A Door in the River

A Door in the River - Inger Ash Wolfe When beloved local businessman Henry Wiest is found dead of an apparent wasp sting in a place where he had no reason to be, Detective Inspector Hazel Micallef questions whether the explanation is as simple as it appears. In her own inimitable maverick way, she sets off on an investigation that uncovers horrific crimes being committed behind the seemingly innocent front of the casino at a nearby Native American reservation. At the same time she must deal with her irascible 87-year-old mother's increasing frailty and a reorganization of her department that has put one of her former subordinates in charge.

(I would really give this book 3-1/2 stars because I feel like the whole illegal private sex club thing is being done to death to the point where it's almost boring, but will round it up to 4 instead of down to 3 because the book, as usual in this series, is so well written.)
