By Brenda Giguere on May 17, 2001
Wolf Valley is a murder mystery that unfolds in rugged Temecula, California, 1954. I was delighted to run across this gem of a book. A strong sense of time, place, and authenticity informs Wolf Valley throughout, and the author makes extremely clever use of real-life characters including the late mystery writer, Erle Stanley Gardner. The book's historical underpinnings, carefully explained in the author's foreward, are as fascinating and full of surprises as the story itself. As for the protagonist, it's a breath of fresh air to find one without the usual complement of exaggerated character flaws. The book's Native American theme is fascinating and thoughtful without being overwrought. I thoroughly enjoyed being in Wolf Valley with private investigator Eric Lloyd and the colorful Uncle Erle.

This is an outstanding first book. As a historian in the Temecula area in which the story takes place, I was amazed at Busenkell's skill interweaving local sites,weather patterns, geographical features, historic personages and events with mathmatic precision in an authentically Gardner-esque style fiction murder mystery. The fast-paced story defies the reader to lay it down until the unpredictable, satisfying finish.

A historical thriller. You really get a sense of the time and place that Busenkell is writing about, although the style leaves a little to be desired. A few typos and amateur phrasing/word choice ruin an otherwise good plot. For those interested in Erle Stanley Gardner, this is a must-read.

Busenkell is excellent in his fusion of history and fiction. Makes a compelling read for regional history and mystery.
