Sam Jenkins, police chief in Prospect Tennessee, is a character that I cannot get enough of because he is what my uncle Lou would call spiffy. He has all the charm that the ladies love and that dirty criminal mind that is used to get the real criminal behind bars.
The novel starts with the killing of a young Korean masseuse after a new massage parlor is opened in town by an ex-hooker acquaintance whom Sam cleared in an investigation of a previous murder and a lovely Korean woman. Trouble always comes in multiple for Sam.
There is a shakedown of the parlor and Sam investigates using all of his small-town police force, family, and friends. His and his wife's knowledge of Korea, his friend's abilities, and Sam's uncanny New York detective work sheds light at the end of the tunnel.
The way Sam Jenkins' mind detects baffles all his cohorts, including those in big city Knoxville, but he gets the job done. He is a softy at heart, but don't even think his wife knows how his mind works.
Mr. Zurl’s whodunit novels will always be on my bookshelf. This mystery kept me thinking to the end.
If you like a good book, try one of Wayne's.
When Sam is asked by an old acquaintance (cue the first of many beautiful women) to assist her partner in a shakedown by the Korean mafia, he can’t resist the challenge. When dead bodies start piling up, he enlists the help of his wife, his desk sergeant and a local reporter, not to mention his own law enforcement team.
Typically I receive books for free in exchange for an honest and unbiased review, however if I find an author whose work is exceptional, I will purchase their novels from that point forward. That is the case with Mr. Zurl’s work, this is a verified purchase. See all our reviews at http://www.bookexplosions.com/ or on Goodreads at [...]
This time, Sam has murders to solve which involve some very nasty mobsters - at least he thinks thy are responsible for all the killings, but there are some surprises in store.
Aided by his wife, Kate, Desk Sergeant Bettye and TV journalist Rachel, Sam wades into the fray, pushing all before him with charm and manipulation until the perpetrators are finally uncovered.
Pure Zurl and Jenkins double act!
