Read full description of the books Dead Jitterbug:Personal Response:
I read the book Dead Jitterbug by Victoria Houston. I really enjoyed reading this book, because of the suspense in the murder. I really enjoyed the fishing, and the mystery incorporated into the book.
In the beginning of the book, Ray and Doc took a group of girls out for a two day fishing seminar. On the last day of the seminar, Kitsy Mcdonald got a phone call. She was upset at the person on the phone. When she put the phone back in her purse, a pistol fell out of it. She told them that it was just for self defense. When Doc got back to the shore from the fish seminar, he saw his good friend the Chief Lewellyn Ferris. Chief Lew got a call from dispatch saying that Hope Mcdonald’s property has her alarmed tripped. When Ray and Lew got to Hope Mcdonald’s house, they found her murdered in her living room with no sign of the murderer. They found a pistol shell on the ground behind Hope Mcdonald. While working on the case, they found out that Kitsy had an huge argument with her mother, Hope Mcdonald, before she was killed. After weeks of working on the case, they charged Kitsy Mcdonald for the murder of her mother.
Doc was a retired dentist and was a very good fishermen. Doc also helped the police department with some of cases. Doc was a older gentleman and was a very kind loving person. Another person was, Chief Lewellyn Ferris or called Lew. She was the Chief of Police, and she was running for the position of Sheriff. She also was a very good fishermen, and she was learning how to fly fish. She was close friends with Doc.
The book took place on Loon Lake in Wisconsin, which was near the Wausau area. The crime team who helped in the investigation was from the Madison area. The setting was important because Hope Mcdonald was a known figure around the United states, and this was her home without everyone knowing.
I recommend this book to high school students because of the reading level. High school guys might find this book more interesting, because of the fishing incorporated in the book. High school girls might like this book because of the mystery.
