Full Circle by Kevin E. Hatt is a mystery novel about a character named Haszard who tends to get mixed up in situations that are odd and puzzling and Full Circle definitely follows suit with that. When Haszard is asked by a friend to look into the death of a friend of theirs who was allegedly in two places at once he knows that on a level he should say no but he decides to get involved thinking it to be rather a simple thing. Turns out things are way deeper than they appear and that they only get stranger the deeper he goes and tries to uncover the mystery behind what really happened. In the end...will things come...full circle?
When I first started reading this book I was really hopeful. I'm a huge fan of mystery novels and thought that this book would be a great fit and with the cover design on it it really looked intriguing as well. Now this book has it's good elements that draw you in moments but the book never really fully pulled me in like I would have liked for it to. Haszard is a fun character overall and there is definitely humor in this story which made me laugh out loud at some of the things that he said. But sometime the story was a bit hard to follow as it would get a bit convoluted. Now the problem may have been with the lack of...editing...because there are a ton of places of where the worlds literally all run together and you have to stop and back track and reread what you just read in order for it to make sense which was not something I enjoyed doing to be honest. But as the story starts getting closer to the end that's when things begin to come together and pick up speed. All in all I think that with a few tweaks here and there this book could be improved and be made more enjoyable. This is a good mystery novel and Haszard is definitely a unique character who has a personality all is own.
Overall I give this book 3.5 out of 5 stars. I liked it but I think that it needs a bit of work.
This book started out seeming to be reminiscent of old noir private detective novels. It quickly devolved into a story where the leading man "jokingly" says terribly sexual and\or harassing things to the female characters. The only character that stands up to him "comes around" halfway through the book.
At one point, the story foreshadows by having the yet unknown main bad guy say, "what if it is the whole town?" It was so obvious that it felt like the book sabotaged itself. To make matters worse, the supposedly genius main character doesn't notice it. Sherlock Holmes he is not.
This is a book that men might be amused by, but it is crude none the less. Add to that a plot that feels like a poor man's "Da Vinci Code."
It is beyond me how this is the most recent addition to a long running series.
So when Suzie, a mutual friend of Grace and Haz, asked Haz to look into the mysterious death of her brother Dean Haz can’t say “no” in spite of Sabrina’s initial skepticism. When they find that Dean may have been murdered by a group practicing ancient Druid rituals of human sacrifice, the call to find the truth becomes too much for either of them to bear. What they encounter involves several small towns and a large number of people none of whom want them poking around and are willing to take whatever steps are necessary to discourage their investigation.
Full Circle is a well written narrative first person narrative. Haszard, as the narrator, is almost too detailed at times, but seems to make jumps at other times. Nevertheless, the story is easy to follow and a bit tedious since it takes place over a period of days among the normal activities, such as work, of Haz and Sabrina’s life. The other characters are believable and more than willing to help up to a point. Grace, who has no real part in the story other than as a delightful distraction manages to catalyze the action through her antics by bringing Haz into contact into certain people at just the right time to provide key information essential to the story.
Full Circle should be enjoyed by readers of cozy mysteries who love nail-biting threats of danger without actually having to see the characters face it. It is entertaining, sometimes humorous, and a great choice for a winter read in front of crackling fire.
