“Rushmore McKenzie is sweet talked by his girlfriend's daughter, Erica, into helping her father, Jason Truhler, who is being blackmailed by persons unknown. Someone has photographs of Jason lying unconscious in bed; nearby, a young girl, with her throat slashed, lies in a spreading pool of blood. McKenzie travels on Highway 61 from the Twin Cities to the Chalet Motel in Thunder Bay, Ontario, where the girl was stabbed. Jason is an unscrupulous pedophile who can't be trusted and McKenzie soon finds himself ensnared in a complex web involving drug trafficking, arson and internet prostitution. At the center of this web is a nineteen-year-old prostitute who has information for which everyone is willing to kill in order to obtain.
I started out liking this book more than 3 stars. Toward the end there was way too much discussion about who should shoot who amd why they should or shouldn't and entirely too much lying by eveyone. The story became bogged down in useless dialog. Overall, it had the beginnings of a great storyline and I do intend to read more of this authors work.”

“Not his best book, but very entertaining. as with most authoors under contract, david is having trouble, it seems, finding fresh and invigorating storylines. I love Mac McKenzie, but he needs more trouble and woe. Okay, I'm a writer too, and at this point somebody needs to die off...somebody really important. Why? To shock me and make me mad.
Since I can't give half starts I'm giving it 3. I liked it. I'd easily go 3 1/2.
