Mercy Falls

b Mercy Falls by William Kent Krueger: Again, it sort of sucks to be married/related to the main character of a mystery series.  Anyway, there's a really grisly murder, and Cork must figure out what the heck is going on. 

Eventually, they will run out of past loves for his wife, but, until then, they're always an interesting thing to throw in the mix.  Twisted family relationships and people who don't really understand love, a lot of suspects, and a sort-of mob boss make this one pretty wild. 

The author starts the book off with a present tense amnesiac scene prologue and then goes way back and then takes you up that point where events unfold very differently from the first perception you have starting the book cold.  In an interesting twist, this book ends on, well, not exactly a cliff-hanger, but there is no real resolution the way there has been in the past.
