Travel Guide

Kennesha county, Wisconsin

The town of is fictional but set firmly in Kennesha County which is  not a nice rural setting as you might expect from a Jeffery Deaver landscape. However this one has more problems than most:

Even here in Kennesha, a county with the sparse population of 34,021, meth was a terrible scourge. The users, tweakers were ruthless, crazed and absolutely desperate to ge the produce; cookers felt exactly the same about the huge profits they made. More murders were attributed to meth than coke, heroin, pot and alcohol combined.

The remote cabin on the banks of Lake Mondac (fictional)

The lake squatted in the middle of Marquette State Park, also creepy. Nearest town was Clausen six miles from the lake. He didn’t know the town but assumed it was like a thousand others in Wisconsin: A gas station, a grocery store that sold as much beer as milk and a restaurant that was harder to find that the local meth cooker”

Lake Mondac is described as a blue pebble, surrounded by a small amount of private land and engulfed by Marquette Park. Imagine all that land, all those trees, all those hiding places and all those shadows and noises that only seem to haunt the woods at night…
