Jakes Hines, a Heinz 57 variety kind of man, is the chief of detectives in Rutherford, Minnesota a town of about 100,000. He heads an excellent team of individuals who are called uptown to solve all kinds of crime from domestic disputes to high school fights.

In this story a young boy tragically dies in full view of many people as he is happily waiting for the school bus. He has been shot, but no one heard a gun and no one saw a shooter. The pages turn at a quick clip as a full investigation is instigated and clues begin to,surface at a rapid rate. The tension builds while at the same time Jake and crew remain calm, focused and committed to their jobs. This was a very good police procedural with plenty of time dedicated to character development.

I am very glad there are several more in this series. ( )

Across town, a riot breaks out among members of the hockey team in the high school parking lot, apparently instigated by the police chief's son. For detective Jake Hines, spring is still a very long way off.

Fighting the winter blues north of the forty-third parallel requires a change in attitude, something Jake is able to do as he tackles these highly sensitive cases. When a call about the shooting of a dog provides Jake and his team with the missing link, things start to heat up -- and bring a killer's blood to the boiling point.

Police Detective Jack Hines must investigate two emergency calls: a child has been critically injured in his own front yard and something approaching the proportions of an old fashioned gang rumble has broken out in the parking lot of Central High.… (more)
