More Information
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.

REVIEW:
?The motive Fitzgerald eventually uncovers for Charlie?s murder is ingenious and convincing, but the real lure, apart from the hook for readers who are serious anglers, is the unruffled sense of small-town life...? (Kirkus Reviews)
