Unable to get the attention of the local police, the events continue to escalate, culminating in the local bully's dead body being found floating in the water near the dock of their houseboat. Making this not only one of the least relaxing vacations ever, but one of the deadliest.… (more)

This is probably one of the most solid books in the Paul Turner series. Set in a place called The North Woods in Canada, the story read more like a fun mystery than the more usual police procedural Zubro tends to plod through. The issues of bullying (in a number of forms) and homophobia are handled quite well as well as showing just how blind some parents are to their own faults and those of their children. Well worth reading. ( )

While Paul Turner and Buck Fenwick are on a fishing vacation with their families, Paul's younger son finds the body of a local troublemaker in the lake.

This one left rather a bad taste in my mouth. Egalitarian, liberal Americans show racist, homophobic, misogynistic Canadians the error of their ways. If I hadn't already bought the other books in the series to read on the flight home I probably wouldn't have continued. ( )
