Another fantastic story in this series about Sheriff Hank Worth in Branson, MO. A catastrophic explosion at a local fireworks company leaves many locals dead. While the morgue is being readied, mistakes by the recently deceased medical examiner are found in the processing of recent bodies. Eventually, many cases will be reopened, but Hank is only concerned with the short shrift his mother-in-law Marian may have received when it comes to light that she was poisoned. Hank's look into the past is hard, the cost to his family is great. All parts move together to have both investigations at the forefront. Sam's growth throughout the series is one of many amazing touches the author uses so successfully.… (lisätietoja)

As Dangerous Consequences: A Sheriff Hank Worth Mystery by Claire Booth begins, the ripple effects of the recent termination of several deputies, continue. New staff is being brought in while some of the still employed old guard continue to work from within against Sheriff Hank Worth and Chief Deputy Sheila Turley. The rot within the department still lingers, but getting rid of the rest of the folks who need to go is not going to be easy.

A far more immediate issue is the recent spate of emergency cases in the local hospital. Sheriff Worth’s wife, Maggie McCleary, is a doctor and personally knows of a couple situations that troubled her. She did some quiet investigating on her own and identified at least ten cases of elderly patients who have to be treated in the last month for dehydration and other issues. All were tourists. All were part of various tour groups. Whether it is all a massive coincidence or something the Sheriff’s department as well as Branson City Police Department should be looking at, she does not know. She does now something is not right and she is worried.

So, she brought what has been happening to her husband. Like those of us who were lucky to have been married to a very smart women and caring woman, Sheriff Worth knows Maggie is almost never wrong. If she believes something is going on, it most certainly is happening. The real question is why it is happening, who is involved besides the elderly victims, and how to stop it before more are imperiled and somebody dies.

These storylines and others combine into another excellent installment with Dangerous Consequences. A Sheriff Hank Worth Mystery by Claire Booth. As in the preceding books, ongoing character development and storyline arcs continue, so it is best to have read the preceding books. Mystery, action, and the occasional laugh out loud funny moment make this read, and the series, one of my favorites. Highly recommended.

My reading copy came from the author with no expectation of a review.

This is such a marvelous series and this one was great. The characters and sense of place are outstanding--smallish town Branson, MO, with its' tourists and big city problems has been a good vehicle for these mysteries. Sheriff Hank Worth capably leads his department while second in command Shelia is tasked with HR and overtime issues. Young cop Sam has his own rookie in this book and it has been fun to follow his growth to someone who can train a new cop. Hank's wife is an emergency room doctor and asks Hank to look into the rise in elderly admits to emergency from tour groups. Meanwhile, a hit and run turns into a murder investigation and the twists and coincidences kept me reading and guessing until the end.… (lisätietoja)
