The Swedish Days Swindle, penned by author J. B. Michaels, is a work of fiction in the murder mystery sub-genre, and it is aimed at all ages. A Mac and Millie Mystery series novel, the story takes place during a warm summer in Geneva as the titular protagonists Mac and Millie attempt to enjoy the main event of the summer: Swedish Days. Their date is scuppered by the discovery of a body in the river, the investigation of which leads to evidence of a theft in the planning. As the Swedish Days event reaches the evening, the entire Chamber of Commerce is set to fall victim to an audacious swindle. What results is a highly exciting and intriguing adventure.
Author J. B. Michaels has crafted a mystery novel that is suitable for readers of all sensibilities, yet delivers a convincing and realistic plot line amid its many entertaining scenes and charming prose. The summertime setting of Geneva is superbly atmospheric thanks to the author’s choice of descriptive language, and I particularly admired the use of dialogue as a major exposition tool rather than having reams of unnecessary explanation in the prose itself. This is the mark of an intelligent mystery writer who has crafted an excellently paced story. The central characters Mac and Millie are well-considered and fleshed out as heroes that readers will find endearing to follow through their exploits. Overall, I would definitely recommend The Swedish Days Swindle to mystery readers seeking an immersive story from an accomplished writer.
