Housewright, David – 2nd in series
St. Martin's Minotaur, 2005- Hardcover
Mac McKenzie retired from the police force in order to receive a $3 million reward and now spends his time doing favors for his friends. Mr. Mosley, a beekeeper and second father to Mac, asks him to look into the reason why his bees are dying. What starts as a simple favor turns violent, deadly and involves the FBI and the Mafia.
Mac is one of my favorite characters; he's likable, loyal, ethical, and conscious of the price of violence, and there is violence. The story is tight, suspenseful, has great dialogue and grabs you from page one. Simply put, Housewright is a excellent writer who has created a great series. Start at the beginning and enjoy.
