“I first read this excellent novel in 2007 but at that time never wrote up my opinions. Now, with fresh eyes, I can honestly say that this re-read is still a five star debut novel. What a delightfully written solid mystery novel. The Authors asked me if I had read it...'Yes' with pleasure.
We have a recently licensed Private Investigator, Maczenzie Sullivan, his trusty partner, Irish Wolfhound, Whiskey as they are fully involved in a stake-out. The coincidences begin. The person being staked-out is the new office manager of Mac's best buddy, Jeff who owns a funeral parlor business. Why is this person being staked out? Because, there is a cool half a million dollars missing from the college, a man is dead, and the insurance company wants their money safe!
Does that sound direct enough? Well, its not as you quickly find out, while laughing aloud, bodies are flying, vehicles are inter-changed, crazed exterminators are out to eradicate, and even kitties are involved. The suspect, you ask? Why, the suspect, is fully championed by his family and friends. In fact that is part of the problem.
This rollicking adventure through Washington, D.C. will have you laughing, amazed at the twists and turns, caught up in the chases, stake-outs, kidnappings, and more. The deaths will startle you, yet this novel can be enjoyed by both cozy murder mystery lovers as well as more edgier fans of the genre.
This novel is available in all formats, so please give it a read, or re-read. ”
“ If you love a fast read for a mystery, then you'll enjoy the Sullivan Investigation series by Evelyn David. Mac Sullivan is a retired cop who's now a PI and has Whiskey, his faithful Irish wolfhound. He's on the case of an embezzlement at Concordia College, when a murder's taking place at the clock tower. And all fingers points to Rachel Brenner's brother, Dan Thayer, who's in hiding and suspicious. But she believes he's innocent and being framed--so does Rachel's son Sam and his friends Carrie and Ray. Sullivan and Rachel butt heads, but together they find out the truth a bit deeper behind the college, when someone else's murdered. And more suspicion is piled up on Dan, especially when the third body pops up. In the end, it's someone they didn't expect who's real evil and behind the scheme.
“Cute book! I recommend it for a quick and quick and easy summer read. With a very fast-paced plot and an unexpected ending, this book was a funny book that I could not put down. The characters were well-developed, but the only complaint I had was that there was too much characterization. I felt that the characters could have been described more through their dialogue and actions rather than narration.”Kristin wrote this review Thursday, May 29, 2008.
