Overview
In the midst of a catastrophic August rainstorm, a grisly discovery shatters the serenity of a summer evening in northern Wisconsin. Moving quickly to prevent a panic among tourists, Loon Lake Police Chief Lewellyn Ferris enlists the forensic and interrogation skills of her close friend and fellow fly fisherman, the retired dentist "Doc" Osborne. Within hours of launching their investigation, they find themselves faced with a national media circus as Loon Lake becomes the focus of a murderous scenario that links the murder to the race for the U.S. Senate by a woman who is heir to a Northwoods fortune and other, less savory, family traditions.

In the meantime, Doc Osborne's eldest daughter, Mallory, enters into a relationship that may put her life at risk--unless her father and Chief Ferris can find the killer stalking the residents of Loon Lake.

By the end of Houston’s slight but enjoyable 13th mystery set in Loon Lake, Wis. (after 2012’s Dead Tease), practically everyone in the small fishing town seems to have pitched in on a murder investigation. Lauren Crowell, an enterprising campaign manager for Jane Ericsson, who is running for Senate, at first thinks the candidate’s past demons are to blame for her absence at a key fundraiser. The discovery of dismembered human remains, however, suggests that the truth could be far worse. Police chief Llewelyn “Lew” Ferris, needing all hands on deck, brings on her retired dentist beau, Dr. Paul “Doc” Osborne, to stand in for the out-of-town coroner, while Lew’s visiting daughter, Mallory, helps handle the press. Meanwhile, kind-hearted local fisherman Ray Pradt scours the surrounding woods for clues. Houston’s plot takes too long to get started, but once the case is finally underway, Lew makes for a satisfyingly quick-witted sleuth. Agent: Martha Millard, the Martha Millard Agency. (June)
