A Mitch King Mystery
By Sam Waas
Outskirts Press, 2009 ($17.95)

The Texas Gulf Coast is the setting for FULL CIRCLE which introduces Mitch King, a Houston based private detective. He has two cases going on simultaneously; to protect a sexy murder suspect and assist a female NASA astronaut who is being stalked by an emotionally disturbed admirer. Things become complicated when he becomes romantically involved with the murder suspect.
The author clearly loves the hard-boiled private eye genre -- although I would say FULL CIRCLE is more "medium boiled" -- and has created a charming and roguish character in Mitch King. While reading, I couldn't keep from imagining Tom Selleck ("Magnum, P.I.") as Mitch. (I mean that as a compliment.) I enjoyed the author's breezy writing style. I am eagerly looking forward to SUDDEN STORM, the next Mitch King adventure.
