Since becoming an unlikely millionaire and quitting the St. Paul Police Department, Rushmore McKenzie has been working as an unlicensed private investigator, basically doing favors for friends and people in need. But even for him, this latest job is unusual. He's been asked to find a stolen Stradivarius, known as the Countess Borromeo, that only the violinist seems to want him to find. Stolen from a locked room in a B&B in the violinist's former hometown of Bayfield, Wisconsin, the violin is valued at $4 million and is virtually irreplaceable. But the foundation that owns it and their insurance company refuses to think about buying it back from the thief (or thieves.) However, Paul Duclos, the violinist who has played it for the past twelve years, is desperate to get it back and will pay out of his own pocket to get it back.

Lightweight murder/mystery novel. Not a real fan of the rich investigator, with very beautiful partner, solving crimes, This one is at least entertaining. Might read other books in the series, but not rushing out to do so.

Very good plot and interesting setting. I'd call this style "metro mystery" as it doesn't seem to fit the "hard boiled" subgenre. Enough action to keep me turning the pages, smart plot, no blood & gore simply for the sake thereof. First I've read in this series - I wonder how fans of the series think it compares to earlier titles.
