Read What the Dead Leave Behind (Mac McKenzie, #14) Online Free - Once a police detective in St. Paul, Minnesota, Rushmore McKenzie has become not only an unlikely millionaire, but an occasional unlicensed private investigator, doing favors for friends and people in need. When his stepdaughter Erica asks him for just such a favor, McKenzie doesn t have it in him to refuse. Even though it sounds like a very bad idea right from the start.

The father of Malcolm Harris, a college friend of Erica s, was found murdered a year ago in a park in New Brighton, a town just outside the Twin Cities. With no real clues and all the obvious suspects with concrete alibis, the case has long since gone cold. As McKenzie begins poking around, he soon discovers another unsolved murder that s tangentially related to this one. And all connections seem to lead back to a group of friends the victim was close with. But all McKenzie has is a series of odd, even suspicious, coincidences until someone decides to make it all that more serious and personal.

Another winner by David Housewright. I love sense of humor he puts into his character, McKenzie, and the inner voice is a great addition to his character. Another excellent Minnesota author.

I found it hard to get through "What the Dead Leave Behind," and ended up skimming the last quarter or so of the novel. Initially, I picked it up because the title grabbed my attention, and I stayed with it just to see it through. Though this was the 14th book in the series, I didn't have a diffi...

Housewright's latest addition to the Rushmore McKenzie series is a complexly plotted, satisfying mystery. Each book in the series exhibits McKenzie's debates with his Inner voice and his dry sense of humor, though the latter is less evident in this one. Early in the book McKenzie tells someone th...

The book, the first one in the series I have read, is a fast-paced complex murder mystery with a good story flow, and well-described characters, studying people’s inner worlds as well as their interpersonal relationships. As the story develops and gets more complex with each chapter, the suspense...
