A week-long tropical storm floods the depressed city bringing more devastation as well as a new misery: The headless, handless body of a young woman in the Old Iron Bog.
Between the gruesome murder and an old factory suspiciously burning down, Detective Frank Nagler begins to believe that incarcerated Charlie Adams, the city's famous serial killer, may have fostered a copycat killer. Determined to find the truth, he follows the case that leads into unexpected places.

There’s a good story buried in these pages.
The author has a good grasp of corruption in city politics, greed and power.
But unfortunately, he misses an opportunity by telling us way to much and showing too little. The best piece of writing is about halfway through, a moving flashback to Nagler’s teen lover and wife, then her death a few years later. This passage should have been in Chapter Two, so we’d care about Nagler, the main character.
The real mystery is whatever happened to Lauren [THE] FOX, the urban renewal crusader? But there is no real tension-building around the issue. The author forgets about her for long chapters, then abruptly she becomes the focus again, only to be more or less forgotten until the end.
Because the tenses in the narrative are scrambled, the passage of time is vague throughout the story. The writing is largely passive, undisciplined and long-winded, making reading The Swamp feel like sinking into one.
The author’s style is crisp and exciting. I want to read more, and heartily recommend Michael Daigle to anyone!
Review: This was an interesting story with a nicely convoluted story line. The characters are also interesting in that they cause an emotional reaction - either you like them or you are suspicious of them. This is the first book published by this author and I look forward to reading more of his work.
Who could ask for anything more in a classic styled detective novel. Filled with great characters both good and bad. I look forward to reading more in this series.
