This book starts out a little slow – and confusing. I can only assume that the author did this because the book is the first in a series and he wanted to properly introduce his characters. However, if the reader sticks with it, it gets much more exciting and action-packed.
We meet Manny Williams and his wife Louise as they embark on a Caribbean cruise on the Ocean Duchess along with several other members of the Lansing (Michigan) Police Department. Louise is awaiting results of her mammogram and she and Manny told one another that they wouldn’t open the results until they returned from their trip.
But a serial killer is loose. He appears to be on the same ship as Manny and his team. As people start getting viciously murdered, the FBI is called in and with the aid of a San Juan Island detective Perez they begin to search for the killer.
Several murders later, the detectives have the killer cornered. But it seems too easy.
Sophie, Sophie, I just didn’t like her at all. She has a bad attitude and doesn’t know when to keep her smart comments to herself. She was the only member of the team that I didn’t like. The others got along well and worked together nicely.
This book is well written and plotted. It is a very nice debut mystery and I was pleasantly surprised at its strength. After a brief delay at the start of the book, the suspense started out with a bang and increased dramatically until the denouement. The author even puts in a big surprise at the end. This is an explosive read that will keep you entertained and reading on past your bedtime. Mr. Murcer is a talented writer and I look forward to reading more of his books.
Overall it’s not a bad read, nor is it great. I lost credibility of the plot when the tour guide became one of Peppercorn’s victims. Who was going to drive the tour bus back to the boat?
There are a lot of bodies in this one and they are, to say the least, brutally murdered. If you have a weak stomach, this isn’t for you.
The ending wasn’t bad but it took on shades of Hannibal from “Silence of the Lambs” with a minor twist.
Spoiler alert. There is more than one murderer lurking in the shadows. Peppercorn’s doctor has taken on a separate identity and is his patients double. Reminded me of an NCIS episode where the patient is locked up but his work keeps showing up.
I wouldn’t call this a detective novel as much as a “catch-me-if-you-can” read.
So when the friends and family members are added to the horrific killing spree, Detective Manny Williams, and an odd on-board investigative team, begins to hunt the relentless killer down, attempting to figure out the murderer's identity, and why the Lansing group is being brutally targeted.
Bodies continue to pile up each day as the story twists and turns, while thousands of passengers are trapped on this huge ship in the middle of the Caribbean Sea.
Forget about sleeping when you start Caribbean Moon. Rick Murcer has written a book you should buy today.
Caribbean Moon by Rick Murcer is a chilling thriller that follows in great detail the procedures of a pair of tough cops as they race against time to find a vicious killer. At the same time, the author does a good job of taking the reader into the mind, not only of the killer, but the cops on his tail.
A first-rate read that will keep you on the edge of your seat.
