Book Description

Emily and Stan Remington’s maiden voyage in their newly inherited, second-hand RV goes awry when a body falls off the top of their vehicle. The retired small town police officer and her husband, a retired history professor, find themselves at the center of a murder investigation involving a politician, a corporate executive, and a hippie priest. Emily butts heads with the local sheriff as their search takes them from a backwoods cabin in Wisconsin’s scenic Door County to the Bishop’s Chancery in Madison to an abandoned island in the infamous Death’s Door Straits.

5.0 out of 5 stars Complex, well written and researched March 18, 2012
By Carter
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I loved this mystery! I rarely read mysteries, but since this one takes place in locations I am very familiar with, I had to try it!
I was not disappointed. The story is complex, well researched, and well written. I hope to see more installments from this author in the future, as the primary character has a lot to offer!

5.0 out of 5 stars Historical allusions add depth to real good read January 25, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
On the Road to Death's Door opens with a bang, then slows down a bit to establish the laconic feel of an unhurried vacation day. But the characters need a vacation from their vacation after things go horribly awry.

The hero, retired police office Emily Remington, finds herself embroiled in the investigation of the murder of a longtime friend in a resort area far from home. Williams' choice to weave into her story a fictional university campus bombing inspired by a real-life tragedy adds emotional power for anyone who remembers the events at the University of Wisconsin forty years ago. But even if you don't know the history, Death's Door keeps your interest with a host of suspects, including a presidential hopeful and powerful men of the cloth, and a smart, independent lead character who unravels the twisty agendas of all the players.

The book is impeccably edited and, despite its subject matter, never takes itself too seriously.

4.0 out of 5 stars On the Road to Murder January 18, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a winning first mystery novel. Emily Remington, a retired Michigan police officer, and her husband Stan begin a road trip to Boston via Door County Wisconsin in a 32-foot Winnebago inherited from Emily's aunt. Among the first sights they see is a dead body rolling off the roof of their RV. Mixing church and state and local politics, the story reaches back into the sixties and student demonstrations at UW Madison. And more bodies are added, of course. The author has a nice way with dialogue and an eye for setting. The next location looks to be Boston. I plan to be on the road with them.

4.0 out of 5 stars On the road to success! January 14, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Just finished reading "On the Road to Death's Door" and I can't wait for the next book! For me, the mark of a good book is it's ability to pull the reader into the story and this one does. The characters were relatable and the plot had plenty of twists to keep me guessing "Who done it" until the end. Great first book M.J. Williams! You've got a new fan. Please hurry with your next "On The Road To" book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great story-telling! March 1, 2012
By Anna17
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
"On the Road to Death's Door" is a fast-paced, enjoyable read! The writing flows easily with a great mix between vivid flashbacks and the unfolding of current events. The story nicely illustrates the connection between the historical, regional, political, and cultural factors that interweave to create the fabric of our lives.

The character of Emily reminds me of perhaps a strong female character from a Jodi Picoult novel. I also really enjoy the charming and quirky professor, Stan. I really think this would make a great little movie or the start of a neat TV mini-series!

4.0 out of 5 stars This is a real winner July 18, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I am really enjoying reading this novel. As a fulltime RVer I liked the connection to an RV and as an avid mystery reader, I'm having a good time trying to figure out "whodunit". Hay, Authors, hurry up and right another one. I can sure see this book turning into a series with Emily Remington traveling and solving murders along the way. Good read.
