  • The first thing we do, let s kill all the lawyers, or at least one Vance Hayes died late one night when his snowmobile broke through thin ice near the Wisconsin Dells The cold hearted, hard headed lawyer is unmourned by clients, colleagues, or anyone else including his reluctant eulogist, fellow attorney Rep Pennyworth.Interest in Hayes death is truly perfunctoryThe first thing we do, let s kill all the lawyers, or at least one Vance Hayes died late one night when his snowmobile broke through thin ice near the Wisconsin Dells The cold hearted, hard headed lawyer is unmourned by clients, colleagues, or anyone else including his reluctant eulogist, fellow attorney Rep Pennyworth.Interest in Hayes death is truly perfunctory until it intersects with peril facing charmingly ingenuous Vietnamese American court reporter Sue Key, tied to Milwaukee s Hmong community Could Hayes have died not because of any of the rotten and vicious things he spent his career doing to literally hundreds of people, but because of the one decent, human endeavor that marked his adult life The situation is complicated further by deer season when several weeks in the fall, 700,000 people carrying loaded firearms head up north And by the presence of a gaggle of lawyers, patrician and plebian, grouped around Indianapolis and Milwaukee, not to mention a private eye, an e tailer into books, and a seedy photographer Can Rep and his shrewd wife Melissa find in them the key to solving the puzzle of Vance Hayes death

    1. When Rep Pennyworth is asked by his good friend MacKenzie Stewart to give a eulogy, he has no idea how much trouble it will make for him. Hayes is your classic example of why lawyers have such a bad rep. It is truly difficult to find anything nice to say about the man. Two years later, Rep is trying to get a law office going in Milwaukee. He’s doing this because his lovely wife Melissa has a job offer. One of his first cases involves a young woman and a photographer, and a cigarette she insist [...]


    2. Oh, my!! What fun and really pretty suspenseful! Rep and Melissa Pennyworth have just moved to Milwaukee, Wisconsin so that Melissa can start her tenure track in English literature at the university. Rep has persuaded his Indianapolis partners that having a copyright office there would be a good expansion idea. He has a friend who is willing to let him have some office space AND the friend owes Rep for an eulogy he made him do for a man who will come back to "haunt" him. The literary illusions a [...]


    3. I think I spent the whole book as confused about this mystery as the characters were. That's probably good writing. However, I don't feel like the characters ever became people to me. There was something about them that remained one dimensional. I think that emotion was lacking; everything was very analytical but I'm sure even lawyers have emotions that are delivered in less flat statements.I have to admit that the premise is outside of the realm of my experience, so I had very little point of r [...]


    4. Didn't enjoy this as much as the first two Melissa and Rep Pennyworth mysteries. The first few chapters didn't have much connection to the rest of the story, and it was hard to keep track of characters who weren't mentioned enough to make an impression. There was just enough activity of interest towards the end to make it worth finishing. The writing was good, but this one was kind of hard to stay with all the way through.


    5. It's refreshing to read a book that has some polysyllabic vocabulary in it. I read a review that likened the Pennyworths to Nick and Nora Charles which was an apt comparison. It's obvious the author has never brewed tea; however, as tea no longer steeps once the tea leaves (or grains as he calls them) are removed. I enjoyed the characters but at times found the storyline a little hard to follow.


    6. [From my Public Library]Lots of wit and interesting dialogue in this mystery, where lawyer Rep Pennyworth and his English professor wife, Melissa, are drawn by a series of coincidences into a two-year-old death of a person Rep detested. More murder comes their way, as well as intricate and intriguing clues. Set in Milwaukee and the woods thereabouts.


    7. As you can see, I like mysteries a lot. This one is great. I haven't quite finished it, though. It is very witty, joyfully investigating, and a somewhat tangled plot. The one thing that it has against it is that there is a little bit too legalese for me.


    8. Michael Bowen is an excellent writer. He obviously knows his subject matter, but if you don't, it's sometimes hard to keep up with him. I found if I just went with the flow, I began to get the story. Not too easy to read, but still very entertaining.


    9. Bowden's mysteries aren't suited for reading quickly or 10 minutes here and 10 minutes there. It takes some concentration to keep all the people and detail squared away. But the main characters remain likable: I love that Rep is a lawyer with no desire to be rich or famous or even notable.


    10. His writing reminds me of a John Grisham novel but I found the whole plot a little hard to follow or actually get really interested in.


    11. I like this couple. I like Nick and Nora type mysteries and this couple is great. This is my first of this series (the author's 3rd).
