The Guitar playing sleuth must find the men responsible for his wife’s death.
The likeable and interesting characters connect you to the story and the plot turns within Knee Deep keep you guessing at the ending. A page-turner. Ready for book 2!
The story is told in a straight forward style, full of conversational asides and interesting characters. I enjoyed the avuncular relationship Cam had with his assistant, the lovely Diane. I developed an immediate affection for several of the characters, in particular the wayward bartender Dave, whose carefree lifestyle is complicated by his attraction to women of questionable sanity.
Anyone who enjoys a fast paced contemporary mystery will enjoy “Knee Deep.” The author Mac (Cam?) Fortner, a native Hoosier, indicates this is the first in a proposed series, so further adventures of the guitar-playing sleuth with a fondness for Wild Turkey and pretty women may be on the horizon. It is my hope that Cam Derringer takes his place in the private eye canon along side Remington Steele, Magnum PI, and John Shaft.
“Knee Deep” is an entertaining, engrossing, and easy read. I could happily envision it as a successful television series. .
