    One thought on “Boondoggle”

    1. When I first started reading Mark Rapacz' Boondoggle (280 Steps), I did not have a good feeling. I did not want this book to go all cliché on me — if I wanted something like that I'd watch an Angelina Jolie movie. But it didn't take Rapacz to show me that wasn't going to happen. Note: I should have a little more trust in the publisher 280 Steps.Mack, the main character, has joined a company that kills mosquitos in Minnesota. He is an aimless twenty-something, grieving over his father's sudde [...]

    2. Chasing insects in the swamps of Minnesota isn’t really a difficult job, but crack mosquito eradicator Mack Harrison can’t help wondering about all those murdered girls that keep turning up. Mack might not be the most ambitious guy around, but he’s starting to think that he should do something- even if not doing much of anything has worked pretty well so far.

    4. I really enjoyed this book although I must admit I was a bit disappointed with the rather untidy finale. There's lots of dialogue, both funny and poignant. Rapacz is a great storyteller and I'll be keeping an eye out for new tales from him.

    5. What a subject for a mystery, and boy, does it work. This doesn't have the neat and tidy ending, but I'd love to see it have room for a series. The characters are interesting and intriguing. The author's cutting humor doesn't demean you and is so dry and relatable. For example, Mack realized it took more work to look like you were working than to just do your job in the first place. "If he wasn't the first suspect in a school shooting, he'd be the first one they'd question." "He didn't just make [...]
