I'm a master mystery solver. I read very few books whose ending I can't figure out long before I'm there, but A LITTLE DEATH IN DIXE has a fantastic ending that I never saw coming. Thank you, Ms. Turner, for a wonderful read!
Every now and then, I am surprised by the intensity of the way a new novel will grab me. In fact, several times this year, the intense novels have been written by authors making their debut in the publishing world. A Little Death in Dixie is one of those. Recommended for readers age 17 and up who love mysteries with one caviat. If you are offended by coarse language, there is a little of it in this novel... but not nearly as much as you find in other new books and the offensive language - used here as an element of character development - does not detract from the reader's enjoyment of the story.
This book was provided to me free by the publisher in exchange for this review. This review has been simultaneously published on Dragon Views, LibraryThing and Amazon.com
I did have some frustration with the characters themselves; they seemed shallow and disconnected, even though the author linked them together with with various long and short term relationships. Certain conversations and circumstances were just not very believable, with the exception of the trail of destruction an addict can leave behind, and the frustrating blindness of codependency.
However, it IS a work of fiction, and overall it's a job well done.
Wish I could give it a higher review, but I will reserve that for this obviously talented author's future works.
Lisa Turner writes this story from different viewpoints, Billy the detective, Mercy the sister, and Buck the Judge, and Dexter the coroner. Because of that, I think it took me a little longer to warm up to the characters. Turner eventually settles on Billy as the central character, but I almost wish it was Mercy. While it would have made it harder to tell some of the meat and bones of the case, it would have given it more of an emotional pull. I found Mercy to be interesting, but perhaps a little underdeveloped.
The plot has lots of twists and turns and even surprised me a little, which is not easy to do. I won't divulge the end but I was impressed with the complexity of the plot. The devil is in the details, though, and there were many that need to be attend. Although, for the most part these details weren't central to the plot, they were distracting, for example the dog from the car accident with 30 stitches that is up moving around the next day or the slightly muddled section where the coroner goes investigating... The ending was solid and well resolved.
All in all, this was a solid debut novel from Lisa Turner, and I will be interested to see how her writing develops.
