Review

In this procedural, police cast a wide net in their hunt for a fisherman; reeling in drug traffickers and money launderers becomes a bonus of the search. Shanisha "Shane" Notfarg is the only female detective and, she emphasizes, "black as well" in the homicide section of the San Diego sheriff's office. Shane doesn't like working missing person cases. She thinks they waste department resources because the majority of the people being tracked turn up on their own after an affair or a trip to Las Vegas. Mobile home realtor and resident Arthur "Art" Flynn, affable and recently divorced, proves the exception. Paying his multiple sclerosis-stricken neighbor, Mary Smith, to feed his cat and clean his home while he vacations at a fishing camp, Flynn never returns. In the seven years it takes to solve the case of the missing middle-aged man, Shane discovers he blew the whistle on a money-laundering scheme. The realtor's actions may have led to his demise--if he truly is dead. Even though police identify probable murder suspects and evidence shows that the trunk of Flynn's abandoned car once held a corpse with the realtor's DNA, no body has been discovered. Although the absent Flynn drives the book, so vivid is the author's characterization of him that readers should feel the vanished man is present. Muir (The Numbers Man, 2010, etc.) also richly details Flynn's trailer park neighbors and fellow fishermen, but the true standout is Shane, dogged in closing the case. In her 50s, nearly 6 feet tall, and still the object of flirting, she finds that intimidation tactics come to her as easily as her quick identification of a Max Mara wool dress or a Gucci crocodile bag ("Yes, we women notice these things even if we can't afford them"). The author writes authoritatively about police work; dialogue is credible; and an intricate plotline should keep readers guessing. ...Don't let this engaging story of a missing fisherman be the one that got away. KIRKUS BOOK REVIEW

I really enjoyed, What Happened to Flynn, an intriguing tale featuring headstrong female homicide detective, Shane Notfarg. Despite her initial dismay at being assigned a missing person's case, Detective Notfarg, realizes the case is much more complex than first anticipated and eventually, the missing person's case turns into a complex murder case. The story immediately pulled me in and kept me captivated and wondering what was going to happen next. It dragged a little in the middle but then picked up full force towards the end, unraveling more criminals and more plot twists. It was an easy read and a great book for a nice relaxing day. Author, Pat Muir, did an excellent job of blending strength and vulnerability in the character of Shane, making her both likable and relatable. You can't help but respect her. However, the book itself lacks a certain depth. It is filled with details of the cases in a way that almost seems like reading a police report. Despite that critique this was a really good detective novel with an array of interesting characters. The plot twists will keep you guessing until the end. Veronica Townson

This is an excellent mystery, full of twists and turns with the strands of the story woven into a unified, satisfying whole. It starts with an interesting disappearance/possible murder, one with unusual facts that don't seem to fit together, and leads the reader on a real roller coaster ride involving drug dealers, identity theft, money laundering, hit men and child pornography. At the end, it all makes sense and ties together wonderfully. The major strength of the book is the protagonist, Shane Notfarg, extremely good at what she does, relentless in her pursuit of justice, but not without flaws and quirks. Jefferson--First Editing.
