I really enjoyed this book. I had no idea it is 13th in the series but I had no problem following the story lines. The book is simple, in a good old fashioned way, where family and community matter. This is a low key and sometimes humorous read with no unnecessary violence or sex. What originally led me to the book was the title, it intrigued me, I had no idea what it meant until about halfway through when I just had to chuckle...:) There are a few story lines going on here, we have the hospitalized and beloved grand child of "Doc" Paul Osborne, a widowed and retired dentist who now helps his blossoming love interest and avid fly fishing buddy, Police Chief "Lew" Lewellyn Ferris as a forensic dentist with some police cases, including the current one with dead bodies that keep showing up. We also have the fly fishing story going on, who knew it could an interesting and fun storyline? Deep in the National forest by a secluded river and a large wolf gathering site, two dead bodies that had been missing were found. Lew asks for Doc's help and expertise in trying to figure out who killed the men and just what is going on in the forest anyway? The father of one of the dead men comes to town to find and claim his son and helps Police Chief Lew with the case as well as teaching her the fine art of Tankara fly fishing, much to the chagrin of Doc who finds himself getting a little jealous. With help from some fun town characters, what the Doc and the chief find leads them to the town millionaire Bud Jarvison and his bully of a wife Sharon. (less)

What I liked about the book and what drew me to it in the first place was the setting which is in Saint Paul MN. my hometown and I always enjoy a book set where I have lived. This is book 3 in the series so, maybe had I read book one & two I would have enjoyed it more. The relationship between Kirk Stevens, Minnesota state policeman and Carla Windemere, FBI agent is a strange one. Kirk is old, paunchy and supposedly happily married to a good looking and kind woman but he kind of likes Carla, she is young and gorgeous and sleeps with a guy at work and dates a few more of them but she kind of likes him too, what? As much as I got to know Kirk, I liked him the best. Carla not so much. Her personality was odd and the way she talked wasn't very realistic to me. People start dying and it is up to Kirk and Carla to find out how these people are tied together and who wants them dead. It was interesting to get in the mind of the killer and I would recommend this to someone who wants a fast thrill read. The title of the book is Kill Fee but I think It should be called Kill Switch, which makes much more sense once you have read the book! (less)

Time travel and a mystery? woohoo! A really good book and I loved the environmental aspect. If you had the chance to go back in time and change something, maybe keep someone you loved or the whole planet from dying, would you? The book starts out in 2014 with 13 yr. old Ethan fishing by a river one day and having what he thinks is an illusion, a wild time "snap". The air suddenly shimmers and he feels like he is falling. When he snaps out of it he sees a young naked, disorientated and very scared girl just pop in to his field of vision and she has the numbers 51714 scrawled down one arm... He tries to talk to her, she is afraid and cold, he gives her his New York Giants sweatshirt to wear. Three years later he sees her in his precalculus class and his world forever changes. So starts the story of Ethan and Prenna who though they may have just saved the world and fallen in love they realize to late their love can never be. Prenna, her mother and a few other people have fled the year 2090 where climate change and plagues have killed almost the entire human race along with the planet. I was swiping kindle pages fast and furious with this book. There was a little question at the end, "because who knows what happens next".... I would so read book two! (less)
