Killing in C Sharp Characters
Where would a light-hearted paranormal novel be without quirky characters? The cast of this tale does not disappoint.
Gethsemane Brown hails from the US, but now teaches music at a quaint Irish academy. Under ordinary circumstances, she would likely be pretty ordinary, but put her in a house with a ghost she befriends, and give her the reputation of people being murdered whenever she shows up, and the result is a wonderful character that anyone would enjoy spending time with.
Eamon, Gethsemane’s ghost of a friend, meshes with her very nicely. They are both protective of each other, and when one or the other falls into harm’s way, the other is quick to act! This devoted friendship fans the flames of literary conflict and pulls the reader right into the story.
The remainder of the cast includes a local police inspector, some unscrupulous writers, and a whole television crew determined to show the world that ghosts really do exist. All of the characters are gleefully flawed, and some of the backstories are very original. I can’t imagine this story being so good if any one of them was omitted.
There were no SPAG issues worth mentioning. The pace moved along nicely. I thought the character arcs were somewhat unique in that they didn’t go where I thought they would. But that’s a good thing.
The build to the climax is worth mentioning. Without giving any spoilers, let’s just say that the conflict naturally seems to build to a big showdown. You’re waiting for it. You know it’s coming. But when you get there – don’t blink! It’s over that fast. At first I felt a little disappointed, but then there’s this unexpected…. Well, you’ll just have to read it for yourself! (You won’t be disappointed. I promise!)
(I received a free copy of this book from Lone Star Book Blog Tours in exchange for my honest review.)
There’s a secondary plot about the vengeful ghost of a murdered Hungarian princess, which proves a bit distracting. But my real problem with Killing in C Sharp is its many deus ex machina and, even more so, its implausible ending. (To avoid spoilers, I won't go into detail, but trust me on this one.) And it’s a great pity. This novel could have been as wonderful as Murder in G Major and Death in D Minor with some restraint and revision. Here’s to hoping that author Alexia Gordon returns to her previous glory in time for book No. 4.
