BOOK REVIEW: DEAD BOOGIE
A short cut home on an abandoned road led to a big surprise for a Forest Service employee when he found a wrecked car in the road with three dead women inside. Doc Osborne got a call from Chief Law Farris to help her out by finding Ray Pratt, his neighbor local fishing guide, and get to the scene of the accident. Lew needed Doc to help identify the victims and have Ray begin taking pictures of the scene.
Much to Doc's surprise when he arrived at the scene he recognized Peg Gamin, a local resident, with a rather shady reputation as one of the victims. He also realized the deaths were from gun shot wounds and not caused by the wreck. Peg had been Ray's friend for years and he was shattered at the news and determined to find the killer.
It is soon discovered that Peg not only was an heiress but also had a son. The three women were connected with their once a week Karaoke outings as well as the fact that they had all been patients of a plastic surgeon. Peg was in the process of filing suit against the surgeon malpractice.
This is the seventh in the Loon Lake series and Victoria Houston brings back many of the characters from previous books as well as a couple of new ones. Even if you don't like to fish you might wish you did after reading a Loon Lake mystery.
