I accidentally picked up this book at the library. Wasn’t wearing my glasses and saw “David” on the cover – thought it was David Baldacci. The cover art kinda looked like a Baldacci book. I decided to read the book anyway since it was a mystery and was glad I did. Rushmore McKenzie, a retired police officer who is now wealthy, is approached by a young woman from the town’s richest family to find her missing boyfriend. Adventure ensues. I liked McKenzie; he was a sensible guy who played well with ...more

David Housewright writes like Robert Parker. I told him so at an author chat and he said, 'I've been accused of that.' Their detectives are similar: wise-ass tough guys with a powerful streak of cool sophistication, right down to their weird names: Spenser (Parker) and Rushmore (Housewright).
The problem I see fits the work of both authors: Rushmore is too cool for school. It's hard to credit this sharpie running around loose, poking into stuff, packing a piece and ready to use it. Housewright d

Ahhhh, another satisfied customer!
In this 11th Mac McKenzie book, "that fucking McKenzie" is prevailed upon by the granddaughter of his rich nemesis, Walter Muehlenhaus, to find her missing Spanish boyfriend. Riley Muehlenhaus, the Muehlenhaus Girl, has been more than dating Juan Carlos Navarre, when he suddenly disappears. As McKenzie begins the search among the über-wealthy Minnesotans whose company Riley and Juan Carlos keep, he runs afoul of the reincarnation of a Hispanic Mafia group that seems just as intent to locate Juan ...more

If you like a well written mystery with good characters and a satisfying conclusion please read David Housewright. I was so surprised when I discovered him that I hadn't heard of him before - he writes good quality mystery fiction.
I will say outright that Housewright's works are equal to John Sandford's writing. Both are Minnesota authors and both have what seems to be an inside workings of the knowledge a Minnesota cop would have. Wonderful!
Introduced to David Housewright last year by a co-worker -- and am caught up in the characters ... terrific read. Enough surprise and suspense to have me looking to the next one ...
Would have rated it a 3.5 if possible. A lark, and very enjoyable. I have read at least one previous book in this series. At times, it reminds me of Robert B. Parker mysteries.

Recommends it for: Housewright fans. McKenzie fans.
Not his best but it became more interesting as it moved along. I would have liked a better ending.

Definitely one of his best by far.
Very solid entry in this consistently well -written and well plotted series.

Rushmore McKenzie is a great character...the now wealthy, retired-young ex-cop with too much time on his hands.

Also enjoy the Twin Cities and Minnesota lake locations.
A McKenzie mystery set in Minnesota. Always fun to read
