Product Description

Book 3 in the Neil Marshall Mystery novel series - People in glass houses don’t throw stones . . . They shoot to kill. Congressional candidate Chip Gunn figures he has the election in the palm of his hand. But when Gunn’s guard is stabbed during a high profile fund-raising event catered by chef and amateur sleuth Neil Marshall, all hell breaks loose.Things only get worse when the victim vanishes and Neil’s assistant is left holding a bloody knife. Quickly, a lethal mystery unravels . . .

Publishers Weekly said: "Houston’s renaissance man is back. Poet, chef, good Samaritan, and sleuth Neil Marshall must solve his most difficult murder to date when a co-worker is accused of murdering her ex-boyfriend. Meanwhile, Neil’s fellow student and Kerouac wannabe is missing, although he communicates by sending rambling poetry hinting that he is about to kill a crooked congressional candidate. Although Neil has good reason to see the candidate dead, he works with his teacher and not-so-secret love to interpret these poems, treating the reader to a verbal feast . . ."

5.0 out of 5 stars Avery talented author pens a terrific serio-comic mystery 21 July 1997
By A Customer - Published on
Neil Marshall would be a very happy person if everyone would just leave
him alone so that he could cook his culinary masterpieces and perfect his
poetry writing skills. Unfortunately, his generous nature would never allow
him to abandon a friend in need. Since many of his friends seem to end up in
trouble, Neil is on a first name basis with most of the local police,
dangerous thugs, crooked politicians, and world famous private investigators
and lawyers. His connections come in handy when Neil is cooking and catering
a dinner part for a local thug, who wants to be the mayor.

It seems that one of Neil's kitchen help, Mattie, has been set up to
make it look as if she killed her former lover using a meat cleaver.
However, no body is found and the goons clean up the evidence before Neil
can even think of his next move. He takes Mattie home with him, but the kind
gesture turns into a ton of trouble from the police and the local criminals.
When Mattie's ex-lover is finally found dead in her apartment. She is
arrested for the crime. Neil plans to prove her innocence even if it means
risking his own life to do it.

With the exception of comic book "hero" Major Bummer (who would rather
chill like most teens), if ever there has been a more reluctant hero than Tim
Hemlin's protagonists, this reviewer has not come across him/her yet. Neil's
hesitancy to get involved makes the culinary chef cum poet much more
invigorating and realistic than most amateur detective tales. PEOPLE IN GLASS
HOUSES is a brisk entry in a wonderful culinary mystery series that, though
not everyone's palate, but will be enjoyed by readers who like to be
entertained in a less cerebral manner.

4.0 out of 5 stars The book was good, very well written 20 September 2016
By PEaton - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
So when I was given this book to read, I did not realize that it was the third in a series of which I had not read the first two. That being said, I knew there was a back story, but it didn't really affect me being able to read this one. The book was good, very well written. I am used to a murder mystery book having a detective as the protagonist. It was weird at first to have a chef-poet acting as the crime-solver, but I liked it in the end. The main character Neil Marshall is generally an easy going guy, easy to like. But his need to help his loved ones drives him into some pretty heavy situations. He has a buddy in the book that is a wannabe hippie, Dean. Whenever his parts came up, I could only ever hear Tommy Chong in my head. There is some action in the book and corrupt politicians. The story has a good ending and I recommend it. We were given a copy of this book from Loving the Book in exchange for an honest review.

5.0 out of 5 stars I would definitely read his books again 29 September 2016
By Amazon Lover Becca - Published on
I received this book via Loving the Book in exchange for an honest review -

I enjoyed reading Author Tim Hemlin's first too books so I had no doubt I'd love this book. And, of course, I was not disappointed. The think I love best about his books is that while they are mystery and there is murder, there is not the creepy feeling of not being able to sleep or having to have all the lights on in the house. Every person in the book has a reason, has a story, has a motive (imagined or real) and you can connect with them. It's fun to see how Neil Marshall is somehow pulled into the timelines that land him in trouble and then watch as he pieces together the clues that get him out of trouble. I would definitely read this and all his books again. And I highly recommend them!
5.0 out of 5 stars As his student, this is my opinion 16 May 2005
A Kid's Review - Published on
I am an eighth grader at my local middle school where Mr. Hemlin is the English teacher. I love his teaching methods and get along well with the kids in his class. I have not read one of his books yet, but I do know that he is a good writer and highly recomended. I encourage you to read one of his books.

3.0 out of 5 stars standard fair 5 November 2002
By Jeff Hemlin - Published on
Having bought this novel for obvious reasons, devouring it was a different matter. The recipe, preparation and presentation were - predictable and not very imaginative.
At the end - I felt that I had just watched a Matt Houston episode - with different, rather bland characters. It should have been a little slow cooked Texas BBQ, but all I felt was the humidity of the Gulf Coast.
