Jelly's Gold (Rushmore McKenzie) by David Housewright


Rushmore McKenzie, rich ex-cop, is asked by an old female friend to help out with a special treasure hunt... To find the lost gold of thirties gangster Frank Nash. When people starts dying McKenzie learns everybody wants the gold and some people will do anything to get it.
Not only is this the story of McKenzie's hunt but also an interesting look at the St. Paul of the 1930's, a very interesting time for those interested in crime.
David does a good job in mixing this story (via letters, historical documents and eyewitness accounts) with McKenzie's investigation.
As always McKenzie is a very likable hero, always trying to what's right, living up to his personal code like Spenser does. In fact, for those who are tiring of reading the same Spenser-story over and over again this might be a great change of pace. Also, kudos to David for telling a PI-story without the more standard plots like looking for a missing child or standard homicides.

Everything posted made a lot of sense. But, think on this,
suppose you added a little content? I mean, I don't wish to tell you how to run your blog, however what if you added something that makes people desire more? I mean "Jelly's Gold (Rushmore McKenzie) by David Housewright" is kinda boring. You might glance at Yahoo's home page and watch how they create article headlines to get viewers to open the links. You might try adding a video or a related picture or two to grab readers excited about what you've written. Just my opinion, it would make your website a little livelier.

I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own blog and was wondering what all is needed to get set up? I'm assuming having a blog
like yours would cost a pretty penny? I'm not very web savvy so I'm not 100% positive.
Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated.
Cheers
