Reviews - What do customers think about Desolation Highway (John Smyth Mystery Series #2)?

2nd in the John Smyth Mysteries  Aug 29, 2009
The Royal Canadian Mounties are looking for the perpetrator who is cutting up bodies and dumping them in the woods. There are odd characters living in the vicinity where the bodies are found. Everyone nearby or almost everyone owns a chainsaw - the suspected tool used to chop up the bodies.

Interesting enough and moved rather quickly. Considering the locals and their oddities, it made for several suspects. Wesson, the main detective on the case repeatedly visits 4 of the closest homes to the chain-up area, asking if they saw or heard anything. Considering it is the woods, the sound of chainsaws was pretty much background noise that one could easily block out.

This novel, while having a lot going for it, ended rather quickly with the perp confessing to someone who told what she suspected. That made it a little too implausible, giving the appearance of being in a hurry to bring the story to an end without having the creativity to end the story in a more plausible way.
