Booklist Monthly Selections - #1 May 2001

Gunn's fourth entry in the Jake Hines series finds the lieutenant tackling three highly sensitive cases while trying to stay warm in eternally cold Rutherford, Minnesota. Hines, who heads the investigative section of the Rutherford Police Department, must discover who shot and killed a seven-year-old boy in front of several witnesses. Another case concerns a huge fight at a local high school in which the chief's son was a participant. Jake's team of investigators, one of the delights of this series, must work together to find the motives and culprits. The mixed-race Jake, who was raised in foster homes, is a believable, extremely likable hero whose early exposure to prejudice and hard times seems to have enhanced his integrity and respect for others. Thanks to Gunn's skill at developing characters, readers will fall not only for Jake but for all the ancillary characters as well, from feisty Rosie Doyle to taciturn Bo Dooley. An uncharacteristically flimsy subplot involving Jake's fight with his girlfriend is all that keeps this entry from being Gunn's best work. Still, neither fans nor first-timers will be disappointed.

Small-town Minnesota police detective Jake Hines (Five Card Stud) investigates the shooting death of a small boy and a parking-lot free-for-all at the high school. Complications in the first incident involve lack of a gun and gunshots, while problems in the second arise from participation of the chief's son. For all collections.

To describe Gunn's (Five Card Stud, etc.) fourth Hines novel as outstanding may be an understatement. Its prose is crisp as a cracker. On a typical cold, gray February day in Rutherford, Minn., everybody seems to be in a bad mood. Chief of Detectives Jake Hines's lover has inexplicably blown up at him and walked out. Hines's boss, Chief McCafferty, is forced to plan a retirement party for an officer no one likes. The department is in the throes of a computerization beset by bugs. And suddenly normally peaceful Rutherford High explodes into a donnybrook among members of the hockey team in the school parking lot that sends one boy to the hospital. The assailant is McCafferty's son. But the worst is yet to come: a small boy, standing in his front yard, waiting for the school bus, surrounded by children and adults, is shot dead without anyone hearing the shot. Hines, still new to his post as chief of detectives, takes charge of the investigations with admirable and plausible efficiency. The crime is a heinous one and, as with all the other threads in Gunn's complex procedural, it is dramatized realistically, with intelligence and insight. There's humor and humanity here, but nothing cute or cozy. All the minor characters are well realized and credibly motivated. Especially impressive is the "minor" matter of Jake's domestic flare-up, which is bound to make many readers squirm with recognition. Gunn's latest is a hard-to-put-down thriller an excellent piece of craftsmanship. Agent, Jane Chelius. (June 15) Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
