Stealing the Countess Book Review


””



Title: Stealing the Countess
Author: David Housewright
Published: 2016, Minataur Books
No. of Pages: 304
Cover Price: $25.99 Hardcover, $12.99 Kindle



David Housewright, bestselling author and Edgar Award Winner, presents his 13th book in the Mac McKenzie series, Stealing the Countess. Mac, who is an unlicensed PI, and generally volunteers to solve cases for friends, has been talked into finding a $4 million Stradivarius (the Countess Borromeo) which is stolen when Maestro Paul Duclos travels to his hometown to give a free concert. It is insured, of course, but no collector would be foolish enough to buy it on the black market, since it is too well-known. Mac lays the bait to buy back the priceless instrument from the thieves, and the adventure begins.

This series is reminiscent of not-so-serious thriller books like those beloved thrillers written by Janet Evanovich and Sue Grafton, where there is humor intertwined with suspense, and the scenarios don’t include graphic sex, violence or language. That isn’t to say, however, that there isn’t enough suspense to keep readers on the edges of their seats. Housewright does an excellent job of making his characters real; they are interesting, humorous, and fun. Mac McKenzie is everybody’s idea of a perfect hero – rich, good looking, and smart. He has connections, and is somehow able to get information without putting himself in too much danger. However, those with him are at risk, and he feels obligated to protect them, even the ones with less-than-stellar intentions.

Stealing the Countess is recommended, especially for those Suspense/Thriller readers who enjoy humor and a good, fast read.

Special thanks to NetGalley for supplying a review copy of this fun novel.
