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
While I started this book with trepidation (I prefer to start a series at book one and not boo four), but that was quickly put aside as the author provided enough of the back story for the main characters that I did not seem to be missing any particularly important information. While not the most intricate of mystery reads, I did find that the many other facets of the book kept my interest.
The main character, José Rodriguez, is a sergeant with the Savannah PD. On the eve of his vacation, José is training Officer Nowak (Ray’s niece) for the bomb squad… and things were not looking good for Nowak - she was way too slow in neutralizing the bomb in the simulation exercises. There is animosity between José and Ray as they were both up for recent promotion for lieutenant, and Ray got the promotion. I must say…I was put off by the following…and hoped the book would not have many diatribes like this from José’s musings regarding his sexuality:
“My gut twisted anytime I heard Ray’s name. He always seemed to be gunning for me. Part of me wondered if he knew I was hiding my homosexuality, and he wanted to out me in order to shame me.”
There were others on the force who were not fans of Ray… for example: Howie.
“Howie rubbed the top of his crew cut. ‘Man, if Ray were gone, I’d throw the biggest party Savannah has ever seen.’”
So with no love loss between well … most people and Ray, it is not surprising who turns up dead. Then the work begins. Trying to figure out who killed Ray. José decides he must solve the mystery before he allows himself to take his vacation.
The path to finding the killer was laid out well and I enjoyed the mystery and José’s professional musings. The number of potential suspects (both within and outside of the police department) provided for an interesting and extensive path to finding the killer.
Many of the supporting characters were interesting and their side stories added to my overall enjoyment of the book. I just hope that in future books, José can express his authentic and true self to all his family members. He deserves to allow himself the ability to fall in love and find a partner, because he is such a nice character. All in good time I imagine.
I look forward to exploring more titles by Lois Lavrisa.
