Descriptions du produit

Présentation de l'éditeur

Winter is starting to loosen its grip on Cedar County along the shores of northern Lake Michigan. The first hints of green are becoming visible on the edges of the receding snowpack. On the inland lakes, the layers of ice that started forming in late November and December are slowly subsiding.

The search for morel mushrooms is still three or four weeks off. But this year there is other treasure to hunt. Vincent Fox, an octogenarian, has self-published a book, Al Capone’s Michigan: The Secret Lost Treasure. Following the descriptions in the book, some of the locals are beginning to scour the beaches with shovels and metal detectors. When Fox suddenly goes missing, Sheriff Ray Elkins and Detective Sue Lawrence are confronted by a complex web of fact and fiction to sort through, and along the way they discover new information to a decades old unsolved murder.

Praise for Aaron Stander’s mysteries:

This is a well-crafted, cerebral police procedural that should easily satisfy fans who’ve enjoyed reading about Elkins in other books. —Lansing State Journal

Stander once again demonstrates his deep understanding of the geographic area and total fabric of northern Michigan. And he successfully melds this within a natural ability to tell a good yarn. —I Love a Mystery Newsletter

With a protagonist as deep and textured as Ray Elkins and a backdrop as varied as this resort community, Stander has created a high-quality mystery series. —Foreword Magazine

Stander’s Cedar County with its haunting sand dunes, woodlands, and Lake Michigan—alternately raging and serene—shape and shade every character on the canvas. —Northern Express

HASH(0x8d0fbd5c) étoiles sur 5 An OK read, but getting repetitive 2 septembre 2012
Par Aunt Peggy - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
This novel - 6th in the series? - is fine, but I just don't feel as though there's much build or growth in Mr. Stander's writing. I continue to read the books, enjoy the setting, but not love the stories, and I continue to feel that he relies very heavily on coincidence.

I found it very hard to believe that so many things happening during the short time period that this book covers (4 or 5 weeks?) would relate directly back to a tragedy that took place over 20 years ago. What are the chances that all of these people would suddenly converge on this small place again (or if they haven't left, that they'd start 'acting out') at precisely the same time? Sometimes it was so unreal that it completely took me out of the story.

And, like one of the earliest of this series, we once again spend a lot of time following an attractive, intelligent, private woman who has come 'back home' to Northern Michigan, from the west, to avenge an old injustice. I know there are only 9 or 10 plot lines and reasons for murder in the world, but for the author to repeat this theme with so many similar details was disappointing.

Then there are all of the little character details that get used as filler in every book. I know that Ray will order gourmet food from Zingerman's at least once in the book. I know that he'll throw together at least one hasty meal which will consist merely of good cheese, nice bread, maybe some olives or fancy sausage on the side, and a glass of wine. I know that one sleepless evening, when he's exhausted but wired he'll wind down by writing in his journal. I know that at some point, some woman will attempt to get him into bed for comfort sex. I know that he'll probably teach someone how to cook fish in some middle chapter. I know that he'll be talked into kayaking whether he wants to go or not, even if the weather is horrible. I know that as soon as anyone drives off the main highway, they'll be onto a 'two track' (for the information of anyone who isn't familiar with Northern Michigan, there ARE actually many roads and streets which are not highways, and also not dirt trails!) I know that at some point in the book Ray is likely to be injured in some way which will have him appear vulnerable and dependent while trusty Sue Lawrence takes over the investigation for a while. I know that some aged, infirm, or otherwise needy local person or family will pop up in a side story to tug at Ray's heartstrings and show his compassionate side.

Can you say 'formulaic'?

Plus, why is Ray's clever and reliable sidekick, Sue Lawrence so OFTEN referred to by her full name? Does Mr. Stander not think that the reader will remember who 'Sue' is from one chapter to the next? That is just plain bizarre.

I've given this series my best shot. I'm not sure that I'll be back.

(And what's up with using the same title that Louise Penny used only two years ago?)

I love the Northwest Michigan stories...great characterizations...too bad that the lack of adequate proofreading and editing for grammatical and spelling errors keeps the book from getting a five-star rating.

I really enjoy Aaron Stander, you feel like you could live the town he portrays in his books. The characters feel comfortable and believable, like you know them. Being from Michigan and owning property both down state and up north is an added bonus. I recommend his books be read in order as you get to know the primary charachters and they grow from book to book.

Highly recommended series.

HASH(0x8d77ae1c) étoiles sur 5 Most boring book I've ever read 20 mai 2014
Par Dog Mom - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I'm astounded at all these five-star reviews. Did we read the same book? Nothing much happens - lots, lots, LOTS of description, lots of conversations and all the "crimes" were basically solved with Deux ex Machina. Seriously if I want to learn about kayaking, I'll take a class. Same with the cooking! Ugh - who cares? Additionally, the paragraphs were only indented one space making it hard to read. I only got through the story by skimming the last half.

as with every book he has written...great! Just enough hints to never give the end away. Makes you feel part of the investigation. I feel like part of the community from reading the series.
