Very good follow-up to the Gus Carpenter/Starvation Lake series opener. // Once again: trouble arrives from out of town; Gus' investigations reveal new skeletons in several closets (including his mother's); small-town hockey fanaticism and the changing tides of the newspaper business play central roles.

A nice second mystery in the Gus Carpenter series. I love the many aspects of the series: hockey culture, Northern Michigan scene, fading newspaper business and especially Gus himself and his many faults and redeeming qualities.

Loved this book - 2nd in a series. Can't wait for more about Starvation Lake.
