ICEWATER MANSIONS (Suspense-Michigan-Cont) – VG
Allyn, Doug – 1st in series
St. Martin's Press, 1995 – Hardcover
Michelle "Mitch" Mitchell has been a deep-water diver. Upon learning of her father's death, she returns to Michigan to settle his affairs. That turns out to be more difficult than expected when she learns he has been involved in less-than-legal activities, including offering to sell custody to the biological grandfather of Mitch's son.
Allyn is a recent discovery for me and am I ever glad I found him. His books are fast-paced and exciting with great characters, both human and animal, excellent sense of place, some great lines and just a touch of the mystical. This was a very good, straight through, don’t-bother-me-now read.
