What people are saying about this book:
Finally there is a new author who will challenge the likes of Michael Connelly and David Baldacci. In this latest mystery, Sugar Island (in Michigan's beautiful Upper Peninsula) is used as a fitting backdrop to the wild action. It is a fast-paced thriller that you won't want to put down until the final page. -Island Books
Murder on Sugar Island is a fast paced mystery full of twists and turns. If you like James Patterson, you'll enjoy Michael Carrier's second novel in the Getting to Know Jack series. This riveting thriller will keep you turning pages all the way to the shocking end. -Cascade Writer's Group
A good read. I thoroughly enjoyed it, and kept coming back to it whenever I had the free time. The characters were really good. Connelly and Baldacci should approve-by Dave on August 10, 2013
If you like James Patterson and Michael Connelly, you'll love Michael Carrier. Carrier has proven that he can hang with the best of them (seriously- we're talking Patterson and Connelly) with his newest book. It has all of the great, edge-of-your-seat action and suspense that you'd expect in a good thriller, and it kept me guessing to the very end. Fantastic read with an awesome detective duo-I couldn't put it down! Can't wait to read the next one! -by Katie on August 18, 2013
They thought their task was an easy one-take a week off, drive north through
Michigan's Lower and Upper Peninsulas, perhaps enjoy some Mackinaw fudge
on the way, claim a fabulous Sugar Island inheritance, and then go back home.
However, nothing ever comes easy for retired Chicago Homicide Detective
Jack Handler, and his daughter Kate, a well-respected New York City homicide
detective.

This latest adventure began when an attorney visited Kate at her Manhattan
precinct. He informed her that she had been named in her uncle's will to inherit
a successful resort less than ten miles from the Canadian border.

Not wanting to make the trip by herself, she invited her father to accompany
her, and he agreed. What she failed to tell him at first was that her uncle, whom
she had not seen for nearly thirty years, had been killed-and that his murder
had not been solved.

During the course of their visit, they found themselves pursued by agents of the
Department of Homeland Security, the FBI, Canadian Border Patrol, and by
local law enforcement. By the time they were ready to return, six more people
were killed, a thirteen year-old red haired freckle face boy had become an
integral part of their lives, and a twenty-year old crime got solved.
