I am completely hooked on Warren Easley's Cal Claxton. Have read them all. Great author. This one is set in the winter in the Oregon wine country, and although Cal Claxton deserves a rest after his last extremely tough case. Set at the very beginning of the COVID 18 pandemic, a young woman named Willow Daniels shows up at his office, asking Claxton to represent her in the settlement of her uncle's estate. The uncle's death was ruled a suicide, but Willow isn't buying it. Against Cal's better judgment, how can he resist this single mother who tows her young daughter in a trailer behind her bike, takes gorgeous photos of Portland's bridges, and serves delicious French cuisine from her Portland food cart.
Claxton soon learns that the uncle, a brilliant scientist, recently came up with an innovative device to detect viruses. The list of suspects grows large since the expected payoff is huge. This novel finds Claxton in one of the most complex and dangerous cases he's ever investigated.
After a key witness is brutally murdered, Zoe, the woman Cal loves falls ill, he realizes he's up against two killers-a ruthless murderer and a deadly virus. The plot is terrific, character development superb. Page burner! Go read it, you will not be disappointed.
