Asked to investigate the grizzly murder of a lawyer by the dead man’s widow, Shap is far from certain if this means he’ll be working for a cold blooded murderer. As with the first two books in the series, you don’t know the full picture until the very end of the story and that’s, surely, how all crime fiction novels should be.
Shap’s personal life is a significant part of each book and only serves to enrich the overall story.
This series offers everything you could ask for from the genre. Fully drawn characters, intelligent and twisty plots, believable dialogues and richly drawn settings. I pass the time with lesser books until another Nils Shapiro novel comes along.
I adore Nils Shapiro, and this book elevated him to another level in my appreciation of the character, his crime solving acumen and his personal musings on life and people. I actually highlighted a passage in this book, and I have never done that before. It just summed up a sentiment I have and have never been able to explain in such a meaningful and concise manner.
This book can be read as a stand alone if you have not read his other books, but if you start here, be prepared to go back and read the first two in the series. Well worth it.
I look forward to more books in this series. If you prefer audio books, I am familiar with the narrator. He is very good, so go for it.
I buy a LOT of books, mostly mysteries, many of them via Kindle unlimited. But these are clearly a step above most of those, as they should be - they aren't "free". Still, I felt that the price was worth it and I'll buy the 4th one, should Matt write another.
