The MacGuffin by Michael Craft

Book Description:
A cold-case murder fifteen years ago halted promising developments in the quest for clean energy when the rumored prototype of a groundbreaking water engine was stolen or destroyed. Now the race is on to repower America, and Cooper Brant, still grieving that long-ago murder of his father, suddenly finds his family visited by a second violent death, raising the stakes to unearth lost secrets. When Coop discovers how the two crimes are linked, a grim message becomes clear. He’s next.

My Thoughts:
I enjoyed this book.  Coop is taking over his father-in-law's company.  It is changing over to alternative energy from oil.  He used to be a known architect but now is 'given' jobs by his wife's family.  Bix Emery has his whole family involved in his business and has them sitting comfortable in life.  Coop finds himself being asked questions about the still tender but long ago murder of his father by the original investigator.  When another murder strikes his family, he realizes there is a connection...
I thought the premis for this book was cool.  A guy who has moved on with his life, working to solve the fifteen year old mystery of his father's murder.  Coop was a great character.  I loved Bix and Pyrite (his dog).  There were several twists and turns along with plenty of mystery!
I rate it a 4/5.  It is a good mystery/suspense.
