May 18, 2009              Murder In Okoboji   Paperback by Peter Davidson and Beverly Peterson.  Richie Lee is mentioned in this book.
"Murder In Okoboji," a new book by Peter Davidson, is the story of greed, deceit, mystery and murder. In this tale, things are rarely what they appear to be and there are many surprises as the story unfolds. The story is set in the Okoboji resort area of Iowa and includes many actual businesses and real people. This was a very fun book to read. Lots of twists and turns as the story progresses. As the description says, things are often not as they appear to be. In fact, almost nothing is as it appears to be, which made reading the story great fun as there was one surprise after another. The story is set in the Okoboji resort area of Iowa and that there are many real people included in the story along with some fictional characters. Murder In Okoboji is available at many retailers including Barnes and Noble, through amazon.com and barnesandnoble.com.
