Book Review: ‘Something Wicked: A McKenzie Novel’ By David Housewright

The 19th novel in the series is a fun novel, with a great character in McKenzie, an ex-cop, who is always asked to help investigate situations, in this book murders. My first time reading one of these novels and I really liked it. McKenzie is at home watching a Twins baseball game when his wife Nina, who owns a Jazz Club in Minnesota, tells him they’re off to resort hotel in Redding, Minnesota, to help out an ex employee Jenness, who runs the resort. Her Grandmother died a few months ago and she thinks it was murder, it was ruled a regular death of old age. The family has been split about selling the resort for a lot of money, Jenness wants to keep and a family vote is coming up. McKenzie is investigating what might have happened. He can find no proof and while there, another murder takes place and he helps to solve it. The novel takes place during covid, which is worked in nicely in the plot, as is the resort, lake and surrounding areas. Fans of the series will be happy with this one.

You can pick up Something Wicked in stores on Tuesday, May 24th from Minotaur Books.
