    1. I do enjoy the Martinez series. Steve, the half Lakota deputy, is running for Sheriff at the behest of Alex, his state trooper friend, and several others in the county. He’s been quite successful in clearing some murder cases and has developed a reputation. Someone is now leaving headless and handless cadavers in assorted places. It’s a bizarre scheme involving geocaching. A bit weird. There really isn’t much of a mystery, it’s more of a police procedural, and it’s quite clear who the [...]

    2. A very different mystery (in a good way)! I'd never heard of geocaching and the explanations were clear and easy to grasp. I just love Steve Martinez and I really loved the last chapter of the book - very touching.

    3. [Three 1/2 stars] When I recently remarked to a writer-friend who writes a mystery series based in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, “But you’re the only one who writes about the U.P right?,” he gave me a long, meaningful gaze. You know, the kind of gaze that makes you realize you’ve just said something really stoopid. So I did some online researching. Yeah. I did say something stoopid.I got a list of U.P. authors, a very long list, I might add, and among them was Henry Kisor. My writer-frie [...]

    4. Cache is the third in a series featuring Deputy Steve Martinez a Lakota Indian who was raised by a Methodist preacher in upstate New York but who found a home and a career in Upper Peninsula Michigan.The "cache" of the title is a play on the hook for the novel's plot: the modern day treasure hunt hobby of geocaching. When Martinez finds a headless body wrapped in a plastic bag he has no idea that it will connect him to this burgeoning hobby and prove to be one of his most difficult, and dangerou [...]

    5. I liked it okay overall but the logical leap the lead character makes from corpses to caches is just what it says in the book (and I paraphrase) "a coincidence that only happens in dime-store mysteries."The character was refering to a different aspect of it, but it holds true anyway.If the coded numbers had been deciphered beforehand least enough to know the digits and the sequence, then maybe the leap would have made more sense, but not the way things happend in the book. At the point in the st [...]

    6. A mystery based on a rogue geocaching event with dead bodies serving as the caches. The angle was intriguing and there was a lot of hiking and description of outdoors. However, the characterization was flat and the writing style very plain and straightforward. The last chapter was a tying up of all the ends – very formulaic mystery.

    7. Okay, I admit it was the squirrel holding a spent cartridge on the cover that got my attention. I am not a fan of first person narrative, and this was rather slow going for the first half of the book. However, once it got moving, it kept on at a good clip. Some good ideas & characters. Plus it's set in Michigan, which is kind of cool.

    8. Very Good; Continuing character: Steve Martinez; bodies are turning up in the U.P. and seem tied to a "geocaching" contest; while dealing with that Martinez is also running to unseat the current sheriff

    9. This is a story about something called geocaching. I'd never heard of it. You hide something in a place with a specific satelite coordinance. Then you give clues so people can locate it and add to it. Only there is a twist to this story. The Caches are bodies. A good mystery and quick read.

    10. I really enjoyed this mystery because it contained geocaching, a murder mystery, Native slants on life, and an upper Midwest background.

    11. I continue to like the core stories, but some of the asides are repetitive, really obvious, and really get in the way of the flow of the story.

    12. This is a three star mystery, light and entertaining. I uprated it because of the author's descriptions of the setting in the upper peninsula of Michigan.

    13. Really enjoyed this book. Readers of the Longmire series would like this series as well. Great characters, some humor & likeable main characters. I'll have to find more books by Mr. Kisor!

    14. Okay book. Not so great of a mystery. Seems like a series that could develop into something good. Characters are a little 2 dimensional at the moment.

    15. read 12.06.07This is the first book I've read by this author. It was well written and moved along well; no boring parts. I'll definitely read his other books.
