It had been a long and harsh winter. Wes had been so looking forward to spring and the much warmer weather. Not only with the rebirth of the trees and flowers but was Wes’ promise to Marti, the love of his life, to not stray from his Workman’s Comp Fraud investigations as he had in the past. As far as Wes was concerned, it was a new year and a new leaf and there were plenty of fraud cases on the top shelf of his desk to keep him busy.

To complicate both Wes and Marti’s lives, Christopher Andrew Legget showed up one day and insisted he had the skills, the knowledge, and where with all to become Wes’ newest investigating collaborator, not that Wes wanted or needed one. From the beginning, Christopher Andrew Legget did nothing but hampered as well as become a nuisance during Wes’ investigations.

Finally, the perfect spring Saturday of the year had arrived and it was time to bring life to “The Bird”. Neither Wes nor Oz, his four-legged buddy, knew by the end of the day the sequence of events was about to unfold and their worlds would start to unravel. Once again, they must come to the rescue of a friend.

Time was of the essence as danger lurked close by. Suspects were willing to kill just to keep their secrets from being exposed. Wes must go undercover in a world of unfamiliarity to flush out the true killer(s). With each passing day, it becomes more perilous as he risks his life to save a friend. Wes was not alone, thank goodness, as Oz would be close by to make sure nothing happened to his meal ticket.


The Chrome Canyon Killer is the 4th installment in the Wes and Oz series. In the new book we are introduced to Christopher who is dying to be Wes's new partner in solving his fraud cases. After an accident with "The Bird" Wes is forced to head to the junk yard to find a part so that the girls can fix it. He never expected that a trip with Chris would land him in the middle of a new case involving a body. 

Wes needs to find the killer to save his friend's nephew from taking the blame for something he didn't do. With the unwanted help of Christopher tagging along Wes had more help than he knows what to do with. Marti is less than thrilled that Wes is smack dab in the middle of another case but he has to help Dave out. Will they catch the killer before it's too late? 

Another brilliant installment in the Wes and Oz Adventures. A captivating story, enchanting character and a mystery that keeps you on your toes till the very end. One of the best books I read in 2022. The author has done a beautiful job creating another adventure that just draws the reader in. I couldn't put it down I just had to see what would happen next to Wes as his partner kept him on his toes. I can't wait for the next installment to see what happens next.
