The mystery is well woven throughout, I won’t give anything away here, but there are several viable suspects who all could have committed the murder. This reminds me of a locked room type mystery. Where the victim is found dead, with no trace of a murder weapon and no way a murderer (one of any in the room that night) could have got in or out. Lavrisa skillfully handles the many intricate elements of the mystery to keep readers guessing all the while keeping the pace brisk and engaging.
Furthermore, José is hiding a secret of his own, which is woven nicely throughout the book. Until he is forced to look at who he is and why he can no longer keep the secret. Very well done. I highly recommend Killing with Kings, even if you have not read the three books proceeding it, this book easily stands alone like the others do (although I recommend reading all of them
This is an interesting book, somewhere between a cozy mystery and a standard mystery. The protagonist is a professional and male, not unheard of in a cozy, but unlikely. He does have pets, a dog and a cat. This murder is not a case assigned him by the police but one he investigates on his own; very little description of blood or violence. The theme of Jose's homosexuality runs through the book, but not obnoxiously or graphically. The characters are well-defined. The plot was tricky, but well thought-out. The crime was declared finally a crime and solved. The author did a good job updating the reader so not having read the earlier books is not a hindrance. All-in-all this leads to a recommendation for this book. It's got lots going for it.
Killing With Kings, was a relatively quick read; it had an interesting mystery, it took us through all the steps necessary to solve the crime, and it was personal enough for us to get to know and have empathy for several of the characters.
I was given a free ARC of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review.
The characters are quite well described and believable, although I did find that apart from the main 2 or 3 characters the descriptions of the rest were quite superficial, which is a shame as some of them came across as potentially quite interesting. This may be due to this being the 4th book in the series, but the first that I have read, so the more detailed descriptions may have already been covered in the earlier books.
The plot was clever with several potential suspects, and the guilty party hidden successfully until the end.
There was quite a lot of action for a cosy mystery which made it a more exciting read than most 'cosies' and therefore potentially widens its readership.
Overall a good read and I will read some more from this author. I received an Advanced Reader Copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
received the promotion over Jose’. Ray is a brash, loud mouth, in your face bully that no one likes. So when Ray, who has an allergy to peanuts, drops dead at a friendly poker game, no one is really too broken up and his death is dismissed as an unfortunate accident.
Jose’ is not as ready to dismiss Ray’s death as accidental and trying to prove otherwise, along with Ray’s niece, Nowak makes this fast paced book an entertaining read.
There is also an underlying story line regarding Jose’ whose American-Cuban heritage and his still secret life style causes him some discomfort. This part of the book was handled well and I will go back to read the other books in this series to learn more regarding the cast of characters from Sweetwater, Ga. I received an ARC for my honest review.
