Jack MacKay narrates what it’s like to work with Fiona, his fetching wife, in putting together the pieces of the puzzle of two crisscross murders discovered just in the midst of Halloween.
The complexities of marriage are subtly touched in Jack McCormac’s latest venture, Fetching Fiona and the Sketching Detective Solve the Crisscross Murders. Barely the tip of the iceberg, the partnership of the MacKay detectives signify just what a working tandem should be --- balanced and obliging. Fiona’s persistence shines brilliantly as revelations unfold, perfectly matching the lax hesitance of Jack to indulge in the search as deeply as his wife does.
Not to veer away from the theme, various aspects of mystery are also traversed, as each chapter offers insights into the occurrence of the two murders, aptly putting into detail the probable scenarios fit for each of them. McCormac puts together descriptive chronicles with the right dose of humour and comicality, without letting loose on the gravity of the small town dilemma.
