About this product Synopsis Homicide cop Bobby Dunston's daughter has been kidnapped, taken in broad daylight on a city street in the middle of September. The kidnappers demand a million dollars and force Dunston to get the ransom from his friend McKenzie. It soon becomes apparent to the two of them that one of the kidnappers is childhood pal Scottie, a once aspiring drummer now gone astray, and that the kidnapping is payback for "crimes" committed in their past.
McKenzie, former cop and now unlicensed P. But Scottie is found dead - brutally murdered - and someone has taken out an open contract on McKenzie, using his own money to pay for it. Dodging attempts on his life from assassins of all shapes and sizes, McKenzie now has precious little time to uncover the mastermind behind it all if he's going to survive.

Finding the kidnapper is not the end of the case, but the beginning of greater threat on the life of McKenzie and those to whom he is close. In some ways, I like his protagonists more than some of the others. McKenzie is macho, yet flawed.
Mac McKenzie - Book Series In Order
His sense of humor lightens the story and can get the character into trouble. Housewright is skilled at including local flavor and history to his locations, explanations of the Minnesota justice system and a myriad of other details that are fascinating and instructive without ever intruding on or slowing down the plot, action and suspense of the story.
The story was gripping; one of those I started at 3 p. The suspense built with each new twist. The violence can be brutal, but so are the bad guys. View 1 comment. Nov 20, Brandi rated it it was amazing. This was another great read.
The twists are fantastic. Good read, maintained a brisk pace from start to finish. Feb 20, Steve Payne rated it liked it. McKenzie sure has a way of getting himself in trouble. Nothing new or spectacular here but that's OK. It is alright to settle in with an old friend now and again.

The book Its probably been about six months since I received this book and I am wondering why I waited to so long to read it. The book moves at a great pace.

I love the McKenzie character and really enjoyed this book. If you are looking for a new series, I recommend this one, as well as this book. May 12, Maria rated it liked it.
Sexist descriptions of women really turned me off.
I used to love David Housewright. He's still a fun author to read. But really, do we have to hear about his relative attraction to every woman he runs across? I wished for as even-handed descriptions of the men, but it was sorely lacking. John Sandford does this better.

The daughter of Mac's best friend is kidnapped, and they want a million dollars from Mac for her safe return. As with the previous books in the series, you don't know who is trustworthy, because someone is not as innocent as they appear. Mac's hunt for the kidnappers takes him all over the Twin Cities' many different neighborhoods, from one clue to the next, as he digs deeper into the solution. The ending will be a surprise.

Madman on a Drum
I have already placed the next book in the series on my list of books to read. Jul 29, Catherine Woodman rated it liked it. This one focuses on the nature of revenge and how to go about getting it or getting over it mostly getting it--McKenzie is a gritty guy. I think there are some psychological truths here, but they are buried a bit in the stir of fighting and bravado. Jul 15, Robin rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: Anyone.
