Kidnapped by a grifter who has been using his identity in an elaborate con that has devastated an entire South Dakota community, retired cop and millionaire Rushmore McKenzie finds himself at the mercy of angry and desperate townspeople who have nothing left to lose. By the Edgar Award-winning author of Madman on a Drum.

McMillan Palgrave
In David Housewright's The Taking of Libbie, SD, a grifter cons an entire town using Mac McKenzie’s name, leaving the real McKenzie facing an angry town with nothing left to lose.
Rushmore McKenzie is a retired cop, an unexpected millionaire, and an occasional unlicensed private investigator. So, it isn’t the biggest surprise in the world when he’s attacked and kidnapped from his home—McKenzie has more than a few enemies out there with a grudge against him. But it is a surprise when it turns out his kidnapping is a case of mistaken identity.

McKenzie was taken to the small plains town of Libbie, South Dakota which just lost pretty much everything it had to a con man using McKenzie’s name. Using a scam involving a new shopping mall, the grifter apparently stole all the money electronically from the bank then disappeared, leaving behind a devastated town full of people with many reasons to hate him. To that list of enemies, he’s just added McKenzie who is now determined to help the devastated townspeople, as well as catch and punish the weasel besmirching his reputation.

This was a good fast read. I like David Housewright's writing and this book was a little different than his usual. Still Rushmore McKenziie and the ending wasn't completely clear until the end. It was all wrapped up nicely.
