Murder, Murder, and more Murder Book Reviews

Updated on February 9, 2016

The Body Under the Bridge by Paul McCusker

I was sent a free copy of The Body Under the Bridge by Paul McCusker in exchange for only a honest and unbiased review of The Body Under the Bridge by Paul McCusker.

I enjored reading about Father Gilbert and his experiences as he fights his way through a murder and a mystery. I enjoyed the author's writing style. I have to say that I particularly enjoyed the beginning of the book and Father Gilbert's vision experience. I liked how vivid it was and the medallion that was left behind with no other evidence. I liked the fact the main character was a priest instead of a cop or psychic like in many other books and TV shows. If you enjoy murder mysteries with unique main characters that you will enjoy reading about this murder, priest, and the curse that unfolds.

Always Watching by Lynette Eason

I was sent a free copy of Always Watching by Lynette Eason in exchange only for my honest and unbiased review of the book.

Always Watching by Lynette Eason was an interesting read in that it focused on a group of female bodyguards who were protecting a client when the main bodyguard's throat was slit. The story then detours to a different bodyguard Olivia who then becomes the main character. I really like Olivia's character and her interaction with her client she always seemed in control and calm. I also liked how she involved the client's daughter in the case so that she would feel like she was helping too. I really enjoyed reading this book and I would recommend it to those who enjoy shows like NCIS, Crossing Lines, and Blacklist who enjoy strong female lead characters.

Review

At the time that I read A Piece of You (Sami Rizzo series) (Volume 3) by D M Annechino for review it was the only book by D M Annechino that I had read. I thought that without the information from the previous books I would be confused, but I was able to understand everything just fine. I was not confused by the characters nor the plot in the least. You do NOT have to read book one or two to enjoy book three, however I am sure that it might give the reader insights into the characters.

I greatly enjoyed the fast pace that the author set in this book. I am a huge fan of murder/detective novels so I was already excited to read this book as soon as I saw the cover. The characters are well developed throughout the course of the book. I liked that the female lead detective was strong woman with real convictions. However my favorite part of the book was actually the pieces that focused on the killer. I liked how there were italicized sections that were written from the killer's perspective. I found myself feeling for him as his true motives were discovered especially given that he killed with mercy by giving his victims a sedative first so that they would feel not pain. I enjoyed the psychological elements that came from getting inside the killer's head as he revealed more and more of himself to me. I have to say that I truly enjoyed the chance to understand the killer instead of only being allowed to understand the “good guys”; it added a unique element to the book that really pulled me in. I would love to read any book that comes after this one as the book was left slightly unfinished. I truly enjoyed this book and would recommend it to NCIS, blue bloods, and Law and Order fans.
