The story centers around a murder that just happens to be the first case that Eddie has gotten, seems that having your clients die on you and you finding the body never sits well with the police. So for the rest of the novel we see Eddie going through all kinds of mental gyrations, a couple of beatings and of course trying to keep his Mom and old girlfriend (and his even older one) happy.
The mystery is done very well, nothing too bizarre that nobody could figure out but if you pay close attention you might be able to guess it before the end (I kinda did ..... I think) and if I had any regrets about this book it would have to be that Tommy was not given what he deserved but I am a bit of a revenge junkie in my reading:)
Bottom Line: This is a great way to spend a day or two of reading, it is not boring and actually kept me up very late to finish the last 3 chapters since there was no way I was going to bed to wonder "whodunnit". Great job and 4.5 Stars (rounded up for Amazon)
At the outset let me mention that this IS a British mystery (actually more of a Brit-American mutt), so if you are in the least put off by foreign terms or idioms you might want to consider another selection. I found quite a few terms and inside jokes that I was clueless about (and I have friends in the UK that I communicate with regularly), such as who the heck is Fred Dibner (turns out – thanks to Google - it’s Dibnah) but I didn’t consider that a reason to abandon ship and I’m glad I didn’t. For accuracy freaks, if it’s going to bother you when the protagonist states, “I thumbed her wrist,” checking a body for a pulse when most people realize you wouldn’t use a thumb since the thumb has a pulse of its own, again…you might want to consider another selection.
I enjoyed this author’s style enough to not be put off by a rather predictable plot, and the repartee between characters was often on the side of gallows humor (although that may be ‘stretching it’ – oopsie), which I like a lot. Quite a bit of action, although anyone experienced with Tae Kwon Do may find nits to pick. I wasn’t given squat for this honest review, but honestly I’d give it a recommend. All things considered, here are the standings:
(1) Zero paranormal/supernatural/magic components;
(2) Occasional profanity;
(3) No gooey romance;
(4) No explicit sex;
(5) Some violence, but not graphic;
(6) No child abuse;
(7) No animal abuse;
(8) No alternative lifestyle agenda or promotion;
(9) Not a cliffhanger ending;
(10) Grammar and punctuation police, come ahead on: I know you'll find something
I hope Mr. Murphy can pull it together for future books, because there is a lot of potential there, just crazy proportions for this particular recipe. (2 cups salt....one tablespoon flour).
