In this third installment in the Macy Greeley series, the special investigator is called to northern Montana to investigate a murder. Macy discoveries ties to the opiate epidemic, and to a physician who has become wealthy from his reputation around Montana for being one of those who will easily write anyone a prescription. This is another good story by this author.

Walleye Junction is the third book in the Macy Greeley series by Karin Salvalaggio, and it clearly solidifies this series and author as major players in the mystery/crime genre. Karin Salvalaggio is as dedicated to excellence as her character Macy Greeley is to finding justice for victims of violence. These stories set in the vastness of Montana find their relatable rhythm in the small communities populating it. And, each of the three books in this series has a different issue that is brought to ...more

Mein Eindruck von diesem Buch lässt sich relativ einfach zusammenfassen: Ein durchschnittlicher Krimi - nicht mehr und nicht weniger.

Die Charaktere waren für mich allesamt wenig interessant und austauschbar - allerdings habe ich auch die ersten beiden Bände der Reihe nicht gelesen, sodass mir natürlich da entsprechendes Vorwissen und emotionale Bindung gefehlt hat. Insbesondere die Dialogpassagen, die sich um die Beziehungen der Hauptpersonen drehen (sowohl die der Kommissarin als auch die der T

Review: WALLEYE JUNCTION

A compelling murder mystery with a convoluted plot scheme, and plentiful emotional involvement, WALLEYE JUNCTION is set in beautifully scenic Montana, land of lakes, mountains, and outdoor activities. In this scenario, one of those outdoor activities involves brutal, cold-blooded murder. Already on the scene is Macy Greeley, roving special investigator for the Montana State Police. Despite a vehicular accident and injuries, Macy plunges into the investigation. Either kick

Was mich etwas gestört hat war das ich vorher nicht wusste das es der Dritte Fall von Detective/ Special Investigator Macy Greeley ist da hätte ich eine kurze knappe einführen erwartet von allen Beteiligten nach & nach, aber gut.

A solid crime novel. Not only the detectives are fleshed out as people with lives, faults and troubles but the daughter of the first murder victim gets her own story strand and a development in this pivotal point in life.

For some reason the identity of the killer seemed obvious early on. Still a good read.

2.5 stars...it started out good with a lot going on but I quickly got bogged down trying to keep the characters straight with so many mundane details. I enjoyed parts of it, and liked the twists at the end but for me it was just so-so.

Really enjoying this series and this volume, focusing on the topic of opiate abuse, certainly met my expectations. Love the main character’s struggles with family and work and life in general. One of the more realistic female police officers out there.

From the dramatic opening scene in which detective Macy Greeley witnesses the murder of outspoken radio host Philip Long, through to the satisfying conclusion, I was gripped throughout. Walleye Junction has plenty of pace, fear and tension, but also a lot of insightful character development, both of individuals and small-town communities. The murder victim’s daughter, Emma, returns to Walleye Junction after her father’s death, and the murky circumstances of her departure several years ago, and h ...more

For readers of mystery and crime set in the American West, Karin Salvalaggio’s newest novel, Walleye Junction (Macy Greeley #6) does not disappoint. Macy Greeley is a roving detective that is the lead investigator into the kidnapping, turned murder of a controversial talk show host Phillip Long. The story is set in the small town Walleye Junction, Montana (not to be confused with the fishing lodge in North Dakota). Like in most small towns, history goes way back—everything is related and intertw ...more

Salvalaggio’s third Macy Greeley mystery, WALLEYE JUNCTION, deals with a topic that is all over the news these days – opioid addiction. While it may seem less than intuitive that rural Montana would be likely to have a significant drug problem, it is in keeping with recent news that its isolation would indeed foster drug abuse. Addiction is one of the two themes of the book, and the other, militia groups, is far less surprising to find in a remote northern Montana town.

Walleye Junction, written by Karin Salvalaggio, is the first book I've read by this author. The book begins with Detective Macy Greeley trying to find a man named Philip Long. Philip has his own radio talk show, and was abducted three days earlier, by gunpoint, while at a gas station. The kidnappers have yet to make contact, and the only thing the police have to go on is the video taken on the security cameras at the gas station. Macy gets a break in the case when she receives a quick phone call ...more

I received an ARC of Walleye Junction in exchange for an honest review. A big thank you to St. Martin's Press.

When a candid radio talk show host, Phillip Long is murdered, Detective Macy Greeley is put on the case. Believing that Long's talk show had something to do with his homicide, she soon finds out that there was much more going on surrounding Phillip's death. Detective Greeley goes on a wild goose chase involving prescription drug abuse, and heroine overdoses in this small town. Following

St. Martin's Press and NetGalley provided me with an electronic copy of Walleye Junction, in exchange for an honest review.

When I requested Walleye Junction, I was unaware that the character of Detective Macy Greeley has made her appearance in other books. It becomes readily apparent, however, as the backstory to the character is slowly released throughout the book. There is enough information given for this book to function as a standalone, though I may have been able to feel more of a connecti

Too many characters...my head is spinning

WALLEYE JUNCTION is a police procedural that takes place (mostly) in the small town of Walleye Junction, Montana.

Philip Long, a controversial radio talk show host is kidnapped and Detective Macy Greeley of the Montana State Police is called in to help investigate. When Long ends up dead, his estranged daughter Emma comes home to see if she can help her mother, who she hasn't spoken to in years.

So the story alternates between the stories of Macy and Emma

Salvalaggio's Macy Greeley series is quickly becoming a favorite for me, and has established the author as one of my must reads. I thought that Walleye Junction was the best of the series so far. I love the characters, action, and setting of these books.

Macy is called in to work the murder of a controversial talk show host. Within a few days, it looks like the killers have been found dead of a heroin overdose. As Macy investigates, she begins to doubt that this convenient solution is not the cor

I suspect that for fans of this series, this installment in detective Macy Greeley's career will be perfectly satisfying and enjoyable, but I just couldn't get into it. Macy feels like she was shoehorned into the plot from a parallel dimension; she has a tediously complicated backstory and the most awkward sounding conversations with her mother (so awkward it actually made me wonder if the mother was the murderer). And I kept getting her confused with victim's daughter.

That being said, I quite

Received a copy from Goodreads Giveaway Program.

Even though I have not been following the series I enjoyed this novel. It has a compelling plot with lots of characters. My favorite character is Detective Macy Greeley, even with all her flaws. It was nice to read a mystery without a lot of explicit sex. There were plenty of twists and turns to keep the reader intrigued and interested even though it is the third in the series. There's enough information in the book to make it a stand alone novel.
