Description
Lottery winner and ex-journalist Donal Fitzgerald joins forces with his girlfriend, DNR conservation officer Mercy Virdon, to solve the mysterious death of a beloved angler, Charlie, who was murdered in his tent in a state campground and who was known by all--and who may have known too much. Set in the engaging small town of Ossning on the Borchard River in Michigan's Upper Peninsula--an angler's dream, filled with eccentric, believable, sympathetic, and unforgettable characters--"Riverwatcher" is a classic whodunit. Fitzgerald and Mercy's investigation to discover the deadly secret among the locals leads to dead ends until a surprisingly bookish theory surfaces. Weber expertly weaves this character-driven novel with a strong sense of place, creating a great yarn for anglers and mystery lovers and, as it turns out, a literally literary mystery.
