Editorial Reviews

Review

When Warren Jarvis comes with a case, there isn't anything Greg and Jill McKenzie won't do for him. He brings with him a friend who goes by various names due to the nature of her work with the Air Force's Office of Special Investigations. She has a family link to a ninety year old murder case involving the Marathon Motor Works located near downtown Nashville. Though the plant isn t operating anymore, a bunch of old records have been found hidden in a wall and they seem to indicate that a former employee suspected of embezzlement was actually innocent. At least, that is what they believe and the family involved would like to see the records themselves but the man who had them is now missing. She wants to hire them to find the missing man and the records. Greg and Jill agree and begin to work the case by starting at the most obvious point. They start with the construction company and easily find out where the man lives and what he drives. That angle, and working the familial connection, sends them off into a case that eludes nearly ever attempt they make. While the fourth in a series, this novel could easily be read as an enjoyable stand alone cozy mystery. Greg and Jill do make the occasional reference to earlier events but for the most part are constantly working the current case. Character development is nil as these are characters that series readers have long since become accustomed to and don't expect major changes. Instead the focus is on the mystery and it is not one easily solved with numerous twists and turns along the way. The result is another excellent cozy style mystery from Chester Campbell and another enjoyable read. --Kevin R. Tipple, Blogger News Network

Private investigators Jill and Greg McKenzie (Secret of the Scroll; Designed To Kill; Deadly Illusions) are hired to find some missing papers that may prove that Arthur Liggett did not embezzle a large amount of money from Marathon Motor Works in 1914. Details about the only car maker south of the Mason-Dixon line in the early days of the automobile industry and background information about Nashville enrich the search. --Library Journal

This fourth mystery by the author is especially entertaining for those of us in the silver/no hair set. Retired Air Force OSI investigator Greg McKenzie and his partner/wife Jill become involved in a case that spans a current mysterious disappearance of old evidence in a cold case stretching back to the turn of the 1900s. Hired by a woman working for a clandestine government agency and an Air Force Colonel working for the Defense Intelligence Agency who have gone to bat for her grandfather whose ancestor was falsely accused of stealing money from the Marathon Car Company. Exonerating papers are found in a wall of the plant while it goes under refurbishment and the man who contacts the grandfather turns up dead. Greg McKenzie s inner dialogue and the interactions with Jill give the reader the thoughts of seasoned professional senior citizens. The story is fun to follow and the dialogue is realistic. We rated this mystery four hearts. --Bob Spear, Heartland Reviews

About the Author

I got bitten by the writing bug when I started work as a newspaperreporter while a journalism student at the University of Tennessee. That was more than 60 years ago. Since then I've worked as a freelancewriter, a magazine editor, a political speechwriter, an advertisingcopywriter, a public relations writer and an association manager. Istarted writing novels after retirement. I write the Greg McKenziemysteries featuring a retired Air Force OSI agent. The first, SECRET OFTHE 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,  titledTHE MARATHON MURDERS (2008), involves the long-defunct Marathon MotorWorks in Nashville, and the fifth is A SPORTING MURDER (2010), dealingwith professional sports in Nashville. My second mystery series followsthe adventures of Nashville PI Sid Chance. The first book, titled THESUREST POISON (2009), deals with a toxic chemical spill in a suburbancounty.
