Book Review: Toe The Line by Dick Hannah

Toe The Line
by Dick Hannah
Date Published: April 2012
Pages: 258
ISBN: 9781475079258

Wynn Johnston is a small business owner who actively participates in triathlons. He finds himself caught up in a homicide investigation after his best friend and business partner, Brian Wheeler, is murdered at the Sea-Tac Airport. As Wynn attempts to prove his innocence, a story unravels about his best friend and business that leaves Wynn feeling trapped, confused, and helpless. In the midst of all the madness, Wynn finds himself rekindling a romance with his ex-fiancé, Madison, that he felt was lost long ago. While Wynn slowly uncovers the truth behind Wheeler’s murder, his life is put into jeopardy.

For someone who has no interest in sports, I found myself completely wrapped up in this mystery that surrounded various triathletes. Dick Hannah has an inviting writer's voice that captures your attention with his descriptions of the characters and Pacific Northwest setting. Toe The Line is a suspenseful story that had me wondering who the guilty party was the entire time. I was fond of the main character, Wynn Johnston who juggled a plethora of nightmares and reacted to each one in a way that I found believable. I feel Hannah included just enough romance, thrills, murder, and athletic talk to make this novel a great read.
