Reel Life Crime by Cary Pepper


I want more of these types of stories.  It’s what I call a curl up in front of the fire with a bag of popcorn and some hot chocolate and sit down to a really good book.  I love the detective in this story and the fact that he just can’t seem to come to terms with who he is.  Can’t we all associate with that??

This is a great story, full of suspense and wonderfully real characters.  I had no trouble following the plot and the clues leading to the end.  I was able to guess what happened but that’s not the author’s fault…I read entirely too many books!  Regardless I loved it.  I hope he creates many more novels with these characters.

From what I’ve been reading, this book included, the old genre they used to call ‘spaghetti western’ where there are a ton of short stories surrounding a central theme or character are coming back.   Even as little as 10 years ago no one was writing those anymore.  Now, with new authors and the advent of e-books, these types of serial books are making a comeback and I have to say, this is an awesome first round.  Keep it up and keep them coming.
