Welcome to our spot on the Partners in Crime "Paskagankee" Book Blog Tour!
When Mike McMahon moves to the remote village of Paskagankee, Maine, to take over as chief of police following a tragic shooting, he’s hoping for nothing more than to get a new start on life. Instead, he encounters a series of brutal murders, beginning almost immediately upon his arrival.
An isolated village, remote and vulnerable. A series of brutal murders. And a vengeful spirit born of tragedy, reawakened after a centuries-old massacre.
Welcome to Paskagankee, Maine. You may not survive the visit.
Review: Wow, was what I thought as I finished this book! The book sorta starts slow, but then gains momentum, and is true page turner by 3/4 of the way in! I liked how the author took a native American legend and updated it into the central story line. The book is a good mix of police procedural, suspense, horror, and romance- a fairly unique combination! Leverone gets his characters right- you have enough back story of their small town lives, that you feel like you really KNOW the characters! This is another book that might keep you up if you read it at night, as some of the horror scenes are graphic. But in fact, that was one of the reasons I liked it so much- it's HONEST. He told the scenes, as the cops/main characters saw them. This really brings you into the book and keeps you in its trance. I was quite happy to see that the town and main characters will be back in a new book-Revenant!
