Campbell provides red herrings, plenty of action, and a smooth narrative. It makes a nice change from foul-mouthed detectives and gritty settings. --Gumshoe Reviews
Just like the plot, they (McKenzies) are straight forward in a most refreshing way, which leaves the darker twists and turns to the plot without allowing the main characters to get in the way. --The Deepening --This text refers to the Kindle Edition edition.
I got bitten by the writing bug when I started work as a newspaper reporter while a journalism student at the University of Tennessee. That was more than 60 years ago. Since then I've worked as a freelance writer, a magazine editor, a political speechwriter, an advertising copywriter, a public relations writer and an association manager. I started writing novels after retirement. I write the Greg McKenzie mysteries featuring a retired Air Force OSI agent. The first, SECRET OF THE SCROLL (2002), takes place in Nashville and Israel. The second, DESIGNED TO KILL (2004), is set around Pensacola, FL, and the third, DEADLY ILLUSIONS (2005), wanders about Nashville. The fourth, titled THE MARATHON MURDERS (2008), involves the long-defunct Marathon Motor Works in Nashville, and the fifth is A SPORTING MURDER (2010), dealing with professional sports in Nashville. My second mystery series follows the adventures of Nashville PI Sid Chance. The first book, titled THE SUREST POISON (2009), deals with a toxic chemical spill in a suburban county.
This was a very good book. As a couple Greg McKenzie and his wife make good detectives. The story flows along quickly and is a good example of a modern action thriller. Read morePublished 5 months ago by Kindle Customer

The 5th and final book in the Greg McKenzie Mysteries. I was sad when starting this book, as I knew it was the last book in this series. I love the stories of Jill and Greg. Read morePublished 7 months ago by srl

An enjoyable mystery
Lots of twists and turns to the plot and disclosure of the murderer. A real who done it.
