Victoria Houston is the author of the popular Loon Lake mystery series featuring female Chief of Police Lewellyn ("Lew") Ferris and retired dentist Paul ("Doc") Osbourne, both of whom love to go fly fishing when they aren't trying to catch a killer. Dead Tease, the latest book in the series, finds Lew and Doc investigating the stabbing death of Jen Williams, an attractive 26 year old who had been having an affair with the local hospital's married CEO. When Lew and Doc take a much needed break from the investigation to go fly fishing from kayaks, they find themselves in a life-and-death situation on the river.
Houston's Loon Lake books are noted for their portrayal of rural Wisconsin life and the quirky characters who live there. Other recent books in the mystery series include Dead Deceiver, Dead Renegade, and Dead Hot Shot. Houston grew up in Rhinelander, Wisconsin, where she now lives and writes. She has worked in public relations, written nonfiction as well as fiction, and has three children. And, yes, she enjoys fishing.
