Overview
It's mid-July in Loon Lake, and Police Chief Lewellyn Ferris has her hands full with the discovery of the skeletal remains of a missing bank executive and the murder of graduate student. To complicate matters, both victims were discovered on a hidden river deep in the national forest--a place that just so happens to be a dangerous wolf rendezvous site.
Lew recruits her close friend and fellow flyfisherman, retired dentist "Doc" Osborne, for his forensic and interrogation skills. But Doc has his own set of problems to worry about: his grandson is hospitalized with a grave illness, and now Lew seems to be getting too interested in the father of the murdered student--a well-to-do widower who is teaching her the Japanese art of tenkara flyfishing.

Smalltown police chief Lewellyn “Lew” Ferris has to deal with the same problems faced by urban communities, though with much fewer resources, as shown in Houston’s pleasing 14th mystery set in Loon Lake, Wis. (after 2013’s Dead Insider). A particularly potent strain of marijuana has found its way to Loon Lake, but a more serious problem is the discovery of banker Peter Corbin’s body in the Pine River in nearby Nicolet National Forest. Then a distraught father, Jake Barber, implores Lew to help find his college-age son, Liam, who disappeared in the area while fly-fishing a small stream. Lew can count on boyfriend Paul Osborne for help, while bumbling mayor Ed Pecore and bossy FBI agent Alan Strickland complicate her investigation. Houston knows both her territory and her characters well, and she uses both to good effect in advancing her nicely executed plot. Agent: Martha Millard, Martha Millard Agency. (June)
