9780692228678: Three-Ways: A Detectives Seagate and Miner Mystery (Volume 4)

When grad student Austin Sulenka is found strangled, nude on his bed, the first question for Seagate and Miner is whether it was an auto-asphyxiation episode gone bad. Evidence strewn around his small apartment suggests that he spent his last night with three or four women, each of whom had a motive to kill him. Later, when one of the women is pulled from the reservoir with a bullet in her brain, Seagate and Miner wonder which victim was the prime target--and whether there will be more. As Seagate and her partner try to unravel the complicated couplings, she finds herself in a three-way relationship that threatens to destroy her own fragile sobriety.

From the Author:

The Detectives Seagate and Miner Mystery series comprises six books:

  1. Big Sick Heart
  2. Deviations
  3. The Broken Saint
  4. Three-Ways
  5. Fractures
  6. The Reveal
Like the three previous books, Three-Ways is narrated by Detective Karen Seagate. She is 42, a recovering alcoholic who is trying to figure out how to deal with her disease, a by-the-books chief, a new boyfriend with his own attic full of emotional baggage, and a world that, in general, makes little sense. She wants to dislike her young partner, Ryan Miner, a cheerful Mormon with a wife and 2.5 kids, but with this, as with most of her goals, she fails.

Three-Ways is about the murder of Austin Sulenka, a graduate student who is a sex addict. Seagate and Miner start with the three women they know he had sex with on his last night on earth: his girlfriend, who charms every man with her striking beauty; a former student in his writing course who is still bitter because he reneged on the promise to give her a B if she slept with him; and his thesis adviser, who might have revealed to him a secret in her past that could destroy her career.

Investigating the various love and sex triangles that complicated the victim's short life, Karen Seagate finds herself in a three-way relationship that promises to jeopardize her own fragile sobriety.

Detective Karen Seagate is foul-mouthed, cynical, rude, depressed, and insubordinate. She lies constantly and assumes that most of what people say is untrue. She expects nothing good to happen to her and is rarely surprised. She's too high-maintenance for most men and for all bosses. Really, there would be no good reason for anyone to want to have anything to do with her--that is, if she were not extremely good at figuring out which liar is also a killer.

Average review on Amazon: 4.6

"The characters are captivating, some tugged at my heartstrings and others got under my skin. It's fast paced and kept me guessing until the end. If you're a mystery fan then you'll love this book and if you're not a fan of this genre this could be the book that converts you." -Amazon reviewer

"You will have a hard time finding a better way to entertain yourself with a book; this is fine summer reading." -Amazon reviewer

About the Author:

Mike Markel writes the Detectives Seagate and Miner Mystery series, which is set in the fictional small city of Rawlings, Montana, home of Central Montana State University. That university is somewhat like Boise State University, where Mike taught writing, but in Rawlings the weather is colder, the football team less successful, and the murder rate much, much higher.

Mike lives with his wife in Boise.
