Very suspenseful, interesting setting and detail of surroundings make story more real. Helps visualize background of story and good character development. Went and bought another book in this series after finishing this one, going backwards, currently reading book before this one. Reading book 2 and then will read book one, actually It works with these to read out of order, you know some of the details that the characters are not aware of but does not ruin the story line. Well written stories showcasing the Portland Oregon area.

Then you'll like the McAllister series, and Terminal 9 is no exception. Gritty, realistic and often quite descriptive, this book explores the death of an old man which turns out not be just an accident. The story makes you feel as if you are part of the case as Mac and Dana uncover clues, interview suspects and discover body parts along the way. Mac and Dana make a good team, with none of the police detective sterotypes. They both allow each other to take charge and do thing his or her own way. They have a good relationship with a hint of romance but not so much to take away from the main story. *Note this is not a romance story so as not to scare off male readers.* I've enjoyed Patricia Rushford since reading her Jennie McGrady series and this book continues the enjoyment. And I've just discovered that my library has order book 4 of the series!

Format: Paperback
An elderly, retired railroad worker in a motorized scooter is run over by a train. Accident? At first, that's what everyone assumed. But when the switchyard foreman moves the train engine from the scene despite an order from the authorities not to do so, Mac McAllister grows suspicious. Is there more to this death than meets the eye? But what?

Kooky Dr. Kristen Thorpe, local medical examiner, appeared for the gruesome task of collecting the scattered remains of the body. An autopsy would be performed, though the cause of death is painfully obvious . . . isn't it? Then again, why would an invalid man be on the railroad tracks in the middle of the night?

As Mac's instincts take over, he and his new partner Detective Dana Bennett are plunged into a twisted and bizarre investigation that lead them to suspect after suspect - and no answers. The dead man's relatives prove evasive but rouse more suspicion with each meeting. And it seems the old man was an annoyance with his constant visits to the yard where he used to work, giving unwanted advice and generally making a pest of himself.

A teenager is discovered vandalizing the old man's home. Then the place catches fire. Was it arson? Another body is found. Who is it? Every time Mac and Dana think they're closing in on some answers, they're thrown off in a different direction, and the list of suspects mushrooms.

And Mac's personal life is nearly as chaotic as the investigation. His old attraction to Dana escalates as they work together, but he is almost equally drawn, for some curious reason, to the eccentric Kristen Thorpe. When he accepts-and thoroughly enjoys-a dinner invitation from Kristen, he is more confused than ever.

Format: Paperback
Antonio "Mac" McCallister and new partner, Dana Bennett, are trying to ignore their attraction to each other while solving the murder of Clay Mullins, an 89-year old, retired, wheelchair-bound railroad worker who owned prime riverside property adjacent to the railroad. The victim was killed by being struck by the very trains he loved.

Considered a nuisance by some at the railroad, the retiree was a regular fixture at the railroad yards during the common workday. One of the railroad workers, in particular, is filled with animosity toward Mullins. Joining the suspect list are Mullins' heirs, a successful daughter and a deadbeat son, until shortly into the investigation the victim's house burns, and the son is found dead in the rubble.

McCallister is challenged in this book to go forward without his partner who is recovering from cancer treatment. He misses his partner and the subtle reminders that came from him that God is in control of all things, even Mac's love life. As Mac fights his attraction to Bennett, she proves to be a brilliant young detective, and her abilities deliver a blow to Mac's ego, causing him to struggle on another level. When she fixes him up with the dynamic medical examiner, Mac struggles more and is fun to watch as he works himself through these situations.

Terminal is a good read for those who like police procedurals and carries the tone of one experienced in police work-for good reason. Co-author Harrison James is a supervisor of a major metropolitan Police Department and whose background includes working as an undercover narcotics agent, homicide and sexual/physical abuse detective, and he has also unforced big-game poaching laws in back-country investigations. He's also made appearances in several of today's police/crime reality shows.
