A veteran Marine and an ex-convict find themselves on opposite sides of the law in this propulsive new thriller from award-nominated suspense master and "damn fine storyteller" Owen Laukkanen (Kirkus Reviews). Could your closest friend be a killer? When a body washes up outside Deception Cove, Washington, Jess Winslow-once a US Marine, now a trainee sheriff's deputy-is assigned to investigate. But when she realizes it's "Bad" Brock Boyd, a hometown celebrity lately fallen from grace, things become complicated. The last person seen with Boyd was her own boyfriend, Mason Burke. An ex-convict and newcomer in town, Mason is one of the only people who can understand Jess's haunting memories of her time in Afghanistan-and her love for Lucy, her devoted service dog. Finding one another in Deception Cove has been the best thing to happen to either of them in years. So Jess knows Mason could never be guilty of murder-doesn't she? As the facts of the case point ever more squarely at Mason, Jess must face that everything she thinks she knows about him might be wrong. A thrilling sequel to Deception Cove, and a heart-pounding adventure all its own, Lone Jack Trail pushes Jess and Mason to a shocking confrontation and will test everything they've come to love and trust in Deception Cove.    … (més)

This is the sequel (2nd in a series) to "Deception Cove," starring ex-Marine Jess Winslow and ex-convict Mason Burke, plus - and most importantly - their rescue dog Lucy. Once again, there are lots of unsavory characters causing a lot of mayhem in their little town, and the two set out to solve a murder mystery, even as Burke himself is being framed for it. Although not quite as propulsive as the first book, it's still quite good. I look forward to the next installment. ( )

Lone Jack Trail is an excellent sequel by Owen Laukkanen featuring ex-con Mason Burke, an ex-Marine Jess Winslow, and Lucy, their shared therapy rescue dog. In the first book, they took on the local corrupt police force, and Jess is now the local lawperson. Mason is helping to renovate Jess's house, which was wrecked along with a loner kid he has taken under wing. A local, wealthy hockey hero returns to town having been paroled from prison for a dog fighting conviction, and Mason's disdain is palpable and public (since Lucy was rescued from a dog fighting ring.) When "Bad" Boyd washes up dead on a local beach with a hole in his head, Mason becomes the prime subject, putting Jess in an tenable position. Then, a witness comes forward saying she heard them arguing and the murder weapon is found under the boat where Mason is living. Mason flees, and finds the witness with her throat slashed, bringing in the state police for a manhunt. Initially worried about her judgment, Jess knows Mason would not have killed a witness and sets off to find the culprit and motive, placing herself in grave danger again. 4.5 stars, recommended.

Note: Special thanks to Hatchett Book Group for providing a complimentary copy for me to read. ( )

4-1/2 stars, actually... fairly good read. A little thin in places, but one of the better books I've read this year. ( )

Same Same but Different
Review of the Mulholland Books audiobook edition (2020) released simultaneously with the hardcover

I really enjoyed Owen Laukkanen's first Neah Bay/Burke & Winslow thriller Deception Cove (2019). Admittedly that was largely due to my being a sucker for great dog stories and pitbull mix Lucy, the rescue dog turned emotional support animal, was therefore a big part of that. Lucy played the role of bringing ex-con Mason Burke together with PTSD survivor ex-Marine Jess Winslow. Note also that Lone Jack Trail is often a spoiler for events in Deception Cove so it is best to read the latter as your first outing if you are interested.

Lone Jack Trail felt somewhat limited by its environment, in that how many far-reaching conspiracies can there be in a small coastal community within the space of a few months? Here we have good-guy redeemed convict Burke framed for a crime by unknown forces and of course Winslow (with Lucy still there, yeah!) setting out to prove his innocence despite the evidence stacked against him. It of course leads to another showdown. Still, I love these characters and I hope Laukkanen continues with them. A small town mystery would be ideal, it doesn't have to be a major conspiracy every time.

The narration by Courtney Patterson (female voices) and Kevin Stillwell (male voices) was excellent. The same narrators were also the performers in the Deception Cove audiobook. ( )
