NOVEMBER’S PAST by A. E. Howe

A mystery, the first in a series. Here is the official plot description, straight from the official plot description horse’s mouth:

The job of criminal investigator in a rural Florida county is never easy, but it’s even harder when your father is the sheriff.

When Larry Macklin investigates the murder of a mutilated stranger, the search for the victim’s identity intersects with an arson investigation. The common thread is a small group of people who were in high school together in the ’70s, including Larry’s own father. Before Larry can rule any of them out as the killer, one of them turns up dead.

Why is the murderer targeting this particular group? What past secrets could be worth killing for now? Larry is running out of time and suspects, and his search for the truth may make him the next victim.

It’s about a young guy who takes on the job of deputy sheriff to please his sheriff father, which father seems like a real sh*t to me.  a difficult person to be the son of.  He is single and finds an attraction with the vet tech.

Interesting mystery, nothing too noir or heavy, and has a easy going style to read.  What else can I say?  I don’t expect too much from mysteries/crime novels/detective stories, and sometimes I am surprised at how good they are, and sometimes I am merely satisfied with the competency of the story and writing.  Everything doesn’t have to be Infinite Jest.
