's college-age son, Malcolm—is beside himself with rage and grief. Frank's widow says she's comfortable with her husband's murder remaining unsolved, but Malcolm needs closure and he needs it now. Once Mac begins to investigate, he finds little the local police missed. Once he starts asking questions, however, the intrepid former cop learns of another unsolved murder that's possibly related. But can he unearth the connection? Housewright is such a pro at plot and character development that it's nearly impossible to put this entry down. Agent: Alison Picard, Alison J. Picard Agency.
