Jed McCain is moving to Coronado Beach to start a hopefully quieter life than that of an NYPD Homicide detective. His respite is short lived. He has just hit town when he is thrown into a maelstrom. Turns out the killer is wanted in New York City and there is a connection between Jed and himself. What is his motive? The clues lie in the poems left with the victim’s bodies.
“He couldn’t believe his good fortune. Browsing through the online version of each of the realty companies was like shopping online for his victims.” The crimes, serially executed, are all coldly calculated, and yet they are driven by passion and by a misguided sense of revenge.
Enter Jed McCain, who retired at forty-one from the police force, and is now offered the position of homicide detective at Coronado Beach, Florida. He must solve this case and solve it fast, not only to save his new job, but to protect the woman he’s interested in. “Everything he’s doing is designed to inflict as much damage as possible; to hurt you and discredit me.”
I had read Mr Cronin's previous series, McNamara, with Song of the Mockingbird, Ruby's Story, and Letting Go. I have not yet read the 4th in the series - Joe and the Governor, but intend to do so. That series was good old-fashioned Southern style story telling at its best.
This new series, features a totally new departure from his previous series - the crime/thriller genre.
McCain is a 20 year veteran of the NYC Police Dept, who takes early retirement, and finds another position as a detective in a smallish Florida beach town near Daytona. He has not even arrived in town, hauling a trailer of all his worldly goods, when he is confronted with a homicide.
Before day 2 even begins, the Chief of the dept abruptly retires, McCain is appointed as replacement chief of people he has not yet met, and he has a second murder case. lt looks like has a serial killer on his hands.
Now we are off to the races.
As each of these characters come into the story they enrich and lend depth to the storyline. As is often the case, Cronin weaves several stories within this story that leaves the reader wanting more. As a result I believe this book will be appealing to a cross section of readership.
I am looking forward to future Jed McCain mysteries in what I hope to be a series.
