Zandri's hero is far from a superstar, which is a welcome change from most. The fact that one of the dark crannies of his personality is his own failed suicide (which is portrayed so realistically that this old retired psychotherapist suspects Zandri is familiar with the disheartening and sometimes embarrassing observations and judgements of others on our hero's life.) I found Moonlight's reactions to others's often-cruel comments on his attempted suicide, as well as his own reflections on the act, are a rich addition to both the character and the story. (I wasn't crazy about "Moonlight" as the name of our antagonist, until I pondered such names as Spill-Lane and Kinsey and Plum. Moonlight's surely as good as Reacher!)
The plot of "Murder by Moonlight" keeps a steady pace through its many turns and surprises. Most of all, I think I liked the sardonic but non-condemning tone of Moonlight's assessments of other people. A thoroughly entertaining read. Thank you, Zandri. (I'll be getting your other works too.) (Ariel I.)
The final chapters are deliciously creepy, and the ultimate killing is delightfully fulfilling. Well done Mr. Zandri!
I'm a sucker for a well written detective novel (Thanks to Seth Harwood) and was hooked after the 1st chapter. Richard Moonlight is a wise cracking PI that left me laughing at many of his one liners amply placed thoughout the book. He's the usual tough guy with a sensitive side and I could not help bonding with the character.
Without giving anything away, the story has many turns and twists to it and if your a fan of this genre there are clues here and there that can be fleshed out if you really want to.
The ending has at least 3 twists to it and with each twist a new fact comes to life. Some you can guess, most you can't.
The book moves well and I highly recommend it even if your not a big "who dunnit" fan. Good writing wins the day here.
The woman, after coming to in the hospital, says she does not remember but it could not have been her son. As soon as she is released, she hires Dick Moonlight to prove his innocence. Moonlight has barely survived an attempted suicide and lives with an inoperable bullet in his brain which could move and kill him at any time. Still he functions as a PI and takes the case, not to prove or disprove innocence, though he would like to believe in innocence, but to find the truth.
This is not like a mad dash to the finish but a studied walk, the truth is hard to come by and not pleasant. The PI is determined and manages to retain some belief in humanity. Powerful read and a good mystery.
