When Clay Wolfe is hired to find out who tried to steal a mouse, he thought it was akin to a fireman getting a cat out of a tree. It wasn’t.
“Sometimes bad genes need to be stamped out and good ones need to be fostered,” Bridget Engel said. “There’s really no difference between mice and human beings when it comes to genes.” She wore a gray suit, and her blonde hair was cut short in the style that Hillary Clinton had made popular.
When Clay Wolfe rekindles an old romance, the summer is looking bright. It wasn’t.
He woke in the middle of the night, gathered his things, and slipped away. After Clay left, Victoria rose from the bed and went into the bathroom, carefully removed the condom from the Kleenex it was wrapped in and put it in a plastic baggie.
Who is the mysterious man who clubs Westy with a hammer and threatens the lives of everybody Clay Wolfe holds dear?
Now, Clive Miller was a fixer. He took care of problems that arose. Once given a task, his hands weren’t tied, and he was well-paid for his troubles. There were two simple rules. Eliminate the problem. Don’t draw attention.
I really enjoyed reading this book, and seeing what Clay Wolfe has been getting up to. This is the third book in the Clay Wolfe/Port Essex mystery series, I would recommend reading the other two books in the series to get to know the characters, though you can read as a standalone. In this story we see Clay and his team try to find out who stole a mouse but not just any mouse. But will Clay be able to catch the culprit or will he be the one being chased? It is a great read with a few twists, a great mystery read. Matt the author always nails the part that keep you captivated and makes you want to read quickly so that you can find out what the outcome will be. It is also set in a small Coastal town which sounds so idyllic that I would love to go there and experience it for myself. I would love to meet all the characters too as they all seem such an interesting bunch. I would highly recommend this book.
I received an ARC copy of this book for an honest review.
