on July 23, 2012 :
For his first book this was a very good read! I hope we can expect more. I think Dick Hannah does a fine job of putting a new spin on the classic mystery genre with this story. The setting and time are contemporary but there is a very appealing nostalgic feel in the approach, especially as regards the detectives and the villains.
We are thrown into the set-up right from the beginning along with the main character, Wynn Johnston. We connect with him emotionally as he must first deal with the murder and loss of his business partner and friend, then deal with the growing frustrations of difficult detectives and watching his business suffer without him. Like all good mysteries, pieces are gradually revealed as secrets and deceptions emerge.
What I found interesting is that Wynn is a triathlete whose business is training runners. The reader is treated to engagingly descriptive runs through a charming Seattle as well as insights about racing, triathlons and the business side of the sport.
With a new twist on a classic style, this book is a good read!
