Flight to Avoid is the latest installment of the Kurt McBride Mystery series from author Larry Long. In the new book, Assistant State’s Attorney Kurt McBride is assigned the two-year-old cold case of a Chicago construction worker who was beaten and murdered at a work site. While Kurt employees all of his legal and some illegal tactics to solve the gruesome murder, his personal life implodes and Kurt finds himself running away to salvage his own freedom.
Kurt McBride has never lost a case, but he is unsure about his ability to crack the unsolved Gillsdorf murder. Kurt calls on his friend, Detective Digger Green, to interrogate the witnesses who were working at the construction site the night of the murder. As Kurt and Digger reveal the details of Gillsdorf’s life leading up to the murder, threats from members of the tight knit group of construction workers jeopardize Kurt’s case and put his life in danger.
But it is Kurt’s emotionally distant, workaholic wife, Cindy, who turns out to be the true threat. As the Gillsdorf murder case comes to a close, Kurt is accused of killing his wife. He soon finds himself running from the same justice system that he has spent his career representing. As he hides out on a small island on Lake Michigan, Kurt falls in love with a beautiful, smart young woman and accepts the fact that he must change his habit of running away when things get tough. It’s the only way to get his life back.
This book has all of the drama and intrigue mystery lovers demand. It is sexy and dangerous. The ever changing plots will keep readers engrossed in the story until every puzzle piece of each murder is slipped into place.
Long has created a courageous, intelligent, and likeable character in Kurt McBride. He is flawed, yes, but every step he takes to win a case or clear his own name, elicits support and a quiet cheer. The author does an outstanding job of weaving the facts of Kurt’s past and present into this exciting tale of multiple murders, marital deception, and new love.
Flight to Avoid is an action packed mystery starring the exceptional Kurt McBride. I highly recommend it.
