Drifter John Walker has no friends, but hes so engaging that Maxie invites him over for dinner. The next day he moves on-and is later found dead in his motel room. What looks like a simple suicide quickly grows more complicated when police discover that Walker was living under an assumed identity. Maxie tries to fathom why he would choose to end his life where the US highway system ends—and where Maxie just might meet a dead end of her own.

Listener Opinions

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Janis | 2/19/2014

    " I'm sorry. I thought this would be a really good book - I love camping - I love Alaska, but I just could not get pulled into the story. I did not finish this book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jenny | 2/10/2014

    " This is a Maxie (a female senior citizen) and Stretch (a mini-dachshund) mystery. Maxie is spending winter at her home in Homer, Alaska, and becomes involved in a stranger's supposed suicide. I especially liked when she visited her friend, Jessie Arnold (a musher from another mystery series by this same author). A quick read, good characters, and wonderful descriptions of Alaska. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Grace | 2/9/2014

    " This was a decent book. However, sometimes you can tell when an author has a story to tell, but it isn't a very long one. There was definite padding to this story. It was a close to 200 page book that really was probably a 100-page story. Maybe. But she met her publishing contract's requirements for book output, I'm sure! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Vickie | 1/27/2014

    " This cozy mystery was just a little bit too cozy. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Anne | 1/20/2014

    " Another interesting mystery about 60-ish Maxie and her dachshund stretch. This one concerns a drifyer she meets on the beach and on impulse invites to a friendly dinner the next night. The next day he is found dead. of course Maxie cannot resist delving into his life and strange background which seems to not be there st all. Enjoyable and easy read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dee | 12/10/2013

    " This was a quick, fun read. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Sierra crosby | 9/22/2013

    " There was nothing wrong with what I did read of this book, The story was fine, the writing decent, I just couldn't get into it. I didn't care for the over description by the author. I thought it took away from the book, by describing everything it fails to give me the chance to imagine it myself. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sherry | 8/24/2013

    " A very slow book that never quite grabbed me, I'm afraid. It seemed to be more about dinners with friends than mystery and mayhem. This is my first Maxie and Stretch mystery, and I was disappointed since I enjoy Ms. Henry's other series so much "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jan | 8/8/2013

    " A delightful quick read about a "little drinking village with a fishing problem". The usual characters make an appearance during Maxie's latest involvement with dead people. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Audrey | 8/2/2013

    " It was a light read and I didn't really get pulled into the story. But I did like the casual feeling of being among friends. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Debby | 7/23/2013

    " This is a well-written, cozy Alaskan mystery with likable characters and a nice little twist. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laura Mancini | 5/24/2013

    " I'm a bit disappointed in this book, maybe I find more excitement when Maxie goes "on the road". I enjoy experiencing the differences in people as Maxie Rvs' along our U.S. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tig | 5/1/2013

    " This book was okay, nothing to get excited about. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Barbara | 3/23/2013

    " Listening on CD-Really enjoyed this CD. Good mystery set in Alaska. All the characters were likable and a nice cozy story interwoven around the mystery re friendships, etc. Will read more of Sue Henry; even sat in the car to hear the ending!! I wish I could give it a 3.75! "

    " It features a Dachshund! I enjoy this series, well written. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nikki | 10/31/2011

    " Reading Sue Henry's books always makes me feel that I'm among friends. This one made me a little sad as she mentioned several times how old Stretch is getting, how he's slowing down, and how much she's going to miss him soon. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 David Foster | 9/18/2011

    " We recently got a new dog ie. miniature dachshund like Stretch. I had to read this story. Much enjoyed although a little "chatty" and in the first person which always seems a cop out. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Leila | 6/11/2011

    " I wasn't disappointed in the story only the length - too short!! "
