Steven Axelrod in his new book, “nantucket sawbuvk book coverNantucket Sawbuck” Book One in the Henry Kennis Mystery series published by Poisoned Pen Press introduces us another adventure with Henry Kennis.

From the back cover:   When Nantucket homeowner Preston Lomax is killed, everyone on the island could be a suspect. Lomax lived large, owed money, and the word was spreading he was planning to stiff them all and disappear. Chief of Police Henry Kennis, a newcomer from California, finds himself investigating with help from the State Police. Together they solve the case—or so it appears. But Kennis can’t shake the feeling that they’ve missed something.

Kennis soon discovers scandals and intrigues behind the scenes in one of America’s most exclusive resort locations. This glamorous setting hosts an eclectic cast of local characters— oddball journalists, surfing carpenters, drug dealers, wealthy homeowners, and their slacker children. Kennis uncovers a truth that lies somewhere between the bad blood and the good neighbors and realizes that the real answer hits painfully close to home.

There is a different murder mystery where a helper tells the investigator after each suspect questioning, “he did it, she did it”. Get ready you are about to do that here as well. This is some investigation. And what a way to begin as Chief of Police for Henry Kennis. If it is possible to say such a thing Preston Lomax deserved to be killed. Lots of reasons so that means lots of suspects. Nantucket is quite a town it almost seems as though everyone has something to hide in this town and none of them want Henry to discover what it is. The story hums along at a fast pace as Henry is working to figure out just what is going on. “Nantucket Sawbuck” is loaded with twists and turns and red herrings that will leave you guessing all the while you are flipping pages to find out what happens next. Mr. Axelrod has provided us with a marvelous character in Henry Kennis and I look forward to reading about more of his adventures.
