Foreign Deceit by Jeff Carson *****

In Foreign Deceit by Jeff Carson Wolf is a deputy sheriff in a small town in Colorado. This book involves two cases, one of a high school boy who accidentally falls to his death and a suicide by Wolf’s brother in Italy. Without giving anything away to experienced mystery readers, both case turn out to be murders, as do all deaths in all mysteries.

Wolf is tough and observant and persistent. The plots move along in a believable and interesting way. This is one of those good books that read too fast and end too soon.

It was available as a free Kindle book as an introduction to the series. Try it, you’ll it.

However, there was a third plot line about sheriff’s office politics and promotions. I felt the resolution of this plot line was contrived for no other purpose than to leave a questions for the next book in the series.
