Murder in the Wings is another brilliant novel in the DI Frank Lyle Mystery series. Though not as dark as Heir to Misfortune (Book Three), Murder in the Wings still tackles some adult subjects such as sexual jealousy, infidelity, and drug use. Madison approaches these topics with her usual straightforward, honest style that I've come to expect and appreciate in her novels. Crime scenes and investigative procedures are graphic and extremely well-researched, but what I love about Madison's novels are the human aspects. I'll warn you now--if you're a homophobe, this novel is NOT for you. One of the subplots involves a romance including love scenes between two gay men. The relationship between the two characters is very sweet and romantic, but it can also get quite spicy, so this is not a book for underage readers. Indeed, the entire book is very realistic and gritty, so readers with tender sensibilities should read with caution.
Over the course of the series, I've come to know Lyle and his team as intimately as I know my own family. I know their likes and dislikes, their strengths and weaknesses, and their quirks. Lyle is a passionately dedicated family man whose wife, Jayseera, is staunchly in his corner. As an ex-cop, she understands that his job must sometimes take front and center.Read more ›
The Good: The characters were vivid and well-fleshed out, and there were enough red herrings to keep me guessing throughout as to how the story would take its twists and turns, and how it would end. While it was tricky to keep up with the different points-of-view from lots of characters, I quite liked it, as it gave an insight into different characters as the story went on, driving the story deeper. This was obviously a well-researched book as well, as all the detective-work and procedural elements were spot on and left nothing out. Another point is that while the book refers back to things from previous books in the series, it explains and expands these points well enough that this book really can be read as a standalone.
The Bad: There were a couple of lines in the book where it seemed like phrases or words were repeated in quite close proximity, such as within a couple of pages. I understand characters can't have something different to say all the time, especially if it's something they always say, but it would have been nice to see a few words tweaked. This isn't a huge thing though, as it certainly didn't detract from the story, OR how enjoyable the storyline was.
Overall: This was a great, solid mystery story. I really enjoyed it, and all of the characters really brought the book to life. I would recommend this for anyone who likes British mystery stories with engaging characters who all get a say.
*I was given a copy of this book from the author, in exchange for an honest review.
