Target: A Pete Thorsen Mystery

Robert Wangard. Ampersand (www.ampersandworks.com), $17.95 trade paper (312p) ISBN 978-0-9818126-9-4
Wangard launches a promising contemporary mystery series with this engaging debut, featuring Pete Thorsen, a Chicago lawyer turned amateur detective. As a managing partner for his law firm, Thorsen has his hands full. But he is unwillingly thrust into the middle of a murder investigation when Cara Lane—the woman he dined with the night before—is found drowned. Reports that the two argued at dinner, along with Thorsen's admission that, after the date, he went for a late-night walk that brought him to the crime scene, make him a natural suspect. To clear his name, the attorney digs into Lane's past, discovering that his dinner date was a former student radical involved in a bombing that injured two people 20 years earlier. Wangard's novel moves along—twisting and turning—at a brisk pace. And his well-drawn detective has enough personality to make readers excited for the next installment.
