An ex-cop takes on a widespread criminal organization targeting midwestern towns in this new thriller from the author of The Old Man When a sudden crime wave hits several small midwestern towns, the US Attorney for the region calls on Harry Duncan to investigate. An ex-cop known for his unorthodox methods, Duncan is reluctant to go up against a widespread criminal organization-but the attorney in question is Ellen Leicester, the wife who left him fifteen years earlier, and to her, he can't say no. Initially brought in as a consultant to determine if the racketeering is severe enough to require an all-out investigation by the FBI, Duncan quickly finds himself in conflict with a syndicate far more violent than first suspected. As the investigation develops, he begins compiling a "murder book," the notebook in which a detective keeps records, interviews, photos-everything he needs to build his case. But his scrutiny of the gang soon makes Duncan a target. And Ellen, too. A thrilling and suspenseful tour of crime-addled midwestern towns, Murder Book is signature Thomas Perry, with characters you won't soon forget, crisply-described action sequences, and breathlessly-tense plotting.… (mere)

Harry Duncan is an ex-cop turned PI. Duncan receives a call from the US Attorney asking him to look into recent reports sudden criminal activity being committed in small towns along the Ash River in Indiana. It just happens the the attorney is Harry's ex-wife. Harry is to investigate and report back if there is enough going on to warrant a full scale investigation. This is an exciting thriller I found hard to put down. ( )

Thank you to Penzler Publishers, Mysterious Press and NetGalley for their ARC.

Not sure where to go on this one given that the mystery/case itself was intriguing and the main characters were fun to follow. However, the plot felt jumbled at times and seemed to be going in too many directions at once. Solid crime novel overall, just need to suspend belief with many of the developments throughout that keep the story going. 3.5 stars ( )

I love his Jane Whitefield series and grabbed this stand alone book from the library! Boy, Thomas Perry can write! I had to keep putting this book down to catch my breath! Harry Duncan is an ex-cop known for his unorthodox methods. The US Attorney for the midwest calls him for help checking into a crime spree in a small town. He's reluctant to get involved but the attorney is his ex-wife and he can't say no. ( )

Thomas Perry’s Harry Duncan is clever, creative, good with weapons and very lucky. He persisted through the book to go after the gangsters and uncover who was behind all the shenanigans.
Shout out to the Cornell Ornithologists who helped determine why all the property on the Ash River was being bought up. https://www.birds.cornell.edu/home ( )
