Escaping the pressures of big-city policing, Maxine Benson is happy to be appointed police chief in the resort town of Port Ainslie.

Max's biggest challenge is to overcome skepticism at her ability to deal with major crimes—like the murder of Billy Ray Edwards. Few people mourn Billy Ray's passing. He was a bully and was also intent on derailing the biggest development project in the town's history. But murder's murder, and Max is ready to solve it on her own and prove her worth to the townspeople. And maybe even to herself.

"[A] neat little mystery Reynolds and his intrepid heroine wrap up within a single day."
– Kirkus Reviews
"A Murder for Max is strong...readers will hope that there will be a long line of Maxine Benson mysteries. Recommended."
