Review by Sheila Sobel

After sinking the putt of a lifetime, Mary Hale is dead. The explosion that killed her left little evidence. The assassin that killed her left behind one obscure clue. Detective Roger Viceroy and his Midwest Region Special Crimes Unit team have virtually nothing to help them solve her murder. Tension builds as the assassin strikes again and again. The killings appear to be random because each murder is different, but Viceroy soon discovers that every crime scene contains a similar, solitary clue. The killer is clever and highly motivated. He thwarts and teases Viceroy and the Special Crimes Unit with each new victim. As Viceroy and his team piece together the puzzle, they uncover the thread that binds the crimes—Curwood, Wisconsin, a sleepy little town with a dark, hidden past. Viceroy, believing that Governor Kay Spurgeon is the next target, is up against a ticking clock. Give Place to Wrath will leave the reader wanting a quick release of a second book in the series.

After three decades as a professional sports business executive across the NBA, NFL, and MLB, Steven C. Harms has knocked it out of the park with his debut novel, Give Place to Wrath by combining sports with a police procedural. He resides in Oxford, Michigan, a rural suburb of Detroit.
