I really enjoyed this debut mystery by Bryan Gruley. The book takes place in Michigan's Upper Peninsula, a place filled with beauty, strange and colorful characters and an underlying sense of foreboding.
Gus Carpenter is the editor of the local paper and is surprised to hear the snowmobile of his hockey coach has shown up on the shore of Starvation Lake. Coach had died ten years ago on a different lake. Gus gets involved with a reopened investigation that leads to murder and the uncovering of long held secret. A great character driven mystery with a great sense of place and many twists and turns.
