Format: Hardcover
Former TV news anchor Kyle Champion reluctantly accepts the invitation from his old college buddy Matt Kreuger to attend a memorial service for the latter's deceased dad. Actually, the invitation was offered because Matt's sister-in-law Marcia demanded he ask Kyle. She knows Kyle has had some success in solving homicides and Marcia wants Kyle to investigate the death of her father in law, P.J. Though officially P.J. died of a heart attack, Marcia feels his four-decade younger second wife Sorah killed him because she inherits everything in his revised will.
Matt drives the three hours from Minneapolis to the remote "Kreugerland" cabins near Bent Line Lake. There he meets the family he met several years ago when he stayed at the cabins. He also finds Sorah to be quite charming and not at all like a murderous Jezebel. As he unenthusiastically discusses the death with everyone remotely involved, Kyle begins to uncover disturbing discrepancies that makes him wonder if perhaps P.J. was murdered.
THE FOURTH OF JULY WAKE is an interesting amateur sleuth mystery that readers will enjoy because of the depth of the ensemble's secondary characters. In spite of his TV exposure, Kyle remains a charming idealist though he loses some of rosy optimism due to the results of his inquiries. Though why the dominating Marcia would stay as a second fiddle seems stretched, this cozy will delight fans that will wonder along with Kyle whether a homicide occurred and if so did Sorah really murder her elderly spouse?

HASH(0xa243a21c) out of 5 stars Solid Adams, as always May 18 2010
By J. Hundley - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is solid Harold Adams. Adams has long been dependable for his lean, Cain-like prose and narrative skills. The only shame is his lack of commercial success leading him to have to so often write to spec and library market page limits. IF you have not delved into Adams' mysteries yet, you are in for a treat and owe it to yourself to hunt up his earlier masterpieces The Barbed-Wire Noose and Paint the Town Red.

HASH(0xa243c498) out of 5 stars interesting revamps of old favorites July 3 2015
By J D Karpinski - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
an interesting variation on the "English Country Estate" mystery..... takes place at the lakeside compound of a wealthy family - a friend of one of the kids has been asked to attend a wake and see if he can determine if the patriarch was murdered by his MUCH younger bride, or if he died happy from too much sexual exertion at 68. the plot was good and the characters fairly interesting although there are a few whose presence seemed superfluous to the story. When the mystery is solved, how the family handles it is a complete surprise.
