Book Description:

When the body of an undocumented worker is discovered in the back of a truck in northern Michigan, the death is barely noted. But the woman’s earlier ties to the top resort on Mackinac Island pulls news reporter Nick Steele into the case. Who killed Suzie Alvarez and why was she brutally murdered? Steele chases the story from the Straits of Mackinac to dairy farms in the Thumb and a ritzy den of sin in Traverse City. A Place for Murder shines a bright light on the dark and dangerous underground world of human trafficking.

Dave has created another successful novel (#4). The story takes place in Michigan but you need not be a Michigander to appreciate this intriguing story. Nick, a newspaper journalist, vows to find who murdered a young woman from Mexico that was found in the bed of a truck covered in dirt that used to work at the Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island where he first met her. You witness first hand the devastation of human trafficking which is prevalent and real in our world today. The novel could take place in any city. You will find this book a page turner you won't want to put down.

-- Joseph H. Hartmann

Not only did this book keep me yearning for more, I learned a great deal about the very real world of human trafficking. While that may sound depressing, I found the book to be upbeat and positive in the search for who murdered an undocumented worker. A very good read!
