Review: Deadly Places by Terry Odell

Ed is currently Acting Police Chief in small town Mapleton.  so now he has to juggle a lot of extra duties that he would rather not like a roaming bear and a tabloid style reporter.

The case he is investigating involves the suspicious deaths (likely murders) of Dead Beat Dads and the connection to what seems like an innocuous blog.  As the investigation ramps up, Ed sets himself up as a target and with the help of a crack team of cops, the bait is taken.

I really enjoyed this story.  The cop work was solid and the demands of his position were interesting.  I liked that he was not a lone gun cop - he worked with his team to get deeper into the web.  He was smart and anticipated.  I like smart police stories and this one really worked.
